Salisbury High School has been very busy the last few weeks.
Students have begun to plan for Homecoming. Each class has chosen their theme and has begun to prepare decorations. Before long, the yearly man dance will begin to be choreographed.
Mark your calendars for the annual Homecoming Parade. This year’s parade will begin 5:30 p.m Oct. 12, starting at Harry S Truman Elementary School and ending in the SHS stadium. All interested community members should come out to view the parade and then join SHS as they attempt to beat the Slaters at this year’s Homecoming game.
After a short and fun-filled summer, Salisbury High School began school Aug. 21. Over the past two weeks, students have had the opportunity to meet teachers and begin club meetings again.
Fall sports have begun for the 2018-2019 season. The stadium is often packed on weekdays and weekends. Check the sports schedule to see when you can come support the Falcons.
After 37 years of ministry, Pastor Jim Bowers has retired from his position at The Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit, 3461 S. Cedar Crest Blvd., Emmaus.
As a youth, Bowers (known as Pastor Jim) was active in his church’s youth group at Atonement Lutheran Church in Wyomissing. When Bowers began his college career, he pursued a degree in math and physics, before realizing his life was meant to take a different path.
Quickly changing his degree, he decided to become a psychologist. He received his doctorate in clinical psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
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.
