Salem Elementary School is participating in Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) which is a school-based program that is increasingly being implemented across the United States as a result of the evidence produced from research.  Essentially, yoga is a practice of "mindfulness in motion" that uses the body to promote awareness of the present moment. KAY addresses stress and anxiety, promotes social and emotional learning, and physical and emotional health.  All basic requirements for readiness to learn and for a positive and healthy school climate.  This program provides an amazing curriculum designed to motivate children to be active, build confidence, and manage the spectrum of emotions that they experience in their day-to-day activities.

Lowe's Heroes employees

Lowe's Heroes are Lowe's employees who are engaged in community service projects for nonprofit organizations, homeowners and local schools in need.  Salem Elementary was fortunate to be the recipient of the Lowe's Heroes Project.  Staff members from the Clarksburg Lowe's store volunteered their time to install a new half-court basketball court with a brand new basketball hoop.  Lowe’s also donated several new basketballs for the students. Also, contributing to the completion of the project was Bill’s Concrete of West Union who laid the concrete slab for the court, and Central Supply of Clarksburg who supplied the concrete. The staff and students from Salem Elementary are extremely grateful for the work that these three businesses have done for the school.

Salem Elementary was recently the recipient of the Lowe's Heroes Project.  Several staff members from the Clarksburg Lowe's store came to the school to work on the enhancements.  The interior of the school received a facelift when the workers built a "Salem's Pride" board.  The exterior of the school has been made more "staff and student" friendly with several new picnic tables, along with several bags of gravel being distributed within the picnic area.  The school also received picnic tables for the recreational field area.  The students playground is also receiving a new half-court basketball court with a brand new basketball hoop.  The staff and students from Salem Elementary are extremely thankful for the work Lowe's has done for the school.
