Fall Semester 2018 Elementary School Workshops

Sponsored by the Salem City Schools Gifted Department

Dear Parents:

Salem City gifted department is pleased to announce our field trip opportunities this fall. Look for the official mailing about these opportunities to come to your home by Monday, Sept. 17th. Note the dates and times, and see if any of them might be of interest to your child. Registration is required by Friday, Sept. 28.

Option #1:   Thursday, October 4, 2018
Meet at the Salem Museum at 5:45 pm.

Join us for the Ghost Walk in East Hill Cemetery sponsored by the Salem Museum.  Learn about Salem’s history by visiting several of the “dearly departed.” Wear good walking shoes. Parents will need to provide transportation to and from this activity.  The museum is located at 801 E. Main St., next to Longwood Park.  Fun and educational… not scary!

Option #2:  Saturday, October 20, 2018
Meet us at G.W.Carver Elem. at 9:00 am

Let’s go to the Hokie BugFest at Squires Student Center at VA Tech! This day-long event sponsored by VA Tech’s Department of Entomology will allow you to see more bugs than you’ve ever seen in one place… maybe even more than you ever wanted to see!    Please bring $10 for lunch.  The Salem City school bus will return to G.W. Carver School at 3 pm.
