Well, here we are on officially the first full day of summer vacation for the kids. If your kids are home for the summer, there are plenty of options to keep them entertained. If yours are like mine….when they get bored, it’s usually not a good thing!
As the school year comes to a close, students excitedly wait for the final day of school when summer vacation will officially begin. Reflecting on the previous year, it seems Salisbury students have been busy academically and active in many different extracurricular activities.
It’s here – the last day of school! No more lunches to pack, no more dragging kids out of bed at 6 a.m. and flagging down the bus driver as my son puts on his shoes. No more asking “Do you have homework?” “Is your homework finished?” Oh wait, this is about the kids, right?
June 11 is an early dismissal. Salisbury High School and Salisbury Middle School will dismiss 12:15 p.m. and Harry S Truman and Western Salisbury elementary schools will dismiss 1 p.m.

During the week of May 14 in preparation for the prom, students participated in a prom spirit week. Each day had a different theme.

The end of the school year is fast approaching, and with it comes….graduation!
