STUDENT OF THE WEEK Kristen DeMelfy

Wednesday, November 7, 2012 by EMILY THIEL Special to The Press in School

Q. What grade are you in?

A. I am in 12th grade at Salisbury High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite subject is art, because I've loved to draw ever since I was little. Another reason it's my favorite is it lets you express yourself, and it can literally be anything you want it to be. Without art, I think the world would be a pretty bland place. That's why I love to be creative at every opportunity I get, and spice things up with art.

Q. Have you received any special awards or recognition?

A. I am in National Honor Society.

Happy Halloween

BOO! and Happy Halloween from your friends at The Press.

One of my favorite ways to celebrate the spooky autumn holiday is to watch the 1978 John Carpenter film, "Halloween." In the chilling film, Jamie Lee Curtis stars as high schooler Laurie Strode who faces the terror of Michael Myers. But as Halloween is here, so is the end of October and the end of the first marking period for both the high school and middle school. Retests of the PSSA for seniors run to the end of the week.
