Students at Salisbury High School are busy preparing for Homecoming.
Each grade has been spending the past few weeks creating decorations and choreographing man dances for the annual Homecoming pep rally. Students also learned the Salisbury High School Alma Mater, which will be sung by the student section after Friday night’s game.
To show their school spirit throughout the week, SHS students and faculty have been dressing up based on daily themes including pajama day, twin day, USA day, Hawaiian day and Blue and White day.
Bishop the Rev. Dr. Samuel R. Zeiser visits Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church of Eastern Salisbury
Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church of Eastern Salisbury celebrated its 260th anniversary recently. In order to celebrate this occasion, the church welcomed Bishop the Rev. Dr. Samuel R. Zeiser, to preach.
Zeiser was ordained in 1979 and became bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod in 2008. When visiting smaller congregations, like the Jerusalem Church of Eastern Salisbury, Zeiser explained he has the same goals for these churches as he does for all churches.
Salisbury Township School District is celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month. Students and community members are encouraged to participate by posting photos on social media according to the daily hashtags. Everytime you post, include the #STSDHHM and the daily hashtag. Today’s hashtag is #Tengo (I have).
On June 1, the Jerusalem Lutheran Church of Eastern Salisbury held an event to commemorate the veterans and military personnel within the community. This is the second time the church has held this event. Throughout the afternoon, visitors had the opportunity to hear the stories and learn about the service of local military members. The event provided a time for community members to enjoy food and fellowship and show their appreciation of what these veterans have sacrificed.
Salisbury students are all excitedly looking forward to the last day of school.
Salisbury High School students will have a 12:15 p.m. dismissal June 12 and a 10:30 a.m. dismissal June 13. As the year comes to a close, I think that it is time to reflect upon what SHS students have accomplished throughout this year.
Salisbury students have been active in many different clubs.
Students Against Destructive Decisions became Students Taking Active Roles, which allowed the members to include more topics to plan more activities.
The Salisbury High School AEVIDUM club encouraged students to wear yellow May 16 to promote Stopping the Stigma and creating a Community of Care. The goal of this club is to make sure everyone at SHS feels supported. In order to promote the idea of “We’ve got your back,” the club passed out yellow smiley face stickers and wrote the name of every student and staff at SHS on paper hands, which were displayed in SHS’s hallways. Students interested in joining AEVIDUM should email Mrs. Legath.
The spring Keystone Exams begin May 13. Salisbury High School students received a paper in their homerooms May 2 and should refer to it to see when they will have to take their exams.

There are some advanced placements tests being given during the Keystones window, so students who are taking these exams should report to school at the normal time. Make sure to check your schedule.
