Ends: November 30th for ALL Tracks.
What is Fun Pasta?
Fun Pasta is pasta shaped like the holidays, sports, collegiate team logos, and they also have Holiday themed Pasta great to give as a Holiday Gift!! Every sale helps supports SMS PTA and gets us closer to our goal!!

Registration is now open for the fall workouts and tryouts for the 2018 Salem Middle School Club Baseball teams!
The teams play in the Wake County Club Baseball League. Information about the league can be found at www.wakecountyclubbaseball.com .
All students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade are eligible to play.
There are two levels of play: The Junior Varsity division is open to 6th and 7th graders, and the Varsity division is open to 7th and 8th graders. 6th graders must play at the JV level, and 8th graders must play at the varsity level. 7th graders can play at either level, depending on ability.
We will conduct a series of workouts in mid October, followed by tryouts for the 2018 teams in late October. Official practice begins in February, and the season begins in March.
We will make accommodations for students that are unable to attend the tryouts, or for students who may compete on other Salem sports teams.
For information and registration, visit the club's website at salembaseball.webs.com.
