Kidstuff and SaveAround coupon books available at HST

Wednesday, September 7, 2016 by SARAH TAKACS in Columns

The first week of school is behind us, but there are so many activities and events kicking into full swing.

The Harry S Truman Elementary School PTO has begun its fundraiser with the Kidstuff and SaveAround coupon books. A sample of each book was sent home with children. If you’d like to purchase it, send in the appropriate payment. If you need to order extras, fill out the order envelopes and return to school with payment and additional books will be sent home. If you do not want to purchase them, simply return the books to school.

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.

Happy June! We are in the home stretch of school, which is often bittersweet. Graduation is right around the corner. Good luck and best wishes to the class of 2016! May you succeed in whatever direction life takes you.

The last few weeks of school always seem to be filled with activities. This year is no exception.

The field day for Harry S Truman Elementary School kindergarten through second graders has been rescheduled....yes again! Hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate 1:30 to 3 p.m. June 1 so the students can have their outside activities.

Celebrate ‘Falcon Proud Day’ May 4

Thursday, May 5, 2016 by SARAH TAKACS in Columns

The days of May are officially here and our township is bursting with activity.

“Falcon Proud Day” is May 4. Wear your falcon attire and show your school pride.

My husband, and biggest kid, would be upset if I did not mention May the Fourth is also Star Wars Day. Yes, I went there. Enjoy the day all you Star Wars fanatics!

Salisbury High School will host a presentation of the heroin and opioid prevention education program 6:30 p.m. May 4. As a community, let’s all come together to keep our families safe.
