With the less than a week left until homecoming, Salisbury High School is putting the final touches on decorations and practicing man dances.
Throughout this week, students have shown their school spirit, by participating in daily themes. These themes included, pajama day, 80s day, U.S.A. day, Hawaiian day and blue and white day.
As September was Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Salisbury High School Football team decided to join the Touchdowns Against Cancer program, along with many other schools across the country, to raise money to support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
The team asked community members to make a pledge to support this cause. Community members could either place a pledge on each touchdown scored between Sept. 8 through 30 or donate a flat rate.
All donations are tax deductible.
At the end of the campaign, all money raised from the pledges will be donated.
Parents, guardians and students attended a dual enrollment information meeting Sept. 20 at Salibury High School.
Dual enrollment allows students at SHS to receive college credit from Seton Hall for courses they are already taking at the high school. These courses include languages, electives and select core classes. A complete list was provided to students, parents and guardians.
Salisbury High School has been very busy the last few weeks.
Students have begun to plan for Homecoming. Each class has chosen their theme and has begun to prepare decorations. Before long, the yearly man dance will begin to be choreographed.
Mark your calendars for the annual Homecoming Parade. This year’s parade will begin 5:30 p.m Oct. 12, starting at Harry S Truman Elementary School and ending in the SHS stadium. All interested community members should come out to view the parade and then join SHS as they attempt to beat the Slaters at this year’s Homecoming game.
After a short and fun-filled summer, Salisbury High School began school Aug. 21. Over the past two weeks, students have had the opportunity to meet teachers and begin club meetings again.
Fall sports have begun for the 2018-2019 season. The stadium is often packed on weekdays and weekends. Check the sports schedule to see when you can come support the Falcons.

Quickly changing his degree, he decided to become a psychologist. He received his doctorate in clinical psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
