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.
Be The Match is a program which allows people who are 18 years old or older to sign up for the opportunity to save a person’s life by donating bone marrow.
For Sien Bauman and Payton Stauffer’s Challenge Based Learning Project, they created an online donation with the Be The Match program to allow people in our community to sign up for the potential to save someone’s life.

Students from Salisbury High School traveled to Saucon Valley High School to compete against Pennridge High School in their final debate of the year.
SHS was on the affirmative team, while Pennridge High School was on the negative team, for this year’s resolve, “The United States should implement a DNA database for all criminal suspects.” Each team is required to give two speeches, question the other team two times and write and present one rebuttal. The individual debate teams can have a maximum of four members; however, they can have less than four members.

Salisbury High School students have been busy recently with many exciting activities including the Student Government Advisory dodgeball tournament, Scholastic Scrimmage and the No Place For Hate shirt sale.
SGA hosted the dodgeball tournament March 23. SGA is a group that organizes events for students at the high school. The dodgeball tournament was an exciting event to raise money to support the SGA. Congratulations to the Average Joe’s, who won this year’s trophy.
