Students at Salisbury High School have been busy planning for the annual fall blood drive to support the Miller-Keystone Blood Center, Bethlehem. However, unlike previous years, community members will be able to donate as well between the hours of 2:45 and 7 p.m. Nov. 14. Community members can make appointments online at www.GIVEaPINT.org by using the Sponsor Code #0490. Child care will be provided by members of National Honor Society at SHS during this time. All students and staff interested in donating can do so starting 12:30 p.m.. Come support the Miller Keystone Blood Center and SHS.
Fundraisers also have begun to support class activities. As always, class dues are due ASAP to class advisors. The senior class is selling Perkins pies. All orders are due Nov. 7. Contact a member of the Class of 2019 to order a pie.
Members of the junior class are selling Gertrude Hawk chocolate bars during November. The chocolate bars come in a variety of different flavors and are being sold individually by members of the Class of 2020. Contact a member of the junior class to buy a chocolate bar.
The yearbook club is holding a flash sale in November. All yearbooks are sold for the reduced price of $65. Payment should be taken to Room 2.
Members of the SHS Literary Club and Euphoria, the school literary magazine, visited Kutztown University Nov. 2 to listen to author Paul Acampora talk about his experiences as an author. They were then given time to ask questions before touring the campus. Overall, students had an excellent time learning more about Kutztown University and Acampora.
Congratulations to Josh Jose, Bradley Hnatow, Dylan Weber and Lucas Woods for earning second place in the Code Jam 2018 competition. This was the first time Salisbury students entered this contest. In Code Jam, students compete against 20 other teams to see who can create different lines of code the fastest.
Last week, students created awareness about drug prevention by participating in Red Ribbon Week. During this week, students across the country bring awareness to this cause. Salisbury students dressed up each day during the week. For example, one day students wore red so they could be “Red-y to live drug free,” while another day they wore crazy hats to “put a cap on drugs.”
Finally, the club No Place For Hate is promoting gratitude during November. Each day there is a different theme, which is on a calendar posted on the Salisbury social media pages. No Place For Hate is encouraging all community members to post on social media what they are grateful for using the hashtags, #shsnpfh and #shsisgrateful.
