WESTERN SALISBURY COLUMN March 14 is Pi day

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 by REBECCA FOEHRKOLB Special to The Press in Columns

All Salisbury Township schools will be closed March 14 for a professional development day.

March 14 is also known as Pi day for the correlation between the date 3-14 and the value of Pi as 3.14.

In March 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives resolved to: support the designation of Pi Day and its celebration; recognize the continuing importance of the National Science Foundation's math and science education programs encouraging schools and educators to observe the day with appropriate activities that teach students about Pi and engage them about the study of mathematics.

Graduation moved to June 11

The date of graduation for the Class of 2014 has been moved to 6 p.m. June 11 at Symphony Hall. The nine snow days we have accumulated this year have unfortunately made that a necessity. Hopefully, this big storm will be the end of it and we can start to thaw out.

Spring athletic practices are scheduled to begin March 3, and I have no idea how that is going to happen when it seems like we won't see grass for another month, and when we do it will be a muddy mess.

WESTERN SALISBURY COLUMN PSSA testing is right around the corner

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 by REBECCA FOEHRKOLB Special to The Press in Columns

Starting Feb. 3, students in grades six through eight will begin with the PSSA writing field test. That will last a few days and then there are a few weeks off before the bulk of the testing starts in mid-March and runs pretty much through the end of April.

Between the testing and the make-up days, PSSA's can really wreak havoc on teaching schedules and routines, so make sure your students are well rested and prepared for the day. Let's also not forget the possibility of snow days in there. We saw what they did to the Keystone exam schedule at the high school. What a mess.
