DECA International Career Development Conference During the week of April 24, 2017, eight Saline High School DECA members, along with their advisor Kara Stemmer, traveled to Anaheim, California to attend/compete at the International Career Development Conference. The following students qualified at two previous competitions, District and States, which were held earlier in the year. At these competitions, they earned top scores and advanced to the International conference in California where there were over 19,000 students in attendance. The team of Megan Foley and Annie Nelson competed in the Entrepreneurship Promotion Project, Aidan Nam and Stephanie Schick competed in the Travel and Tourism Team Decision making event and lastly, Laila Houser, Sophie Rash and Delaney Silhanek participated in the School Based Enterprise Retail event. Junior Edward Settle recently campaigned for a Michigan DECA State Officer position and won! He attended the International conference to begin his training and networking in preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, where he'll be traveling around the country representing Michigan DECA. As mentioned earlier, Houser, Rash and Silhanek represented The EDGE, Saline High School's School-Based Enterprise, as it was among 360 school stores in the United States achieving Gold Level Certification (or Gold Level Re-certification) this year and was recognized at DECA’s International Career Development Conference. A school-based enterprise (SBE) is an entrepreneurial operation in a school setting that provides goods and services to meet the needs of the market. Marketing educators and DECA advisors have utilized this effective educational tool for over four decades to provide their students with realistic and practical learning experiences that reinforce classroom instruction, enhance 21st century skill development, and prepare students for college and careers. DECA is the extracurricular business club offered through the SWWC Marketing department at Saline High School. It's a nationally recognized business club with over 200,000 high school members in over 5,000 schools across all 50 states and nine countries. Visit www.deca.org for more information.
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.
