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. If a student is not taking an exam than he/she will get to enjoy a late start. May 13 is a 2 1/2 hour delay and May 14, 15, 16, 20 and 21 are two hour delays. 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.
Get Involved, Value Everyone, Salisbury High School’s newest club, focuses on giving back to the community. Club members are running an Easter basket drive this spring for New Bethany Ministries.
To accomplish their goal of filling 50 or more Easter baskets, they are asking for donations from the Salisbury community.
Organizers are asking for baskets, fake grass, candy, gift cards to Target or Walmart and small toys for ages 18 months to 17 years old. All donations are greatly appreciated and due at Salisbury High School by April 12.
Salisbury High School’s No Place For Hate club is selling T-shirts for the annual Day Without Hate. Students interested in buying a T-shirt should fill out the form, which can be found in an email sent by Ms. DosSantos. All forms and money are due by April 1.
Salisbury High School juniors traveled to Cedar Crest College to visit the Pennsylvania Association for College Admission Counseling College Fair March 7. Students had the opportunity to learn about colleges throughout the country by talking to college representatives and viewing the information pamphlets the schools provided.
Students interested in signing up for the second semester of dual enrollment for the courses Honors Anatomy and Physiology, German IV or Spanish IV should make sure to turn in their registration form and money to Mrs. Moyer by Feb. 19.

SADD clubs, which support Students Against Destructive Decisions, across the Lehigh Valley have officially changed their name to STARs, Students Taking an Active Role.
While the club will no longer be sponsored by the Pennsylvania state SADD, the students are still able to participate in SADD activities. Instead, the Lehigh Valley Youth House will be working with STARs as the students take active roles in their schools and communities.
