Salisbury High School to hold spring concert May 7

It is officially the fourth marking period for the 2023-2024 school year. And as I’m winding down on what has been a great senior year with my oldest, I was told our seniors have six Fridays left. WHAT!? The days are numbered for this school year so those with students who will return to school next year know that number is not much larger. For those senior parents like myself, hold on to these days because they are flying by.

Pennsylvania System of School Assessment testing for those in grades 3-8 will occur April 22-24 (English/Language Arts) and April 29-30 (math). Students in grades 4 and 8 will take the science PSSAs May 1 and 2. Please encourage students to have breakfast and take their time and simply do their best. That is all we can ask of our students.

Salisbury High School will hold its spring concert 7 p.m. May 7. This concert will feature choral and instrumental performances as well as a tribute to the Class of 2024. Admission is free and a reception will follow the concert.

The Salisbury Township Art Show will be May 8 beginning 5 p.m. at SHS and will feature art from grades K-12.
