The Salisbury Middle School team finished 3rd at the
regional competition and was one of three teams out of 11 in the
Baltimore/Annapolis and Chesapeake Chapter -- and the only team from the
Eastern Shore -- to qualify for the state competition. The state competition
was held at Johns Hopkins University on March 18. The Salisbury Middle team
finished 13th out of 31 teams competing from all over Maryland, an outstanding
finish in the team's second year of competition.

Salisbury Middle School was the recipient of two grants this week. The first was the Samuel W. Seidel Memorial Reading Forever Endowment. This will help our school library to purchase books to inspire our students to read. We are thankful to The Community Foundation of the Eastern shore for providing us with this grant. The second award was the Exxon Education Alliance Award. This grant provided $500 to our math and science programs. We are very thankful for the Springdale Food Mart in East New Market for nominating us for this award.
Please continue to send in your Box Tops for Education!
