Student Life Updates

This post is an update to the general happenings in the student life at Salem Christian School.  We hope that the life of a student at Salem Christian School demonstrates how we are one of the best Lehigh Valley Christian schools.


February 15, 2018

  • Salem Spirit Week, organized by Student Council, was a blast: daily dress themes, Salem fun facts, riddles, banner decorating, and more! Congratulations to the winners of the overall competition:
  • In the lower elementary, Kindergarten and 1st Grade tied(!) in the vote for the Banner Contest title, but 2nd Grade, powered by its win in the Best Salem Spirit Contest, took the overall championship.
  • In remarkable come-from-behind fashion, the 4th Grade upset the 5th Grade by a mere 9.29 points–roughly the equivalent of one student participating on one day. 5th Grade won the Banner Contest vote, but that was not quite enough to hold off the 4th Grade’s late charge, keyed by its victory in the Best Salem Spirit Contest.
  • The 6th Grade and the 8th Grade split the Best Salem Spirit Contest, but they could not keep pace with the 7th Grade, which ran away with the middle school title thanks to two riddle wins and the Banner Contest title. (An eagle flying on the road to victory. Brilliant.)
  • And in the high school, the Class of 2018 in its last go-’round would not be denied a Spirit Week Championship; a strong showing in the riddle competition, a victory in the Best Salem Spirit Contest, and a shockingly-runaway victory in the Banner Contest secured the seniors their long-sought second Spirit Week title.

Great Salem Spirit, everybody! Thanks for participating!

Missions Day XIII (the high school’s Winter Missions Day) is coming next Thursday, February 22! Trip permission forms were distributed today. Looking forward to another opportunity to serve alongside ministries around the region as they work to reach their communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ!

Juniors and seniors: If needed, note that late registration for the March 10 SAT is open through February 28. Two other SAT dates remain for this school year: May 5 and June 2.

Come on out to the games and show your Salem spirit in honor of the SCS Class of 2018! And while you’re at it, don’t forget to cast your vote in the Salem Spirit Banner Contest! Go Eagles!

January 4, 2018

On December 22, the final day of school before Christmas, the entire Salem family took part in the all-school Christmas Chapel, a Christmas-spirited time of worship organized around cross-grade “buddyships.” An incredible encouragement to see the entire school relishing the opportunity to mix together for a time of fun, caroling, and reflection! The hour was truly a window to what makes Salem a special place.
This Friday is the First Friday of January: combined HS/MS Chapel, casual dress, and a bit of randomness to enliven the day!
Juniors, stay tuned for detailed information about the upcoming college visits planned for you: a day trip to Cairn University (January 31) and the 4.5-day College Tour (February 26 to March 2).
January 13 is the evening when Salem vocalists will be performing the national anthem at the Lehigh Valley Phantoms game. Hope to see you amid the Salem faces at the game!

December 21, 2017

Christmas Spirit Week 2017, presented by Student Council, is in full swing! Candy Cane Day, Whiteout Day, and Christmas Sock Day have passed, but there’s still time to get in on the festivities: Thursday is Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, and Friday is Red & Green Day! Thanks to Student Council for organizing the daily dress themes and the other festive happenings of this last week of school before Christmas!


November 9, 2017

November is a busy month for the members of the high school’s Praise Team: Last week, they led an entire First Friday Chapel (a reflection on the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation); this week, they led worship at Elementary School Chapel (something the team does once per month); next week, they are scheduled to lead worship for the opening ceremonies of the ACSI Regional Spelling Bee hosted by SCS–and these events are in addition to their efforts toward the team’s regular gigs, High School Chapel and Middle School Chapel! We so appreciate these students’ heart for pointing the Salem family (and beyond) to our great God!
The Student Council thanks all those who came out for the recent events it hosted, Game Night (MS, October 27) and The Salem Games (HS, November 3). Beyond the prodigious amount of fun that was had, the events also served to raise 53 pounds of non-perishable food items, which will be donated to Everlasting Life Ministries of Allentown. Stay tuned for details on other Student Council-hosted events coming this winter and this spring: Next time around, don’t miss out on the fun!
Seniors, remember that, if needed, late registration for the December 2 SAT runs through November 21. Note that the next SAT date is March 10

October 12, 2017
On its Fall Missions Day last Friday, the high school served on-site with seven regional ministries, while the Puppet PALS team traveled to conduct ministry of its own. A wonderful day of service alongside gospel-centered ministries in our community. Thank you to all who work to provide these opportunities for our students!
On Wednesday, SCS’s sophomores and juniors took the PSAT. Families will be alerted when score reports become available. All SCS 8th and 9th graders will be taking the PSAT in April; more information to come to those students’ families as the test date approaches.
Friday is the “First” Friday of October! Enjoy wearing jeans and taking part in some out-of-the-ordinary festivities!

