Boys and girls basketball games on RCN Channel 68

This past week, Salisbury students enjoyed a break from school. During this time, students were able to not only catch up on some much needed sleep, but they were also able to attend both the boys and girls basketball games. If you missed the games, you may still be able to view them on RCN Channel 68.

Now with a new year beginning, Salisbury students have a lot to look forward to. High school students will be able to participate in the annual Winter Dance and Social Jan. 13. The dance is a casual event where students can listen to music, win door prizes and hangout with friends. The event starts 7 p.m. so make sure to buy your tickets in advance. Guests are welcome with a signed permission slip.

On Jan. 19, Salisbury Middle School students have the opportunity to put their best foot forward at the annual Winter Semi-Formal starting 7 p.m. Then on Jan. 15, students will be able to enjoy another day off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Students will also be continuing to study and finish any missed assignments, as the end of the second marking period is fast approaching Jan. 19.
