The Salisbury Middle School/JMA Armstrong High School Evening of the Arts takes place Thursday, May 31st.   This is an evening to celebrate our students and to enjoy their accomplishments in all the Arts; music, visual art and drama.    The doors open at 6:30pm with admission by  a suggested donation  of $5.  Prior the musical performances and the JMA art battle, guests are invited to view artwork of our middle and high school students.  If you have never experienced an "art battle" you are in for a treat.  Students will be painting original works on site and you will have a chance to get involved by voting for your favorite painting and buying it.  The musical performance will include both middle school and high school bands as well as solo performances.  This is a "must see" event of the 2017-2018 school year! We hope you can attend on Thursday, May 31 at 6:30pm.

"Market" at Lunch Time next week
Hello Parents of our Middle School Students,
There will be a “market” set up during the lunch time next week.  The Entrepreneurship class does this each year, selling various items that they have made during the high school and middle school lunch times.  We want for you to know that middle school students can purchase these offerings but it is completely optional.  It is not intended to spend lunch money on so please explain this to your sons and daughters. This project involves a business plan, promotion through posters in the school and the “storefront” itself. 
Thank you on behalf of the Grade 11 Entrepreneurship class.

Mr. Robinson

Poppy Donations Encouraged
Hello Everyone,
Poppies are going out to our students tomorrow and our Remembrance Day Ceremonies are also taking place the same day for both middle and high schools.  Our Salisbury Legion makes these poppies available and we are hoping again this year to be able to help pay for them through a donation from each student. Last year this school set a new record in poppy donations, all of which went to our local Legion for its community projects.  If you are able to support your sons and daughters with a donation tomorrow, this will surely be appreciated.  We will welcome Legion officials at both of our ceremonies tomorrow.  Thank you very much for any support for the Poppy Fund this year at our school.

Sincerely,

Mr. Robinson
