Salem Lutheran School provides many activities for students to get involved in. Whether your child is interested in academic clubs or athletics, they will find a way to get involved and grow academically, spiritually, and socially at Salem. As our children grow and move into upper grades, they have more opportunities to participate in additional activities and take on more responsibilities in the school community.
At Salem, we want to meet the interests of our students outside of the standard offerings. We offer a variety of programming such as Soccer Shots (preschool), Music and Movement (preschool), Mad Science (K-6), and Crayola Imagine Arts Academy (K-6). We are adding more opportunities based on an interest survey given to our students. This spring, we are offering a Photography Class. Starting in the fall of 2023, we will offer Cooking Classes, Chess Club, and will continue Photography.
Every Wednesday afternoon at Salem, a group of students, staff, and faculty gather in Salem Chapel for a time of praise and worship. This weekly event is an essential part of the life of the school, providing a time for everyone to come together and focus on God. The chapel is filled with the sounds of hymns and prayers, and the atmosphere is one of joy and peace. As part of Chapel, students and staff have Faith Families. Once a month, groups of Pre-K through 8th graders meet to share in the joy of Jesus and focus on our annual school theme.
Salem Band Program
This program provides an excellent opportunity for children in grades 5-8 to learn and perform music while also being a part of a group. Students have the opportunity to play wind and percussion instruments. Twice a year, they perform at Lutheran South. The band performs at school events such as Veterans Day, the school musical and a spring concert. The band instructor comes to us from Lutheran South and select students are invited to play with the Lutheran South Junior Winds.
This group is open to all students in grades 5-8 and meets weekly after school. The goal of the Academic Team is to provide an opportunity for students to compete in academic competitions against other schools. In addition to promoting academic excellence, the Academic Team also fosters teamwork and good sportsmanship.
This is a program where students help to keep their classmates safe. Patrol members are responsible for helping to direct traffic at the start of the school day and dismissal time. The Safety Patrol program is an excellent way for students to take on additional responsibility and leadership roles. It also helps to develop a sense of community and cooperation among the students.
Student Council allows students to develop leadership skills and serve their school community. Student Council members plan and execute several service projects yearly, such as food and toy drives. They also take on active roles in school events, such as Red Ribbon Week activities, National Day of Prayer, and other student council-sponsored events