September 8, 2018

This week marks the first “First” Friday of the school year! Each month, the first Friday on which all three grade levels are present in school is a “First” Friday. (On September 1, the high school was away on its Advance, and the middle school was taking part in Challenge–and so the “First” Friday for September falls to the 8th.) Salem tradition has long held that the first Friday of each month is a casual dress day. This year, however, we’re stepping things up a level. “First” Friday means three things: [1] The high school and middle school enjoy the energy of worshiping together in a combined community-focused Chapel; [2] as a school, we spice up life a bit by celebrating a “holiday” that falls on or near our “First” Friday date; and [3] the day is a casual dress day for all! Looking forward to observing these unique days as a Salem family through the year!

 

High school, the first of our three Missions Days is coming on October 6. More information will be distributed the week of September 18, but mark your calendar now for one of our impactful days dedicated to putting faith into action!

 

Seniors, remember that this Friday, September 8, is the registration deadline for the October 7 SAT. (The next SAT test date is November 4. Late registration for the October 7 SAT will remain open through September 27.)

The month of December is an exciting time around Salem!  Already since the Thanksgiving break, our students have participated in the all-school Christmas music program, supported an inner-city ministry through a gift-giving program, competed in the first games of the basketball season, and enjoyed a Christmas performance by the Puppet PALS.  Check out what is to come in just the few school days that remain before the Christmas break:

  • The middle school will sing Christmas carols at two local nursing homes.
  • Elementary students will have an opportunity to shop ’til they drop at the Salem Christmas Store.
  • Salem vocalists will perform the national anthem at a Lehigh Valley Phantoms game.
  • The high school will enjoy its first-ever Christmas Spirit Week, organized by its Student Council.
  • The entire school will gather for the first pep rally of the year, in support of the first (nearly) full evening of home basketball games.
  • The elementary school will travel to lands far and wide through its annual Christmas Around the World festivities.

What a month!

Seniors and juniors, remember that this coming Wednesday, the 21st, is the registration deadline for the January 21 SAT.

 

December 15, 2016

Last week, several of our high schoolers attended the ACSI High School Leadership Conference.  This year’s theme was “re:Purpose”, which challenged students to utilize their God-given abilities and opportunities in living with intentionality “for the life of the world.”

 

November 18 was the high school’s annual Thanksgiving Chapel, a time of corporate thanks giving which this year was followed by a “family” Thanksgiving (break)feast.

 

Seniors and juniors, remember that December 21 is the registration deadline for the January 21 SAT.

 

PSAT score reports will be released by the College Board on December 12; those students who took the test back in October will receive information on how to access and interpret their reports at that time.

 

November 22, 2016

Parents and friends of Salem, feel free stop in and worship with our high school or middle school in one of their Chapels! Both take place on Friday mornings; HS Chapel begins at 8:40, and MS Chapel at 11:20. Know that you are welcome to take part in the centerpiece of our week!

Seniors and juniors: Remember that the deadline to register for the December 3 SAT is Friday, November 3. (Late registration continues through November 22, albeit at an increased cost.)

Friday evening, the High School Council of Student Representatives hosted Middle School Game Night! Students from grades 6-8 enjoyed jailball, gaga, indoor soccer, video games, dodgebasket, board games, knockout, and a variety of tournaments. And via the attendees the CSR collected a significant pile of food to be donated to a local food bank ministry. Friday was a great night for all; middle schoolers, you won’t want to miss the next MS Game Night!

High school: Saturday, November 12, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. Mark your calendar now for The Salem Games, an extravaganza of competition you don’t want to miss. Trust us: You want in.

Several of our middle school students spent Thursday at the ACSI Middle School Leadership Conference, an experience that “guides students through a biblical lens to examine their lives, expand their vision, and explore their possibilities for personal advancement and achievement.” We thank ACSI for producing well-organized events like this one that provide our students opportunities to cultivate their God-given abilities and interact with students from other Christ-centered schools.

October 6, 2016

Despite a bit of wet weather, the high school’s Fall Missions Day remained an exciting opportunity for our students to put their faith into action.  For the day, Salem students served alongside eight different ministries that, while markedly different from one another, share one central aim: to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Two additional HS Missions Days are coming on February 23 and May 12.

The high school Council of Student Representatives will be hosting a game night for the SCS Middle School the evening of October 28.  Students in grades 6-8, mark your calendars!

