Congratulations to the Class of 2019

Salisbury students are all excitedly looking forward to the last day of school.

Salisbury High School students will have a 12:15 p.m. dismissal June 12 and a 10:30 a.m. dismissal June 13. As the year comes to a close, I think that it is time to reflect upon what SHS students have accomplished throughout this year.

Salisbury students have been active in many different clubs.

Students Against Destructive Decisions became Students Taking Active Roles, which allowed the members to include more topics to plan more activities.

Volunteers needed for the HST Ice Cream Festival June 1

With Memorial Day 2019 in the books, that means we are officially in the home stretch of the school year. Everything seems to be winding down, but in some sense, things are starting to get a little more crazy.

On May 30, students in the gifted program will present in the Harry S Truman Elementary School gym. Look for information to be coming home with your student if they are in the gifted program.

‘We’ve got your back’ helps students feel supported

The Salisbury High School AEVIDUM club encouraged students to wear yellow May 16 to promote Stopping the Stigma and creating a Community of Care. The goal of this club is to make sure everyone at SHS feels supported. In order to promote the idea of “We’ve got your back,” the club passed out yellow smiley face stickers and wrote the name of every student and staff at SHS on paper hands, which were displayed in SHS’s hallways. Students interested in joining AEVIDUM should email Mrs. Legath.

Understanding the attraction of salty and sweet

Chocolate-covered pretzels, caramel popcorn, peanut butter and jelly, pineapple pizza, salt on watermelon (yes, it’s a thing) - sweet and salty is a pairing made in food heaven. The combination is found nearly everywhere to the point where, on the surface, the two make perfect sense, but think it over and it’s not necessarily obvious why these two flavors work so well.

Why don’t these two flavors clash? Scientists from Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia and Utah State University set out to answer this very question.
