SHS yearbook staff archives yearbooks 1969 through 2015

Did you, your spouse or parent graduate from Salisbury High School? The Salisbury High School yearbook staff archived past yearbooks from 1969 through 2015. If you would like to peruse through some high school memories, go to the SHS website and click on the “Community” tab, then “Yearbook Archive.” The years are listed at the top of the page. My husband graduated from Salisbury and it was a real treat to look back at his high school pictures.

Items include flowers and gourds depending on the month. There is a cost for the cards so talk to a member of the junior class for information or to purchase a card.

Christmas tree collection throughout month of January

Winter is definitely making its presence known this year and hopefully things warm up, even just a tad, in the days and weeks to come.

Republic Services will collect Christmas trees during the month of January. Residents are asked to place the trees curbside on either collection day. Any tree over 10 feet must be cut in half.

Boys and girls basketball games on RCN Channel 68

This past week, Salisbury students enjoyed a break from school. During this time, students were able to not only catch up on some much needed sleep, but they were also able to attend both the boys and girls basketball games. If you missed the games, you may still be able to view them on RCN Channel 68.

Winter Ball at Salisbury High School Jan. 13

For those of you who were wondering with bated breath whether or not I finished all my Christmas prep on time… Yes, I did! I had to delegate things I normally do myself, like decorate the Christmas tree (thank you Justus and Bri) and coerce, I mean ask other family members to help wrap, bake and clean. But it all got done before the strike of midnight on Christmas Eve. Woo Hoo!

Salisbury High School will hold its Winter Ball 7 to 10 p.m. Jan. 13 in the high school gym. I hope it warms up a bit for those girls in their pretty dresses.

Schools closed through Jan. 2, 2018

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. This time is always the busiest for us. Since I tend to procrastinate (yes I’m admitting it!), sometimes it takes a miracle to get done. New Year’s Eve is typically down time to recover from the festivities and get ready to start the next year. (Of course there is usually a resolution not to procrastinate.)

All Salisbury Township schools will be closed through Jan. 1, 2018. Schools will resume Jan. 2, 2018.

Jan. 4, 2018 will be the first Harry S Truman Elementary School T-shirt day of 2018. Be sure to wear your leadership shirts.
