"Build - A Book"

Salter's "Build -A- Book" family night brought families together to create their very own book.  We purchased "Klutz Build - a -Book" kits with Title I parent involvement funds.  This was our first time to promote this event and didn't know what to expect.  We could not believe how many families showed up! The entire cafeteria was filled with parents and students.  Build - A - Book night provided the perfect setting for family time at our school.  The teachers and families had lots of fun!  Thanks to Mrs. Griffin and Mr. Campbell for hosting this event for students and parents.

A Work in Progress

Thank you to Mr. Tommy Moorehead for the beautiful painting that has been added to the Salter lunchroom.  This project is being funded by a grant from the Heritage Hall Education Foundation. Be on the lookout! There is more to come with the Tuscan theme that has been chosen to make the lunchroom a more inviting place.

"The Principal's Principles"

GRATITUDE - Gratitude means being thankful for someone or something.  People who feel gratitude and say "thank you" regularly are happier. Gratitude has a boomerang effect, because the good feelings that start when you say "thank you," always seem to come back and make you feel better too. Remember, you are the only one who chooses how you think, feel and respond to a situation.  Every time you feel thankful and say "thank you," you are strengthening your gratitude attitude! And that helps fill our school and community with positive power!
