Attention 8th Grade Parents!
It's time to begin planning the celebration activities for our 8th graders’ last year at SMS! Our first planning meeting is at 6pm on Tuesday, October 3rd in the Media Center. Please join us if you’d like to be in the committee tasked with designing the 8th grade t-shirt, determining the class legacy gift, and planning the 8th grade dance and picnic. Questions? Contact Tracy Torrejon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you the parent of a budding artist?
If so, encourage your child to submit a design for the new Salem Middle School t-shirt. Contest rules and design guidelines are available in each homeroom and through the Student Council. Entries are due to the PTA Spiritwear Committee by October 27th and then the student body will vote on the top entries to choose a winner. Questions? Contact Tracy Torrejon at email@example.com or Christy Yochelson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
(Please make sure to read the Program Guide that's posted there as it has lots of information and contact info for the program director.)
