Heavenly Hat Day at Harry S Truman Elementary School Oct. 5

On Oct. 5, Harry S Truman Elementary School students and staff will hold its annual Heavenly Hat Day fundraiser.

Students are invited to wear their favorite hat to school and to make a donation to this charity. The charity then takes the funds collected and purchases new hats for those who are losing their hair to medical illnesses and complications.

Let’s see all those hats!

All Salisbury Township schools will be closed for a professional development day Oct. 8. Schools will reopen with normal schedules Oct. 9.

Access student portals for bus and teacher assignments

Well here is the time of year either parent’s love or loathe. It’s back to school time.

I can honestly say I’m totally torn this year. My kids definitely are ready to go back to school for the structure, but I’m not ready to go back to work just yet. Ready or not….it’s here.

A few things for the back to school events in Salisbury this year: please make sure you have access to your student’s portal information. All bus cards and teacher assignments will be listed there. Bus cards will not be mailed this year. This is a change from last year.

Elementary band concert May 22 at Harry S Truman Elementary School

This spring seems to have flown by, maybe because Mother Nature wasn’t sure what she was doing.

We have officially passed the mid-marking period of the fourth quarter and if your students are like mine, the official countdown to the last day of school has begun.

Harry S Truman Elementary School will host the annual spring concert 9:30 a.m. May 17. The third grade students will perform with their recorders they have worked so hard to learn and the fourth and fifth grade chorus will perform. Hope you can make this performance.
