A combined effort for Salem schools

To the editor:

Salem has a tradition that continues to this day to provide quality education, a mission that is reflected within everyone who ensures every child has an opportunity to become our leaders for the next generation. And it is a tradition that extends not only to the best and the brightest teachers for our children, it extends to all support staff, such as custodians, secretaries, paraprofessionals, administration, technology, special education, the Parent Information Center and, most importantly, parents. As a community, we all work as one to contribute toward the best public education for each and every child.

A contribution that includes preparation by all before the first classroom bell rings and continues well after the last classroom bell rings. In order to get the classroom and the school ready for lessons, each individual works as part of a team to do their job, including Salem parents and community members through fundraising, volunteering and being a part of the child’s educational experience. It is a combined effort that traditionally ensures the best public education for our children and for our future.