The PSAT will be administered at SCS on October 19.  This year, 10th graders are required to take the test; 11th graders are highly encouraged to take the test, but for them it is optional.  10th graders are registered automatically and at no additional cost; 11th graders may register by speaking with Mr. Ference or with Mr. Krage and paying a $20.00 registration fee.  (Also new this year on the PSAT front: All 9th and 8th graders will be taking the PSAT later in the school year.  More information to come to those students’ families as the test date approaches.)

Juniors and Seniors, don’t forget that October 7 (Friday) is the deadline to register for the November 5 SAT.  (Late registration continues through October 25, albeit at a higher cost.)  Registration for the December 3 SAT is open through November 3.

 

September 29, 2016

An initiative for this year and future years is to be sure infuse prayer more often and purposefully into our school life. And, this week is a great week to highlight our students and how they are praying.

This final week of September has been a busy one in the life of Salem. In addition to classes and sports seasons that are moving at full steam, the week witnessed the Salem edition of See You At The Pole, planning sessions for both the Spring Musical and the new Debate Club, and the high school’s Fall Missions Day. Thanks to all those who made and are making these opportunities possible for our students. (Special shout-outs to the student organizers of SYATP and to the many individuals who play a part in making our Missions Days happen.)

Considering this week includes the National Day of Prayer, the elementary gathered today with the high school students who prayed with them and sang a worship song.
Wednesday was See You At The Pole, the global student-organized prayer event.  The high school’s Student Council prepared two at-Salem events–a before-school gathering (7:45 a.m.) for those able/interested and a Homeroom gathering for the entire high school and middle school–where students joined together to pray for their school, neighborhood schools, friends, families, churches, communities, and more.

Reminder: Mission day is Friday, September 30. The entire High School will be gone to serve the community in the ministry partners we have developed.

Plans are coming together for the ACSI Regional Spelling Bee for grades 5-8, which this year will be hosted by a certain school located on Salem Bible Church Road outside Macungie.  Yes: On November 17, students from across eastern PA (and possibly beyond) will descend on Salem to compete (c-o-m-p-e-t-e, compete).  We’re looking to the event, which is an exciting opportunity not only for our 5th-8th graders, but also for our school!

For high school students, there will be a new club starting this year: A debate club!
Next week on Tuesday, September 27th, there will be an informational meeting for any students that may be interested in joining the club. There is no commitment made with attending this meeting; it is simply an opportunity to find out more about this exciting new group

Athletic Updates

This page is dedicated to keep you informed of what is happening in the athletic department at Salem Christian School. Our athletic program is a strong part of our pursuit to be the best Christian school in the Lehigh Valley.


April 12, 2018

Finally! The weather turned enough so that one of our teams could play. The varsity boy’s baseball team welcomed Shenandoah Valley for our home opener and while the results were not what we wanted it was good to see our team play. Thursday soccer will finally kick off with games against Upper Bucks, while on Friday baseball plays Valley Forge and soccer travels to Coventry.
The athletic department would like to recognize Coach Green for his years of service as the head coach of the boys’ varsity team. Coach Green put a lot of time and effort into making our boys team a respected District 11 team including capturing our first ever district playoff win in basketball. He did a great job on representing Salem and more importantly Jesus Christ. Coach Green is resigning and will be missed.
We are still in need of a groundskeeper for baseball and a middle school boy’s soccer coach for this fall. Salem is also looking for a varsity boys head coach. If you or someone you know can help out please let us know. Come on out and make some noise for your Salem Eagles.

Last week the varsity boys traveled to Brandywine for their first night game of the season, but while playing hard came up short. On Saturday the volleyball teams traveled to Berks Christian and in the end it was a clean sweep for Salem. Tuesday saw a rematch with Lehigh and LCA.

The varsity teams won handily including our first sweep over Lehigh in soccer in over five years.

Saturday afternoon saw a decent crowd come out to cheer on your Salem Eagles as they clashed with two key District 11 opponents. The girls played hard and held their own against Nativity in what amounted to a rematch of last year’s playoffs. In the end Nativity was able to pull away but it was an exciting match, which could have used some more noise from our fans. The boys were able to hang with Weatherly for a half but ran out of steam in losing.
Monday the soccer teams were on the road but lost to Quakertown Christian and Kings Academy. Tuesday brought in Concord for our volleyball teams and the Minutemen went home in a sweep by both teams. Soccer took on Calvary for middle school but again lack of numbers played a factor as they lost. The varsity boys recorded their first win by defeating TEACH.
Thursday Faith of Fairless Hills takes on our varsity soccer team and on Friday all four teams travel to Valley Forge. Next week bring road games at Coventry, West Chester Christian, Faith Christian Roseto and Fairview Christian.
