Third Graders at HST have become self-directed learners through QR learning stations. A QR code is a black and white square patterned code used for storing information or sharing URLs. These codes are read by dedicated QR bar code readers, tablets, and camera phones. The students scan the QR code to reveal the task and complete it together. This builds on the 21st century skills of communication, collaboration and critical thinking. In math centers third graders use the iPads and a QR Code Reader App to reinforce rounding whole numbers to the nearest 10s and 100s. In language arts, students worked on grammar focus skills and self checked their work using the QR codes.

The theme for this year’s International Literacy Day on September 8, 2014 is “Literacy and Sustainable Development.” This year Salisbury Middle School English and Language Arts teachers developed a variety of educational activities to explore and celebrate our own literacy and discuss literacy issues relevant to our students and their community.
Teachers developed digital presentations explaining the importance of this celebration; students shared and read their favorite childhood books, wrote Book Spine poetry on the importance of literacy, discussed ways Salisbury students could help support literacy in their school and community, explored interactive literacy games, learned more about how to connect globally with pen pals, and visited different literacy centers giving students the ability to choose from a variety of ways to explore literacy issues facing different countries around the world.
The Salisbury High School Art website was completely redesigned by Mr. Jay Linsenbigler this summer with over 400 new images of student artwork! Please visit shsart.zenfolio.com to view all of the outstanding student artwork! In Photography classes, students learn various techniques and methods of shooting and printing- in both digital and film photography. Thanks to Mr. Linsenbigler and Mr. Yetter for the work they do with our students.
