School News Barron
submitted by Barron School, Grade 4 Spring has finally arrived and our grade 4 students have been
working hard. We have been learning about the relationships between fractions, decimals, and percents in math, so now we know how to calculate the sales price of an item that is 25 percent off! Our Friday Math Workshops continue to be a fun and engaging time for the students, as they practice math concepts through games and activities. Readers’ Workshop continues to be a treasured time; we have read and written our own Native American myths,
memorized poetry, and learned about the features of nonfiction text. We have begun our extended study of New Hampshire and we are looking forward to our upcoming field trip to the State House and the Museum of New Hampshire History. In science, we have been learning about our changing Earth, Rocks and Minerals, and Weather Systems. We are looking forward to the upcoming Science NECAP test, too, so we’ll be working on some interesting labs in preparation for the tests.

submitted by North Salem School Congratulations to all the students who participated in the third annual Fitness Fundraiser at North Salem! Thank you to all the parents, guardians, friends, and relatives who sponsored our students. Your generous donations will go directly to finalizing our new playground, which will be installed after the school’s construction is complete. Thank you to Mrs. LaVallo, who organized the Fitness Fundraiser, and to all the volunteers who helped out that day. During the course of the day, each grade participated in several athletic stations. On a related note, thank you to Rebecca Daniels and the entire Playground Committee, who has worked hard over the past few years to raise money and to select the most appropriate playground equipment for our school. Your efforts are most appreciated. It’s hard to believe that it is the last year of elementary school for our outgoing fifth-grade class. They have come a long way since first grade and are ready for continued success on their educational journey to middle school! To wish them luck and to give the students a chance to celebrate, the North Salem PTA generously sponsors a “Fifth Grade Celebration.” This year, the celebration will be held on Tuesday, June 14, at the Salem Boys & Girls Club. The celebration begins at 10 a.m. and ends around 1 p.m. The D.J. has been hired – “Get Down Tonight Entertainment,” and food will be provided by Fuddruckers. There will be a “Luau/Beach Party” theme, and children have the option of wearing luau/beach party- inspired clothing. There will also be an ice cream sundae bar for dessert. This will be a peanut-free activity. Students will arrive back at North Salem around 1:30/1:45 p.m. At that time, they will be able to get yearbooks signed, etc. Please know that all fifth-grade
parents/guardians are invited to drop by the Salem Boys & Girls Club to see their children. This will give you a chance to wish everyone well next year! If any fifth-grade parent/guardian wishes to volunteer and/or donate items needed, and to be included on the “5th Grade Celebration” e-mail distribution list, please send an e-mail to Donna Kish at firstname.lastname@example.org
, who will be e-mailing everyone updates on the celebration, as well as volunteer opportunities and supplies needed.
He has been entertaining children for more than a decade, and North Salem students were delighted to have musician Rick Charette perform for them. Students were singing and dancing along to his popular and catchy songs like “I Love Mud,” “Humunukuapuahah,” “Sugar Sharks,” and more! The concert coincided with a Spirit Day – Beach Day, which made for even more fun.
On a musical note, the North Salem Fifth Grade Chorus will perform a concert, “Disney Spectacular,” on Tuesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. In addition, the North Salem Fifth Grade Band will join the fifth-grade band students from all six Salem elementary schools in the annual Salem School District Fifth Grade Band Concert to be held on Tuesday evening, June 7, at 6 p.m. at Salem High School. Students caught displaying their “responsible” ways as part of the Character Counts program include: Damian Gigante, Steven Burke, Jacob McLean, Madison Gee, John Moeckel, Megan Turner, Jordan Labossiere, Sydney Chretien, Trenton Lin, Karleigh Chretien, Timothy Spampinato, Emily Gaudette, Riley Lampert, Carly Saif, April Clark, Miss Carstairs’ Class, Elin O’Neill, and Ben Record.

Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Opens for Business in Greater Salem
Metropolis now offers a unique option for parents and struggling students: affordable, one-on-one tutoring by qualified teachers in your home. Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services, the nation’s fastest
growing in-home tutoring company, has opened a branch in Greater Salem. Club Z! provides high-quality, individualized tutoring to students in the security of their homes, at times convenient to parents. According to Lewis Malburne, owner to the new Greater Salem Club Z!, “Tutoring is performed in the student’s home in order to provide a comfortable and non-competitive environment for learning. In-home tutoring eliminates the pressure and embarrassment of the classroom setting and allows each student to focus on the lesson at hand.” “Club Z! reaches students more quickly and effectively,” according to Mr. Malburne, “because tutors give students the individual attention they need, making each child more comfortable, eager, and confident about learning.” Parents also benefit from the convenience of in-home tutoring, according to Mr. Malburne. Club Z! tutors have flexible schedules and can accommodate working parents. Most tutoring is performed after normal business hours and on weekends. Furthermore, parents are not pressed for time by having to provide transportation for their child to and from a learning center. The Greater Salem Club Z! is locally owned and
operated, as are all 300-plus Club Z! franchises throughout the United States. Each franchise employs local teachers and degreed professionals to perform the tutoring services. Club Z! tutors are either state-certified public or private school teachers, or degreed professionals with expertise in the area they are tutoring. Club Z! matches tutors with students based on their
individual academic needs and personality. Tutors’ teaching styles are highly individualized and tailored specifically to the student. With Club Z!, a student has the same tutor for the entire program, with lessons following the same curriculum the student is learning at school. Tutors do not introduce additional material or require outside work. Students work at their own pace, with most sessions lasting from one to two hours, depending on the age and need of the student. Club Z! offers tutoring in all core subjects—reading, math, science, computers, language arts, and much more. Club Z! also provides tutoring in study skills, SAT, ACT, and other assessment test preparation, as well as specialized services for children with learning disabilities. Club Z! does not require long-term contracts. Parents can end tutoring at any time. Find out more about the Greater Salem Club Z! by calling 685-3334 or by visiting the Club Z!

“This staff makes Mom number one.”
There is no other time in life when customer service becomes as important as the day you begin to face the changing needs of an aging parent or loved one.
That’s how Richard Robidoux felt about looking for answers when his mother, Priscilla, needed him the most.
His parents were living in Florida when his father passed away. While Priscilla had friends to look in on her, Richard knew she needed extra help. And, her memory was changing.
“That’s when I had Mother move closer to us and into Windham Terrace,” Richard says. “Everything has been wonderful. Windham Terrace is beautiful. But by far, the staff makes all the difference.”
Richard is right. The staff at Windham Terrace, an exceptional assisted living community, takes customer service to the next level. They have an intimate interest in one thing: the well-being of all who live there. If you are looking for answers to the changing needs of aging, call Lynda Brislin today at (603) 437-4600.
Resident Priscilla Robidoux, and her son, Richard.
