WESTERN SALISBURY COLUMN The last day of school is June 12

Thursday, June 7, 2018 by REBECCA FOEHRKOLB in Columns

It’s here – the last day of school! No more lunches to pack, no more dragging kids out of bed at 6 a.m. and flagging down the bus driver as my son puts on his shoes. No more asking “Do you have homework?” “Is your homework finished?” Oh wait, this is about the kids, right?

June 11 is an early dismissal. Salisbury High School and Salisbury Middle School will dismiss 12:15 p.m. and Harry S Truman and Western Salisbury elementary schools will dismiss 1 p.m.

Did you, your spouse or parent graduate from Salisbury High School? The Salisbury High School yearbook staff archived past yearbooks from 1969 through 2015. If you would like to peruse through some high school memories, go to the SHS website and click on the “Community” tab, then “Yearbook Archive.” The years are listed at the top of the page. My husband graduated from Salisbury and it was a real treat to look back at his high school pictures.

Winter Ball at Salisbury High School Jan. 13

For those of you who were wondering with bated breath whether or not I finished all my Christmas prep on time… Yes, I did! I had to delegate things I normally do myself, like decorate the Christmas tree (thank you Justus and Bri) and coerce, I mean ask other family members to help wrap, bake and clean. But it all got done before the strike of midnight on Christmas Eve. Woo Hoo!

Salisbury High School will hold its Winter Ball 7 to 10 p.m. Jan. 13 in the high school gym. I hope it warms up a bit for those girls in their pretty dresses.
