A Reminder to Students and Parents: SHS is a closed campus.

Attention all SHS students: You must sign out with Mrs. James at the front Sign-Out desk on the first floor when you leave during the school day--no matter the reason. And all students must sign back in--regardless of why you were gone. Otherwise, you will be truant and a disciplinary referral will be written. Attention SHS Parents: Students may not come or go during the day without parent/guardian permission. Please send a note with your student allowing them to do so which they should give to the Attendance Clerk, Mrs. James.

ATTENTION:

STUDENTS SIGN IN AND OUT EVERY TIME: All students must physically sign in and out at the Front Office Desk on the first floor with Mrs. James during school hours regardless of where and when they are going. Otherwise they will be marked truant. PARENTS NEED TO REPORT ABSENCES AND TARDIES: Please call the Attendance Line (734) 401-4387, to report your student’s absence or tardy. Always send in a note to allow your student to sign out early which Mrs. James can authorize—then we do not have to interrupt the teachers.

CyberPatriot Team at SHS!!

CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association to inspire high school and middle school students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future. The program features an annual competition, in which teams across the United States and Canada, as well as from Department of Defense Dependent Schools abroad, compete in a series of online rounds for a chance to earn an all-expenses-paid trip to the in-person CyberPatriot National Finals Competition in Baltimore, MD in the spring. There, students have the opportunity to win scholarships and network with industry leaders. Saline High School has a team participating in the 8th season of CyberPatriot's National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.

Early College Alliance (ECA)

The SAS district has committed to participating in the ECA as a secondary option for our students. What is it? The Early College Alliance (ECA) is a unique educational program designed to fully immerse high school-aged students into the post-secondary learning environment. ECA is a public, early/middle college program located on the campus of Eastern Michigan University. It exists in partnership with local school districts, including Washtenaw Intermediate School District. The program gives students an opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school and offers strong, academically focused students a chance to enroll in advanced, college-level coursework. It also provides an alternative for students who are either struggling or do not feel connected to their school. ECA allows students to: *Graduate from high school with a diploma and up to 60 college credits. *Attend classes on a university campus with support. *Learn in a college environment that fosters maturity and academic growth. *Gain vital skills for college success. ECA is funded through a percentage of each district's foundation allowance and continues seeking additional funding through both public and private sources. ECA is recognized by the Michigan Department of Education as a four plus one program. Students can participate in the program a year past what would have been their graduation year, while not negatively impacting the district’s Adequate Yearly Progress. This is an added benefit to the district and to the student. The ECA is an alternative for students who want a different high school experience. This is similar to the other options that are available. Below is a list of all of the secondary options that are available to Saline students: ECA - Early College Alliance through Eastern Michigan University, WIHI - Washtenaw International High School (County International Baccalaureate (IB) program, WAVE - Washtenaw Alliance for Virtual Education, Saline Alternative High School.

Haiti Team 9

Chris Trainor, Ari Frink and Jen Denzin had the honor of taking 19 students to Haiti from December 3-10, 2016. Unlike past trips installing water filters, this trip focused on Hurricane Matthew disaster relief. We divided our time between three tasks, building a community bakery, rebuilding the compound walls for the Top Notch Translator Academy, and transporting cinder blocks up the mountainside to rebuild the home of a mason. He, in turn, is tasked with helping 2 other masons rebuild, and so on... The funds for these projects were raised by PowderPuff attendance, the Mr. Pretty Legs contest, and the SAS Denim Day donation. We ended each day teaching English in the academy and working with younger kids who are not enrolled in school (roughly 50% of Haiti's children do not attend school). SHS students making the trip included: Hannah Bird, Marissa Brandly, Lyndsie Clossick, Nicole Deford, Marley Duerst, Megan Ender, Erin Evans, Justin Flanagan, Mitchell Gasche, Noah Helber, Laila Houser, Taylor Konwinski, Francesca Panzica, Tyler Plocki, Olivia Walker, Ethan Walsh, Maggie Werner, Bryce Wolma, and Tyler Zmich.

Kristen Klager wins State FFA competition!

Kristen Klager, SHS Student, won the Michigan Farm Bureau’s Youth Discussion Meet on November 29th in Grand Rapids. This year’s contestants took on several topics relevant to farmers today: Farmers have progressively produced more food using fewer of our limited natural resources, like land and water. What technological advancements have helped improve agriculture’s efficiency? What’s the next frontier for improving agricultural efficiency? In the truest sense of sustainability, agriculture, environment and social concerns walk hand-in-hand. What changes have farmers made to help improve how they manage environmental resources? What policies have helped—or harmed—farmers’ abilities to manage their farms and resources? Sixty percent of American farmers are 55 years old or older. Discuss contributing factors to the gradual aging of the farming population and ways we can attract more young farmers. What new or existing programs could entice more young people into production agriculture. More...
