New Salem Trades Showcase

May 15, 2023

On May 3, New Salem Elementary's first and second graders participated in Trades Showcase Day. Six Spring Grove Area High School students talked with the elementary students about their STEM classes and future trade careers. The high school students read a book about a trade, brought "tools" of their trade to show the students, and handed out STEM-themed coloring pages.

It was a wonderful way to showcase trades careers to the elementary students and the future classes they could take. We're not sure who had more fun, the high school students or the first and second graders!

Thank you, school counselors, Jennifer Dugan and Christopher Fake, for organizing this fun event, and to the following SGAHS students for leading the activities:

  • Cole McCoury
  • Levi Highlands
  • Gary Pownell 
  • Grace Ellis 
  • Evan Wildasin 
  • Austin Ural
