Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Engineering, in conjunction with Rowan University will begin at SHS in Fall 2014. PLTW Engineering
is about applying engineering, science, math, and technology to solve
complex, open-ended problems in a real-world context. Students focus on
the process of defining and solving a problem, not getting the "right"
answer. They learn how to apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of
mind to make the world a better place through innovation. Learn more
about this program HERE.

SMS Pennant Project
The Salem Middle School Counseling Office has started the Pennant Project. School Counselors, Ms. Fialkow and Mr. Pszwaro, are emailing colleges and universities asking for their pennants so that they can be displayed in our school to expose our elementary school children to post high school education as early as possible. Hopefully, we can help lead the way for our young scholars to find themselves at many wonderful institutions. The response has been phenomenal. Soon the halls of Salem Middle School will be covered in pennants and posters.
If your student is currently registered with his/her resident district, complete the Notice of Intent to Participate Form, submit it to your resident district by December 2, 2013, and obtain a signed receipt acknowledging that you submitted the form. Keep the receipt for your records. By law, a resident district must be informed if a student intends to participate in the choice program.
