On Nov. 11, in 25 degree weather, members of both Pack and Troop 5 and their families set out to collect Scouting For Food donations from local community members.
The previous week the Scouts placed door hangers on homes in the hopes of collecting food for the Everlasting Life Ministries located at the New Bethany Evangelical Congregational Church in Allentown. On Nov. 11, while driving out through the community, Scouts looked at doorsteps in the hopes of finding bags full of nonperishable items to donate to the church.
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.

Last week was Homecoming. Seniors won the decoration contest at this year’s pep rally with the theme of Dr Seuss’s “Oh the Places You’ll Go.” Juniors won both the spirit contest and the man dance competition. Congratulations to the juniors and seniors.
Oct. 13 was the football game where the Falcons competed against the Northern Lehigh Bulldogs. Congratulations to the Falcons, who won the game. Finally to end the Homecoming season, students were able to show off their dance moves at this year’s Homecoming dance held Oct. 14.
With the beginning of October, students have caught Homecoming fever.
Students are preparing for the day’s events in different ways. Choreographers and dancers have been practicing to produce a “man dance.” Artists are putting the finishing touches on their Homecoming decorations. As a reminder, the Homecoming game is Oct. 13 and the dance is Oct. 14.
Students are returning to the routine of high school. With classes in session for almost three weeks now, it won’t be long before student activities begin again.
Model UN, a club where students learn how the United Nations is run and have the opportunity to perform mock trials, began Sept. 8. Keep an eye out for the debate team, a group of students who research and debate topics that relate to what is happening in the world today, as they will be beginning their season shortly.
With the end of summer fast approaching, students are finishing their last bit of summer homework and savoring the final few days of summer.
Since students leave the end of the school year knowing their schedules for the following year and receive the official schedule two weeks before school starts, students are only waiting for one thing – their laptops.
Salisbury High School students had their last day of school June 12. As I participated in some of the final activities for the year, I was able to reflect on my first year at SHS.
When I first walked in the doors for orientation, like everyone else, I was afraid I would get lost. This however, I soon learned would never happen, because everyone who goes to or has been to Salisbury knows, it’s just a square.
