Schools open for the 2015-2016 school year in one month

Wednesday, August 5, 2015 by REBECCA FOEHRKOLB in Columns

As much as I hate to say it, and trust me, I do, school is now a month away. So, in between your summer fun and relaxation, you might want to start preparing for the first day.

Western Salisbury Elementary School and Salisbury Middle School have the supply lists for each grade on their websites. This is just a guideline, but it is there to make life and learning a lot easier for your student and the teacher. Organization is a key element to education and the earlier we teach our students this, the better.

WESTERN SALISBURY Enjoy the theater this summer

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 by REBECCA FOEHRKOLB in Columns

I would like to tell you about something I used to do with my boys in the summer.

When they were little, to get them out of the house and expose them to something other than a TV or Game Boy, I would take them to local summer theatre. Muhlenberg College and DeSales University have wonderful shows. After the performance, the kids can stay and talk to the actors, get autographs and their picture taken. For the same price as a movie ticket, you get live action, colorful sets and beautiful costumes. You can't beat it.
