For the past several years, the Department of Visual and Performing Arts has been publishing a newsletter to shine a light on the activities and achievements of Salisbury Township School District students.

Each newsletter includes photos and articles written by the members of the department.  In an average newsletter you may learn that we have students spinning clay at the elementary school, marching with the high school band in the homecoming parade, or singing at the Lehigh Valley Mall.  This past issue includes coverage of our First Annual K-12 Art Show!

To learn more about our Visual and Performing Arts program and view the work of our talented students and teachers, take a few minutes to view past issues of the newsletters. Newsletters dating back to September 2012 can be viewed here.
