Classes resume Jan. 5, 2015; HST holds the first T-shirt day of the new year Jan. 8, 2015

It is hard to believe Christmas and the 2014 holiday season are now behind us. Hopefully Santa was good to everyone. As I write this, realizing by the time this reaches you it will be New Year's Eve, I reflect on everything this year has brought. It sure has been a busy year but I'm ready to embrace 2015.

Salisbury Township School District schools remain closed and will reopen Jan. 5, 2015. Hope everyone is enjoying the break.

There will be an operations committee meeting 7 p.m. Jan. 5, 2015, in the administration building.

It's hard to believe the holiday season is in full swing and before we know it, it will be 2015. The holiday season is a busy one for everyone.

On Dec. 20, Santa will be escorted through the east side of the township by his helpers at the Eastern Salisbury Fire Department. They plan to begin their journey around 9 a.m. so keep your ears and eyes open.

Scouts hold their annual flag retirement ceremony

Flags must be dissassembled and burned in final tribute

Boy Scout Troop #146 and Cub Scout Pack #146 gathered Nov. 9 for an annual flag retirement ceremony.

During the ceremony, Scouts distribute United States flags that have been meticulously separated into their base parts, the stripes and the stars. Once the flags are separated, they are no longer the U.S. flag; however, the parts of the flag are still awarded respect.

The ceremony explains the meaning behind each part of the flag and allows the flags to be retired.

The flags are disposed of appropriately under the supervision of the Boy Scout Troop.

School Thanksgiving holiday dates announced; holiday shop scheduled

It is hard to believe we have already had our first snowfall of the year. Although I'm sure most parents are thankful the snow days haven't begun yet!

However, it is the middle of November and that means the first marking period report cards will come home Nov. 19 from Harry S Truman Elementary School. Kindergarten conferences will be held Nov. 20 at HST and Western Salisbury Elementary schools. Following the distribution of report cards come parent teacher conferences and early dismissals for the kids.
