School News North Salem
submitted by North Salem School There is nothing like holiday music to put you in a festive mood and
our Fifth Grade Chorus worked it’s magic last week! We’d like to thank Mrs. Minkle and the students who performed like true professionals at our annual 5th Grade Winter Concert! They gave an outstanding performance for family, friends and staff.
It was a treat to hear such a
great singing voices and such talent on the recorders, plus wonderful dancing too! Parents, relatives and friends are also invited to hear their students
play their instruments at the North Salem School Fifth Grade Band Performance on Thursday, December 22, at 2 p.m. in the school gym. Students will perform a variety of songs, including holiday favorites, solos and duets. All that practice is sure to pay off during this annual favorite! Thank you to Robyn Glickel and Trish DelVecchio for all their hard
work in making our holiday shopping extravaganza a success! From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., parents, students and the general public had the opportunity to shop for some very unique and hand crafted gifts. New this year, the fair included a special guest who made his way from the North Pole to visit with children at the fair! Santa Claus was seen taking photos with students and parents too! Thanks to Salem Family Resources for sponsoring Santa’s appearance, it was a big hit!

are really great! November was a very busy and exciting month for Grade One. Can you tell they have been learning to count by twos? They are busy working on fives and tens too. Counting this way helps them remember how to count with pennies, nickels and dimes. Soon, they will be able to pay for items from the Barron School Store all by themselves. They have also been focusing on comparing numbers and learning addition and subtraction facts.
the morning they add up lunch choices, or compare the temperature from one day to the next. They have discovered that numbers are used in many different ways as they do calendar time each day. Concentrating on sight word and short vowels through activities and
games helps them find word wall words, read morning messages, and of course, read lots of “just right” books! The students have been working very hard to earn their Barron B’s. Mr. Di Nardo and Mrs. Roy will be presenting reading awards this week. Many students have earned their Barron B and are working on their ‘100’ pin. The teachers and students would like to thank the parent volunteers for listening to them read every week. The students look forward to their one-on-one reading time with the parents. During November students discovered lots of information about the
Pilgrims. Grade One now has a better understanding of how difficult the voyage on the Mayflower was and how hard the pilgrims had to work everyday-even the children. First Graders are so thankful that their daily lives are easier than theirs! As December quickly flies by, the children are exploring and learning
about the many different ways people celebrate the holidays and share the spirit of the season. First Grade would like to wish Happy Holidays to all their family and friends. Barron School Kindergarten News In kindergarten, students are having so much fun in learning this
year! The children are excited to come to school everyday to make new educational connections and fun discoveries. They also are preparing for the colder weather in the month of December.

Barron Chorus It was wonderful to meet with parents and family members at parent/
teacher conferences. Staff and faculty enjoyed discussing the progress that has been made and collaboratively coming up with goals to work towards as the year goes on. Homework is now going home and the children seem to love working on it and even send it in early! Their first Thanksgiving feast was a
great success. The children worked hard on creating Pilgrim and Native American hats. They discussed what it means to be thankful and what it means to give thanks. Students sat together with friends and feasted on delicious food such as carrots, celery and homemade breads. They also sang their thanksgiving song for Mr. DiNardo. Students are working on becoming
great authors with the addition of Writer’s Workshop to their day. During the workshop they listen to the lesson, write in their new writing folders, and share with their classmates. The Kindergarten staff is looking
forward to working with the children to achieve all of their goals and to make it a fantastic year!
