‘Almost, Maine’ auditions continue Sept. 13

Students are returning to the routine of high school. With classes in session for almost three weeks now, it won’t be long before student activities begin again.

Model UN, a club where students learn how the United Nations is run and have the opportunity to perform mock trials, began Sept. 8. Keep an eye out for the debate team, a group of students who research and debate topics that relate to what is happening in the world today, as they will be beginning their season shortly.

Laptop distribution expected Aug. 30

With the end of summer fast approaching, students are finishing their last bit of summer homework and savoring the final few days of summer.

Since students leave the end of the school year knowing their schedules for the following year and receive the official schedule two weeks before school starts, students are only waiting for one thing – their laptops.

School’s out for the summer

Salisbury High School students had their last day of school June 12. As I participated in some of the final activities for the year, I was able to reflect on my first year at SHS.

When I first walked in the doors for orientation, like everyone else, I was afraid I would get lost. This however, I soon learned would never happen, because everyone who goes to or has been to Salisbury knows, it’s just a square.

Debate team takes season, semi-finals and moves on to finals

Students from Salisbury High School traveled to Saucon Valley High School to compete against Pennridge High School in their final debate of the year.

SHS was on the affirmative team, while Pennridge High School was on the negative team, for this year’s resolve, “The United States should implement a DNA database for all criminal suspects.” Each team is required to give two speeches, question the other team two times and write and present one rebuttal. The individual debate teams can have a maximum of four members; however, they can have less than four members.
