A Message from Principal Driscoll
Happy Friday! Just a reminder that Monday is a half day for students. Conferences will be held on Monday afternoon and all day Tuesday. Please be on the lookout for a feedback form that will be sent Tuesday afternoon after conferences. Thanksgiving recess will be held from Wednesday through Friday.
School pictures have been distributed to students. Please see important information below regarding retake/makeup picture day.
Join me in wishing Ms. Natalie Andrews and the Salem School Choir best of luck as they perform the National Anthem at the start of the Hartford Wolfpack game this weekend. What an awesome opportunity for our students! Hope to see you there!
Many of our third and fourth graders will participate in the Girls on the Run 5k this weekend at Great Neck Elementary school. Big shout out to Tory Sullivan, Kim Grillo and Sarah Brousseau for their time and dedication to these girls and the GOTR program!
Salem School will be participating once again in CCMC's PJ Day for the Kids on December 8th. Please click here if you would like to donate to our team and support the fight against pediatric cancer.
The next edition of Tales will come the week after Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and are able to rest, relax and enjoy the time away. I am certainly thankful to be a part of this incredible community.
