Visit to the Murals of Talladega College and Savery Library

The city of Talladega has such rich history and we were able to visit one such place with the Ambassadors. Students toured the library and heard the story of The Amistad Murals and The 1942 Mural Series. The Amistad Murals were commissioned by the Board of Trustees of Talladega College to pay homage to the American Missionary Association for its role in founding Talladega College. The murals were completed and unveiled at the dedication of the newly constructed Savery Library on April 15, 1939.

On April 26, 1942, a new series of three murals were unveiled and dedicated as part of the celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the College. The new murals depict an Underground Railroad Scene, the opening Day of school at Talladega College and the building of Savery Library.

Ambassadors Visit the Talladega Healthcare Facility

Sixth grade Ambassadors visited the Talladega Healthcare Facility today. The students sang Christmas songs and shared small gifts with the residents. Smiling faces could be seen all over the room. Way to go Ambassadors!

~Salter Students Plant Their Own Garden~

Create your own video slideshow at

Every grade participated in planting vegetables in our raised garden beds. Each grade level planted a different vegetable in their garden. The students were responsible for hoeing their garden to break up the dirt, planting their seeds in the garden, and watering their garden on this day. This will teach our students how to cultivate thier own garden in the future. This also teaches the students the life cycle of a plant/vegetables. Once the vegetables have grown completely, the lunchroom ladies will supply the students with their garden-grown vegetables!

Archery Fund Raiser

Thanks to Coach Darby for providing a creative way for the students at Salter to attend the Archery Competition. Students were allowed to purchase pieces of tape and vote for the teacher or staff member they would like to see taped to the wall on Friday, March 5, 2010. The lucky winners were Ms. Ensley, fourth grade teacher, and Mrs. Griffin, our principal.

As you can imagine, the students really got into this event resulting in over 400 pieces of tape being sold. Ms. Ensley and Mrs. Griffin were great sports as each student who purchased tape was allowed a time to "tape them to the wall."

Thanks Coach, Ms. Ensley and Mrs. Griffin.
