Salem School collecting history for 100-year celebration

old-salem-school-photoIf you are interested in the history of Salem School, maybe even have some old photos or info to share, you may be interested in this announcement about the school upcoming 100th year anniversary:

In the late 1800s, children in Salem attended a 2-room wooden building known as Salem Center School. In 1916, a 4-room brick building replaced the wooden structure. The enrollment was less than 100 pupils. The walls of the 1916 building still stand today and continue to anchor the many halls and rooftops of the present day building that securely houses over 950 students. As we prepare for a 100-year anniversary celebration on April 24, 2016, from 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M., we would appreciate the community’s assistance in gathering items of interest. For example, do you or any of your relatives have old (Salem School or town related) photos from many years past? We are especially interested in pictures and anecdotal information from 1900 to about 1970. A meeting will be held on Thursday, February 4, from 4 to 6 p.m. in Salem’s middle school library. Individuals can share information about the past and bring in photos to share. Please enter on the AH side of the building. If you are not able to attend the meeting, but have information to share, please contact Eileen Bruton, principal, at 262-843-2356, ext. 411.
