Church hosts second veterans’ commemorative day

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.

Congratulations to the Class of 2019

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.

‘We’ve got your back’ helps students feel supported

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.

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.

SADD gets a new name

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.
