Register for kindergarten at W. Salisbury Elementary School Feb. 20

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Whether you are or aren’t celebrating with someone special, have a piece of chocolate, it will brighten your day.

Feb. 15 is a snow make-up day so all township schools will be in session. On the brighter side, all township schools will be closed Feb. 18 in observance of Presidents Day. Also, both Harry S Truman Elementary and Western Salisbury Elementary will have a 1 p.m. dismissal Feb. 22.

The middle school and high school will dismiss at normal time.

Kindergarten registration at Harry S Truman Elementary School Feb. 21

Groundhog Day has come and gone and the crazy groundhog Phil didn’t see his shadow. Personally I’m hoping for an early spring, but we definitely don’t need the rain that typically comes with it. But after last week, I’m over snow days and eagerly awaiting warmer temperatures.

Harry S Truman Elementary School will hold the annual first grade celebration of the 100th day of school Feb. 7. The parade will begin 9:30 a.m. for the students to show off their fashions.
