Every single teacher/school staff person I know
Lights a flame in a child to watch it grow.
Just like a candle that burns in the night....
Hoping that all can see it's light.....
In the future, burning steady and bright.

C. L. Salter staff received wonderful, scented candles from our PTO.  What a way to "brighten" our day!

Teachers and staff members everywhere
Are popping here and popping there;
We appreciate the healthy popcorn snack...
To help us get our "poppy self" back!

Who doesn't need an extra serving of "poppy" this time of year?  We are all in our "end of the year tizzy mode"!  Our wonderful PTO likes to keep us "popping" so we all were given a bag of popcorn!

While fruit treats are healthy and strawberries are my fave-
We all know what teachers mostly crave...
All fruit is good and we all love to eat;
But when chocolate is added-oh,  my, what a treat!

This is what we found on the work room table yesterday!  Can we say "yummy" and "spoiled?"  

This morning when we arrived to school
We found this; isn't it cool?
A clipboard and pen to keep us in line...
Being a teacher is simply divine!
3 days of teacher appreciation....
We have THE best PTO in the NATION!

We can all stay on task with our cute clipboards and matching pen.  Thank you to our wonderful PTO for three (3) days of making us feel so loved and special!  Y'all are the icing on our cake, for sure!

Principal Johnson
Secretary Light

Principal & Secretary of the Day!

Our schools need money to buy lots of "stuff"
And these two girls sold more than enough!
They are the highest sellers in C. L. Salter School-
They are principal and secretary for the day-now that's COOL!

LaMaria and Macy can tell you all about
How the office life is-there's no doubt!
Their future is looking so bright and well
And it all began with items to sell.

If you would like to be where they are
Just set your aim high and you will go far!
I'm sure they'd be happy to share some tips with you-
Straight from the heart of seller #1 and #2!

The reason for success across the nation
Is why this week is Teacher Appreciation!
They give of themselves the whole year through
Because they want what is best for you!
They get up early and stay up late
They are the last in line; they always wait.
They grade your papers wherever they go
Their red pens and grade books are always in tow!
They support you at school and some of your events
They laugh at your jokes (even the ones that make no sense)!
They pat you on your back when you have been good
They let you know, too, when you've not been as you should.
They try their best to be honest and fair
They want you to know how much they care.
During this week when we celebrate education....
Try YOUR best to show your teacher "a little appreciation!"

It's Almost May....

With the month of May approaching
Lots of things are ending....
A school  year or school career,
A child's high school days,
A child's elementary days,
Playing high school sports,
Cheering or participating in the band program.

This is the last time you will see some of the people you go to school or work with.
Memories that warm the heart will last forever.
Speak kindly to your friends and even kinder to your 
"frien-enemies."  You never know when "those words used" will be the last words you say or they hear.

April showers bring May flowers
Wherever they may grow.
Making memories or choosing not to....
Only you will know!

Happy May, 2014....the last month of the 2013-2014
school year!

I just want you to know
That everywhere I go -
Here at Salter School...
I see lots and lots that's COOL!

I hear learning through the door;
I open it...and I see even more!
Just when I think I've seen it all---
Poof!  I see more hanging in the hall!

I see teachers doing so much
Teaching with their "special touch."
I see our principal "principaling" around!
We all know she's THE best in town!

So, if you'd like to see something cool
Just come on over to Salter School!
It will truly be worth your while
And what you see will make you smile!

C. L. Salter is proud to celebrate and educate our students diverse heritages.  Please enjoy this movie as we share a portion of our African-American History Month Celebration.  The entire school has celebrated in different ways with readers, plays, projects, poems, activities, t-shirts and variations to the lunch menu.  February is the perfect month to celebrate diversity as it is a month of diverse holidays.
At C. L. Salter we are proud to be
Proud of our diversity.
Proud of those who've gone before us
Proud of those who've sang the chorus.
Proud of those who've taught us all
To always keep our eye on the ball!
We know where we've been; we know where we are;
Our goal is simple:  We reach for that bright star.
We look to the future and learn from the past;
By working together, we are free at last!
Each invention, speech and contribution
Help pave the road for our restitution...
Equal we are; brotherly love we show-
Living our walk everywhere we go.
This is C. L. Salter-This is what we believe:
A place where all can learn and achieve!


Black History is celebrated the whole month through
The groundhog knows his part in the month, too!
Both Lincoln and Washington celebrate their birth
We both know what their contributions are worth!
It's the perfect month for learning diversity.....
Love is the change that begins in you and me!
