Salisbury schools closed March 8 for an in-service day

Despite Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction for an early spring, The snow keeps piling up. Hopefully spring arrives soon.

All Salisbury Township schools will be closed March 8 for a teacher in-service day. School will resume March 11.

Daylight saving time begins March 10; don’t forget to “spring” those clocks forward one hour. Also remember to change your smoke detector batteries as well.

We love our fire departments; however, seeing them due to a fire is not the best way to meet them.

Kindergarten registration at Harry S Truman Elementary School Feb. 21

Groundhog Day has come and gone and the crazy groundhog Phil didn’t see his shadow. Personally I’m hoping for an early spring, but we definitely don’t need the rain that typically comes with it. But after last week, I’m over snow days and eagerly awaiting warmer temperatures.

Harry S Truman Elementary School will hold the annual first grade celebration of the 100th day of school Feb. 7. The parade will begin 9:30 a.m. for the students to show off their fashions.

Christmas trees collected on second collection day

Now that the holidays are all behind us, January is in full swing! We have officially taken down all signs of Christmas at my house and it makes things just a tad less stressful for me personally.

That being said, Christmas trees will be collected during January on the second collection night with garbage pickup. Trees over 10 feet tall are requested to be cut in half, or you may just find them still on your curb.

There is a school board meeting scheduled 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16 in the administration building.

Annual holiday shop offers affordable gifts for young shoppers

The Harry S Truman Elementary School PTO holiday shop is in full swing this week to allow students to pick out gifts for the holidays at an affordable price. Prices range from 25 cents to $10 and a shopping list was sent home with students. This is always a great experience for students to pick out their own gifts and PTO volunteers assist and wrap the gifts for them.
