Forty-eight lives will be saved Feb. 8 thanks to WSE fifth grade students

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.

Q: In what grade are you currently enrolled?

A: I am currently enrolled in 12th grade at Salisbury High School.

Q: What is your favorite subject? Why?

A: My favorite subject is either Advanced Placement World History or Advanced Placement Biology. I love the biological sciences, so being able to learn about them more extensively is interesting to me. However, I have found that I love learning about the development of the world and human population. Both subjects explore the content in a way that is both fun and interesting. I owe my interest to my teachers.

Unofficial bowling team competes against Emmaus

Even though they are not an officially recognized extracurricular sporting group, a band of Salisbury High School bowlers are taking to the lanes and competing independently in unofficial matches with other valley youth.

Salisbury math and physics teacher Paul Koba, unofficial advisor to the students, has been a bowler for five decades and recognizes the exercise, competitive and social advantages of the sport. He is hoping to get Salisbury education officials behind the effort to make bowling, and the group of student enthusiasts, a recognized school activity club.
