Salem Southeast Elementary School held a fun-filled Color Run Saturday at Memorial Park. Students ran a 1.7 mile-course while getting doused with different colored powders. The event is the year’s biggest fundraiser for the school. With the help of students, staff, PTO, and the community, Southeast will use money raised for end-of-year incentives, field trips and playground equipment. Other school events: TODAY: 5th/6th Grade Spring Arts Concert, 6:30 p.m., at Southeast School. Anne Saltsman has been diligently working with the 5th grade band, 6th grade band, and Southeast Singers. They will be showcasing their musical growth and talents during their end-of-the-year concert. MAY 20, 21 and 22: Open Mic Morning at 9:30 a.m. at Southeast. These three mornings are set aside for a writing celebration for the students. Each morning parents are invited to sit with their student and have a homemade breakfast and listen to the students read a writing piece that they wrote during the school year. Each student then receives a printed booklet of all writings during the school year. MAY 24: JA in a Day, 9 a.m., at Southeast. Junior Achievement program partners with local community members and the school to provide economic and business lessons for the students. Community leaders and business owners serve as instructors and provide engaging and hands-on lessons to teach the students about their own community. (Salem News photos by J.D. Creer)
