Team will spread holiday cheer and wrap gifts Dec. 9 and 16

Salisbury High School’s Student Government Advisory held a food drive for the holidays and were successful in donating over 1000 items to the Allentown Ecumenical Food Bank.

SGA will hold a blood drive Dec. 14. If you are 16 years or older and either a student or staff member at the high school, come donate blood. There will be a raffle for those who donate for a pair of Phantoms tickets and two Phantoms shirts.

Students from SHS are going to see the movie “CoCo” Dec. 9 sponsored by the Spanish teachers. “CoCo” is about a young boy named Miguel’s dream to become a musician like Ernesto de la Cruz, but he has to face the challenge of his family’s ban of music. He is transported to the Land of the Dead, where he learns his family’s history.
