As the school year comes to a close, students excitedly wait for the final day of school when summer vacation will officially begin. Reflecting on the previous year, it seems Salisbury students have been busy academically and active in many different extracurricular activities.
During the week of May 14 in preparation for the prom, students participated in a prom spirit week. Each day had a different theme. The week’s themes included black out day, Hawaiian day, meme/character day, 80s day and color day. Students showed their school spirit by dressing up for each of the different days.
On April 27, students at Salisbury High School celebrated a Day Without Hate.
The No Place For Hate club, which promotes kindness throughout the school through many different activities, planned a day for students where kindness was shown throughout the building.
The Salisbury High School prom will be held May 19 at DeSales University.
Students in need of an affordable dress or suit have to look no further as SHS has opened its prom boutique.
For students who are facing financial hardships, the prom boutique includes many gently used outfits perfect for prom.
The dresses come in a variety of styles and many of them have either only been worn once or are brand new. There are also new suits and ties that come in many different colors.
Chosen attire will be dry cleaned before prom.
The Salisbury community is invited to the District Art Show at Salisbury High School May 9. Students’ artwork from grades kindergarten through 12th will be displayed throughout the auxiliary gym and includes art demonstrations throughout the night. Admission is free, although donations for the Scott Atiyeh Memorial Scholarship, which supports students who plan to pursue art in college, are greatly appreciated. Come to the high school between 5 and 8 p.m. to see Salisbury students’ artwork.
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.
Students in Spanish three and four are celebrating Valentine’s Day with secret valentines.
Every day, students brought in secret gifts, such as a piece of gum or a nickel, for their valentine. Then today, Feb. 14, students will bring a gift, such as a candy bar, to class where students will participate in a Valentine’s Day-themed activity.
Student Government Association and Key Club members are collecting LEGO® bricks to donate to the Lehigh Valley’s Children’s Center.
Salisbury High School’s new literary magazine, Euphoria, accepted student submissions for a contest through Jan. 30. All students who participated received a prize and the chance to be printed in Euphoria. Submissions included poetry, short stories, artwork and photography. The group hopes to print the magazine soon so members of the community will be able to view the students’ creative works.
