SkillsUSA Salem member Jacob Attarian created a SkillsUSA informational pamphlet explaining what a CTSO-Career & Technical Student Organization is and why it is important to join SkillsUSA at Salem High School. Jacob also included the dates and times for SkillsUSA meetings, as well as a directory of Salem Officers and Advisors. Jacob, along with fellow committee members Joshua Attarian, Chris Nikitas, Anthony Morganelli, and Mrs. Terry Berube-Advisor, made announcements in the cafeteria and distributed the pamphlets to the students at all four lunches on Wednesday, February 10, 2016. Pictured is a photo of Jacob Attarian, wearing his purple SkillsUSA NH Leadership T-shirt (donated by Gemini Electric), proudly holding his creation. Jacob is currently a junior and enrolled in both the Marketing and the CSMA-Computer Software Media Applications programs at Salem’s CTE Center.

Registration is conducted on an ongoing basis until it is full. At the time of registration there is a $100.00 non-refundable registration fee in order to hold your spot. If a child is enrolled in the preschool for one year he/she is automatically enrolled the following year if the parent/s chooses to do so. A sibling also has automatic enrollment. Applications are accepted until capacity has been reached. All attempts are made to meet the needs of children and their families. The preschool does maintain a dated waiting list and you will be notified if an opening occurs, if you ask to be kept on the list.
The Salem Preschool is a program that respects the facts that all children have their own rate of development. Each child is viewed as a total being with physical, social, emotional and cognitive characteristics working together and supporting each other. Since the young child acquires skills when he or she is developmentally ready to do so and not on a specific continuum, skills are presented through a variety of activities. When a skill is acquired it is continually reinforced while new skills are being presented. It is our goals to take a child from the level at which he or she enters the program and move them forward with developmentally appropriate experiences.
Student teachers assisting in the preschool classroom are Career and Technical Education students enrolled in the Teacher Preparation course. These students are under the direct supervision of the preschool instructor.

Students learn about modern manufacturing in Salem

That was just one of the messages Salem High School students heard as they toured Data Electronic Devices on Monday morning as part of Manufacturing Week.
Data Electronic Devices president Victor Giglio reiterated Metzemaekers’ message, noting that his company has employees whose educational experience ranges from GEDs to multiple master’s degrees.
With the technology revolution of the past several decades, Giglio said that manufacturing in this country is focused on computers and the high-tech industry and has a variety of positions available for a wide variety of talented employees.
“Not everyone is college-bound,” he said. “I didn’t graduate from college, but the one thing I had was the ambition to be better, and that has to come from within. You need to try to improve yourself every single day.”
“We brought a group of students last year, and the kids are still talking about the jobs they saw,” Pelletier said. “They have assembly, soldering, management; it’s a nice assortment.”
