"Do It for Daniel" Event at SHS

Saline High School is bringing an event to the community on April 18, 2018. Daniel Olson’s dad, Jaime, has created a documentary on Daniel’s battle with depression. Daniel was a football star and overachiever in Ishpeming, MI. He loved his family, loved to help people, and was an active member of the community. Daniel’s battle with depression ended on July 19, 2012, when he committed suicide.

Jaime Olson visits high schools sharing his son’s story and helping families create a dialogue about the impact of depression and how to stop the stigma.

We invite you to join us at 6:00 PM on April 18 for this community event.

Saline High School Science Olympiad Continues it's Strong Season Advancing to State Championship.


Saline High School Science Olympiad advanced to  Michigan's State Championship Tournament after qualifying at the Region 9 Tournament yesterday.  Saline finished second and brought home the Runner-up trophy.  Saline High School Varsity won 21 medals in the 23 events while the Alternate Team won two medals.   Pioneer held on to win the Region and will also advance.
'Region 9 is probably the most challenging region in the state'  Several teams in our region are capable of finishing in the top 10 in the state.  Our students understood the challenge and did not shy away from the competition.  Instead, they redoubled their efforts on events that were behind the competition and in several cases caught up and beat them.  I was very proud of how our team worked and how our team has had a philosophy of working for one another. "  said Nath Akella Head Coach.
Saline High School has had an amazing run this year, after winning the Plymouth Invitational in February, Saline took third at the University of Michigan Tournament which hosted teams from all over the mid-west.  Saline has also beaten state championship teams from several other states this year in competitions held in other parts of the mid-west.
Saline won seven gold medals Saturday.  They were Disease Detectives won by Ruth and Leah, an event on Epidemiology; Game On won by Keshav and Reagan, an event where competitors write a computer game in one hour; Materials Science won by Jason and Ruth, an event that covers Polymer Science and Materials Engineering;  Micromission won by Jason and Reagan, an event on Microbiology;  Mission Possible won by Dana and Jordan, and event where they build a 14 mechanism machine; Rocks and Minerals won the Ruth and Lia, an event involving identification of geologic specimens;  Write-it-Do-it won by Ailen and Yolian, an event where one competitor writes a description of an item given and then the second has to build it without seeing it.  Saline also took seven silver medals and seven bronze medals.
The High School team is also excited that Saline Middle School will be joining them at the State Tournament.  The middle school also finished second in their division at the Regional Championship earning a berth.
"We have been really excited about the growth in Science Olympiad.  The program has doubled in size at the high school and we project adding a third team for the high school next year.  It reflects the commitment that our teachers and administration have to fostering interest in STEM here in Saline. We have also had amazing community support with many experts in their fields coming in to share their backgrounds with us. Right now our focus will be States.  Michigan is one of the toughest states in the country and the top two teams get to advance to Nationals.  Our goal is to be one of the two." said Akella.
A rising 9th grade orientation session will be held in April for current 8th graders. Students interested in joining should also attend that session.  The date will be announced after spring break.

WASHTENAW COUNTY COMMUNITY FORUM: COMBATING SUBSTANCE ABUSE
CONGRESSMAN TIM WALBERG PARTNERS WITH SALINE AREA SCHOOLS

Saline High School will be hosting a Washtenaw County Community Forum: Combating Substance Abuse. The event will be held at the Ellen Ewing Auditorium at Saline High School on Tuesday, April 3 from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM. Congressman Tim Walberg, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions, is partnering with Saline Area Schools and our Liaison Officer from the Pittsfield Police Department to share concerns and resources with educators and parents.

The use of vaping, edibles, and other substances can go undetected, and these items have been relatively easy for students to obtain.

Please plan to join Saline Area Schools students and educators and Congressman Walberg on April 3.

Saline Area Schools’ Mission Statement: We, the Saline Area Schools, will equip all students with the knowledge, technological proficiency, and personal skills necessary to succeed in an increasingly complex society.  We expect that our students, staff, and the Saline community will share in these responsibilities. Our ultimate goal is to instill in our students a desire for lifelong learning.
