New Salem Elementary School Welcomes Principals from Argentina
A special reception was hosted by the staff of New Salem Elementary School to welcome our visiting principals from Argentina after school on Monday, October 15, 2012. Special guests included Mayor Bobby Kilgore, Mr. Gustavo Arevalo, Mr. Hawkins' parents (Rev. & Mrs. Clyde Hawkins) and members of the New Salem PTO Board. Mayor Kilgore welcomed the principals on behalf of the City of Monroe.
A small group of student volunteers performed a song in Spanish for all in attendance. The Argentine principals will be visiting Union County through November 1, 2012 to gain knowledge of the educational practices being used in schools across the district as well as experience American culture.
