School routines are settling in and the weather is actually starting to feel like fall. With that, it’s my favorite month...October!
School events are in full force and we start the early dismissals for the year.
The fifth annual Salisbury High School Homecoming parade will begin 5:30 p.m. Oct. 4 traveling Gaskill Avenue at Harry S Truman Elementary School to Tweed Avenue to Montgomery Street and end at the Salisbury High School parking lot. Come on out to show your Falcon Pride and be sure to join the fun at the Homecoming game, starting 7 p.m. against the Northern Lehigh Bulldogs.
The annual Homecoming dance will be held at SHS 7 p.m. Oct. 5. Information should have been given to the high school students regarding tickets.
The back to school events are slowly coming to an end and hopefully everyone is falling back into the routine. There are still a number of events going on, and fundraisers are in full swing or awaiting delivery.
We are officially past the first week of the new school year. Hope everyone had a great first few days. With the beginning of a new school year, comes all kinds of craziness.
Salisbury Middle School will hold its open house 6:45-8:30 p.m. Sept. 5. A detailed schedule has been sent to the email on file with specific times and locations depending on what grade your child is in. The school scheduled it so you can attend more than one if you need to do so. Hope to see you there.
The Salisbury Township Environmental Advisory Council will host an informational evening for the community, ”Residential Recycling and How to Do It The Right Way” 7 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Salisbury Township municipal building, 2900 S. Pike Ave., Allentown. The presentation will include how impact of contamination affects recycling and what residential recycling materials are accepted for curbside pickup.
According to Salisbury Township School District Superintendent Dr. Randy Ziegenfuss, start of school information, including schedules for secondary students, teacher assignments for elementary students and bus assignments for all students will be available in the community portal Aug. 15. Visit https://bit.ly/2LyGB8H at that time to access student information. Ziegenfuss noted an internal error opened the portal for access prior to everything being finalized. He asked that information be disregarded and updated information will be available soon.
What if you could grow food year-round, on a self-sustainable setup that required little maintenance to be successful? Would you try it? Well that’s just what the students in the fourth grade at Harry S Truman Elementary School accomplished this academic year.
Fourth grade teacher Steven Tremblay developed the idea from a contact through JuicePlus, a brand of fortified dietary supplements and a desire to help students eat healthier foods.
Salisbury Township School District will host summer library hours 9:30-11:30 a.m. July 10 and 17 at Harry S Truman Elementary School. Come check out all the amazing things in a book.
