The National Honor Society Induction ceremony was held April 4 at Salisbury High School. Over 30 students were inducted into the Salisbury chapter of NHS. In order to be a part of NHS, students must demonstrate their qualifications through portraying the values of scholarship, leadership, service and character – the four pillars of NHS. Members of NHS complete 15 hours of community service a year, maintain a grade average of 93 and are available to peer tutor. Congratulations!
Last week students at Salisbury High School showed their school spirit during spring spirit week.
On March 19 and 20, students showed their school spirit by participating in pajama day and 1990s day. Due to the snowstorm, spirit week was cut short and students were unable to participate in Hawaiian shirt day or dress like a teacher day. However, spirit week continued this week, ending today with a pep rally.
Members of Salisbury High School’s Literary Club and Key Club traveled to both elementary schools to read books to the students to kick off their annual Cops ‘n’ Kids event March 2 and 5.
Every year students from both elementary schools collect books to donate to Cops ‘n’ Kids. Cops ‘n’ Kids collects books throughout the Lehigh Valley to provide books to children in need. If you have any gently used children’s books, a donation at one of the elementary schools to support Cops ‘n’ Kids would be greatly appreciated.

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.
On Dec. 16 members of the Key Club at Salisbury High School hosted a holiday party for children from both Harry S Truman and Western Salisbury elementary schools.
The party featured activities for the children to participate in while their family shopped for holiday gifts. These activities included playing games in the gym and creating Christmas tree, Santa Claus and reindeer crafts.
With the holidays fast approaching, students are preparing for the final days of school before winter break.
The blood drive, which was postponed due to the two-hour delay Dec. 14, is tentatively moved to Dec. 21. Anyone who is 16 or older with parental permission may have the opportunity to donate.
Both Salisbury High School Student Government Association and Key Club are collecting items in the spirit of giving.

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.
