For fifth grade students at Western Salisbury Elementary School, learning about blood and its importance came to life Feb. 8 as they organized and instituted a blood drive in the parking lot of the school as part of their science unit on body systems.
Miller-Keystone Blood Center brought the Wayne Leibensperger Jr. Memorial Bloodmobile to the parking lot of the school which brought additional meaning to the blood drive.
Salisbury Middle School has named the students who earned honor roll for the second marking period.

Fifth grade students at Western Salisbury Elementary School are learning about blood and its importance as part of an extension of their science unit on body systems.
This science unit is part of teacher Kathy DeBona’s participation in the district’s #YourSalisbury goal. Librarian Barbara Jaindl worked as a teammate on the project and supplied resources for the students’ written reports.
A visit from Sharon Stephens from Miller-Keystone Blood Center Jan. 31 confirmed the students had done their homework and knew the importance of blood and its various functions in the body.
