Salisbury High School students had their last day of school June 12. As I participated in some of the final activities for the year, I was able to reflect on my first year at SHS.
When I first walked in the doors for orientation, like everyone else, I was afraid I would get lost. This however, I soon learned would never happen, because everyone who goes to or has been to Salisbury knows, it’s just a square.
The last days of school are here!
