"Providing Excellent Christian Education"

Good News!

All Illinois schools are required to do lead testing in their buildings before the end of 2017.  Salem has done this and the results show that we are well below the safe limits for safe water for our children!  (The report can be found under forms.)

The Best Gets Better!

New expanded program for 3-year-olds!  Salem now has  a reasonably priced, five-day (with optional daycare) preschool program for next school year.  Your child will be at Salem all day in a up-to-date, developmentally appropriate program!  Look under our preschool tab for more information!

Picture Retake Day is Nov. 21

If you want your child's school pictures retaken, or taken because they were absent Picture Day, Retake Day is Nov. 21.  If it is a retake, the original packet with will need to be turned into the school office by 8:00 Nov. 21.



Teachers Need a Break!!!

On the average our teachers' will start their day at school by 7:00am and leave no sooner than 3:45pm.  Some Salem teachers do not leave the school until after six, sometimes seven.  They are busy setting up their classrooms for the next day, making copies of materials needed, lining up their art supplies, etc.  Then when they get home they most likely will have papers to grade.  And, they do this without even a bathroom break until after 3:25 or so.  We here at Salem are very blessed to have such remarkable and decicated teachers teaching our students!  This is the reason to put out the help needed to give them a 30 minute break during the lunch recess.  Please think about it and volunteer if you can do so.  Thank you and God's blessings on you.
