What We Do

It seems like the PTA is always having a fundraiser!!! Where does that money go???

Good question!  The PTA supports special initiatives as well as many annual activties and events in order to strengthen our school.   In recent years, the PTA has invested in several special projects including contributing $15,000 towards school re-painting, made major additions to BOTH playgrounds($50,000), and have provided over $10,000 towards improvements, books and supplies for the Media Center and Reading Room.

For the 2017-18 school year, the PTA Spotlight Programs will be:

  • Literacy
  • Community Building

Additionally, below are some examples of other types of support the PTA provides for the Salem ES community throughout the year:

 Early Release Staff Luncheons &/or Snacks
