Oct. 7 is a busy day for Salisbury township schools. It will be a school T-shirt day and Heavenly Hat Day for Salisbury Elementary School.
Heavenly Hat Day is a day students can wear their favorite hat to school and make a donation to the Heavenly Hats Foundation. The foundation distributes new hats to people who have lost their hair to disease or treatment. It was founded by 10-year-old Anthony Leanna in 2001 and has distributed over 4,500,000 hats.
Also on Oct. 7 is the first Salisbury Middle School dance and activity night. The evening will be split into two sections. From 6-7:30 p.m., the evening belongs to the fifth and sixth graders. From 7:45-9:15 p.m., the seventh and eighth graders will have the fun.
All Salisbury schools will be closed Oct. 10 in observance of Columbus Day.
Don’t forget about Homecoming weekend. The parade starts at SES 5:30 p.m. Oct. 14 and ends at the high school, leading into the homecoming football game 7 p.m. against Pine Grove. Come out and cheer on our team. Admission is free!
