EASTERN SALISBURY COLUMN HST holiday concert Dec. 15

Wednesday, December 14, 2016 by SARAH TAKACS in Columns

Harry S Truman Elementary School will present its annual fourth and fifth grade band and chorus concert 2 p.m. Dec. 15. This is always a great performance. If you are able to attend, I highly recommend it! The snow date, should we need it, will be 2 p.m. Dec. 20.

Dec. 16 will be Heavenly Hats Day at HST. Students are encouraged to wear their favorite hat. They are asked to bring in any amount of change to donate to the Heavenly Hats Foundation.

The sights and sounds of autumn are finally all around us. Now that it is October, I am enjoying everything pumpkin I can get my hands on….yes, I’m one of “those” people.

School starts Aug. 29 and 30

Thursday, August 25, 2016 by SARAH TAKACS in Columns

By the time my column is read, we will be less than a week away from the first day of school.

I’m already feeling the effects of preparing to send my youngest on the bus for the first time – and yes, I’m a nervous wreck. But I have confidence that along with all the other kindergarten parents we can get through this.

The first day of school for students in grades kindergarten, sixth and ninth is Aug. 29. All students report Aug. 30. Please keep in mind, all Salisbury Township School District schools will be closed Sept. 2 through 5 for the Labor Day holiday.

Playground Day scheduled for July 27

Tuesday, July 26, 2016 by SARAH TAKACS in Columns

Summer is in full swing and that means pools, vacations, trips and...school supplies in stores already? We all know that stores are always way ahead of schedule....but even my daughter has begun bugging to buy school supplies. I know she is excited, but we haven’t even had our “official” vacation yet.

Hoping everyone is having a fun but safe summer so far.

Salisbury High School will continue summer library hours 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. July 27 and Aug. 3. Books for all ages are available.
