Salem Community Patriot 10 - October 29, 2010
submitted by Barron School Library: In the library, all of the classes have been working hard learning and reviewing library skills. The kindergarten children and the first graders are compiling their very own booklets about taking care of library books. The first and second graders are learning about the parts of the book. Third-grade classes are learning how to use our computerized card catalog program called “Destiny” and will practicing with it to find the books they want to borrow each week. Destiny is a standard program utilized throughout the school district, so our students will be using it as they move on to Woodbury and Salem High School as well. Grades four and five have been reviewing all the various parts of a book, as well as the Destiny program. Students will take a break from all the hard work and enjoy some Halloween stories during the last week of October. Resource Room: The students belonging to the Resource Room community are off to
a terrific start this year! The fourth and fifth graders have been studying the comprehension strategy “Activating Prior Knowledge” for the past two weeks. They demonstrated their understanding of this concept by preparing and teaching a lesson of their very own to a group of third- grade students. This opportunity was exciting for all of the children as
PATRICK J. BICK
Write in Candidate for
House of Representatives New Hampshire 2nd District
My name is Patrick Bick, and I would consider it a privilege to serve New Hampshire as the Second Congressional District Representative in the U.S. Congress in Washington, D.C. After retiring six years ago and constantly complaining about the political climate and what should be done about it, my family got tired of hearing my discontent. One day my daughter said, "You've got some good ideas, dad. Why don't you just quit complaining and run for office?"
“How are we now being governed? Does the current White House truly represent you and your family? Certainly we are not being governed the way our founding fathers had planned. I am running for the House of Representatives so I can represent those whose voices are not being heard and who want to make a change.”
One person matters. Vote and let your voice be heard! Keeping the founding fathers dream and purpose alive. Vote for the Right Issues and CHANGE LIVES!
• Ethics • Energy • Education
• Healthcare • Taxes • Finances • Social Issues • Government • Veterans • Abstinence
• Environment • Abortion
These are some of the issues I am focusing on during my campaign. If you wish to look at my view of things, please visit my website!
Patrick, his wife Donna, and their 5 grandchildren. Family is a top priority for Patrick and Donna, and the issue of education is extremely important as it impacts our children's futures.

Katelyn Fauchers gets ready Sale Excited to start the project
they learned from one another. Fourth and fifth graders have also been learning about how to utilize
text features while reading non-fiction. The students did some work with text mapping and created keys that could be referenced to find their thinking, bold words, italics, captions, subheadings, and pictures. Students were able to visualize an article in its entirety when they explored a piece of writing cut apart with pages laid side by side on long paper. The results of their work are displayed just outside the Resource Room. In math, students of all levels are investigating many new concepts,
such as expanded notation, trade-first subtraction, line plots, tally marks, and prime factorization. The online educational site Education City has been extremely valuable in our resource room, because it is a place where students can apply and learn new skills through technology. The students are showing tremendous progress across the board. The Barron Staff attributes such growth to the students’ motivation and the home support of the Barron families. Students in grades 3-5 should be commended for their perseverance
during our recent NECAP state tests. The children utilized many test- taking strategies throughout the assessments and all look forward to seeing the results of their hard work in the coming months. We have a correction from last
week’s Barron School article. We had posted that the Turkey Trot Walk was free when, in fact, there is a $10 fee.
Haigh Kids Get Creative
by Robyn Hatch Haigh School recently held an exciting horticultural program, as they have done in years past, for the kids to participate in after class. This year, all the children designed creative scarecrows to take home. With brown paper
bags, paper plates, yarn, and jiggly eyes to fuel creativity, each child created their own unique scarecrow. With plenty of laughter going on, each child left with a project that they could hang on a door at their homes.
