Enhancing SA's Safety and Security: This year's Bloom Fund-a-Need
Dear Salisbury Academy Parents, 

As part of our continuous efforts to evaluate the safety of the campus, Salisbury Academy's Buildings and Grounds Committee, with support of the Board of Trustees and Head of School, has outlined multiple opportunities for further strengthening the safety and security infrastructure of the school.
As this year's Bloom Fund-a-Need, funds will be raised for door and window upgrades, parking lot safety enhancements, communication system upgrades, additional security cameras, and several other additions to Salisbury Academy's existing security measures.
These upgrades will complement our carefully-delivered safety protocol and the continuation of Salisbury Academy's ongoing faculty and staff education by local law enforcement, all while providing peace of mind and safety for our very greatest assets: SA's children, faculty, staff, and school community.
Gifts to this year's Fund-a-Need may be made on the evening at the gala or by visiting: Bloom Fund-a-Need 2019 Gifts. Learn more about this year's Bloom Fund-a-Need in the below video. 
Warm Regards,

Beverly Fowler, Head of School

Fourth Grade Time Machine 
Avia Long's family did research for her historical figure, Milton Hershey, on a trip to Hershey, PA this summer.
The Fourth Grade Time Machine Museum is a memorable and exciting academic milestone in the life of an SA student! From Helen Keller, to Harry Houdini, to King Tut, fourth grade students represented a host of fascinating historical figures at their museum. Students entertained and enlightened the school community as they presented in first person as their historical people. 

Reflections from fourth-graders on why they chose their historical figures:

"I chose Wilt Chamberlain because he's the best basketball player in NBA history and I love basketball. When this assignment was announced I had just watched a video on him and knew right away that I was going to be him."
- AJ Jarrell as Wilt Chamberlain

"I really like Paris and things from France, so I chose Marie Antoinette. She was a queen, which I thought was cool." 
- Maddy Morris as Marie Antoinette

"I chose my character because she was a woman pilot. She was brave and adventurous, and I want to be a pilot someday too."
- Josie Fesperman as Amelia Earhart

"I love space and thought Neil Armstrong was really interesting. He got his pilot's license even before his driver's license."
- Blake Cordasci as Neil Armstrong

"My character surprised me by some of the things she did. She made a cookie that was 101 feet in diameter which shocked me." 
- Ocean Teuscher as Ruth Graves Wakefield

"I like racing and driving cars, and so I chose Dale Earnhardt. I remember my grandfather telling me how he met Dale a couple of times."
- Tack Thurman as Dale Earnhardt
