Homecoming is upon us and there is a lot going on.
First, we start with the homecoming parade. This begins 5:30 p.m. Oct. 12, starting at Harry S Truman Elementary School and ending at Salisbury High School. While you are there, stay and watch the Homecoming football game vs. Bangor.
Next on the agenda would be the homecoming dance. That will be held 7-10 p.m. Oct. 13 at SHS.
We are a society always seeking. No, I’m not referring to our search for purpose, a career or love. I’m talking about the constant search for outlets to charge our electronic devices. We charge our phones, tablets, etc. hoping the battery lasts the same amount of time as the day of purchase, only to be sent off running for the nearest outlet to charge yet again much too soon.
With the less than a week left until homecoming, Salisbury High School is putting the final touches on decorations and practicing man dances.
Throughout this week, students have shown their school spirit, by participating in daily themes. These themes included, pajama day, 80s day, U.S.A. day, Hawaiian day and blue and white day.
On Oct. 5, Harry S Truman Elementary School students and staff will hold its annual Heavenly Hat Day fundraiser.
Students are invited to wear their favorite hat to school and to make a donation to this charity. The charity then takes the funds collected and purchases new hats for those who are losing their hair to medical illnesses and complications.
Let’s see all those hats!
All Salisbury Township schools will be closed for a professional development day Oct. 8. Schools will reopen with normal schedules Oct. 9.
Allentown Central Catholic High School celebrated its 2018 Homecoming during the week of Sept. 24-29.
Spirit Week was held Sept. 17-21 and featured themes such as Pajama Day, Jersey Day, Groutfit Day, Twin Day and Green and Gold Day. The week culminated in a pep rally Sept. 28, which featured performances from the varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders, the drumline, the dance team, and the mance team, a long-standing tradition in which senior boys perform a choreographed dance during the pep rally.
I come bearing good news, actually Great News!
Western Salisbury Elementary School students are back home! The mold issues have been taken care of and we moved back into our building Sept. 24. Needless to say, we are a little excited! Just a quick reminder that picture day is scheduled Oct. 9.
I just want to one more time say thank you so much to the staff and administration of Salisbury Middle School and Harry S Truman Elementary School. They were so wonderful to the staff and students of WSE. They helped make a trying situation much easier.
Salisbury High School has been very busy the last few weeks.
Students have begun to plan for Homecoming. Each class has chosen their theme and has begun to prepare decorations. Before long, the yearly man dance will begin to be choreographed.
Mark your calendars for the annual Homecoming Parade. This year’s parade will begin 5:30 p.m Oct. 12, starting at Harry S Truman Elementary School and ending in the SHS stadium. All interested community members should come out to view the parade and then join SHS as they attempt to beat the Slaters at this year’s Homecoming game.
Students at Allentown Central Catholic High School have started the school year by giving of their time and talents.
The Central City Project at ACCHS has begun its salsa-making process. Students tended to the project’s urban garden over the summer, which grew vegetables such as tomatoes, jalapeños and cilantro. On Sept. 5, participants started making the salsa and packing the jars, which will be sold at various events throughout the year to benefit the CCP and its service projects, such as community dinners and clothing giveaways.
Due to the air quality issues at Western Salisbury Elementary School, picture day will now be held Oct. 9.
The open house for grades kindergarten through grade two has been postponed until further notice. More information will follow when students are back home at WSE.
After a short and fun-filled summer, Salisbury High School began school Aug. 21. Over the past two weeks, students have had the opportunity to meet teachers and begin club meetings again.
Fall sports have begun for the 2018-2019 season. The stadium is often packed on weekdays and weekends. Check the sports schedule to see when you can come support the Falcons.
