Parent Information

Mrs. Fletcher's 2nd grade class has been exploring various Asian cultures through literature, music and art. Students are gaining an appreciation for diverse cultures by learning about various cultural traditions and experiences. In class students read, Yoko, by Rosemary Wells which is a great book about acceptance and friendship. Students also painted Cherry Blossom trees which were mentioned in the story. They discussed the theme and summarized the story using the writing process. Finally, they enjoyed some "sushi" like Yoko!

5th Grade Muddy Sneakers

5th grade students participate in the Muddy Sneakers program.

Saluda Elementary students participated in an art show on Saturday, June 29, celebrating Saluda's sister city, Carunchio, Italy. The artwork of Saluda Elementary students and Carunchio's students was displayed along with an artist from Carunchio and local artists at the Saluda Center.

As part of National Bike Safety Month, Saluda Elementary School, Hincapie Sports in Greenville, SC and Adventure Cycles in Saluda, NC collaborated to increase cycling safety for Saluda School students. With a generous donation from Hincapie Sports given in appreciation for the use of the Saluda School field for a rest stop during the annual Gran Fondo Hincapie (held each year on the third Saturday in October), Chris Young of Adventure Cycles facilitated the purchase of 12 Kali Protectives bicycle helmets at cost. The helmets were given to deserving students whose names were drawn from a hat. Three first grade students received their helmets during PE on May 31st. 
More information about bicycling and bike safety can be found at The League of American Bicyclists; about Adventure Cycles at; about Hincapie Sports and Gran Fondo Hincapie at; and Kali Protectives helmets at In North Carolina, bicyclists and bicycle passengers less than 16 years old must wear safety helmets while riding on public roads. However, all bicyclists are encouraged to wear a helmet whenever on a bicycle.
