Announcement

Good morning,

I have some news to share with everyone today.  As you may have already heard, I will be the new Principal at Geer Park Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year.  I will truly miss the Salina Staff.   At the same time, this is very exciting for me.   It will be a great opportunity for me to grow professionally and to apply my leadership skills in a K-5 setting.

 

I would like to thank the Salina Community for all of their support during my tenure at Salina Intermediate School.

During the past 10 years, Salina Intermediate has gone through many positive changes and I am happy that I was part of that process.  From being featured and published in a book titled; “Reaching the Highest Standards in Professional Learning (Resources)” by Valerie Von Frank,” and being an AVID Model School & a Certified Site, to the upcoming June 10th Salina Video Premiere Documentary, in collaboration with the AFT & Colorín Colorado groups, it has been very exciting!

 

Salina is truly a special place and this is is primarily due to the dedication of our parents, community members, families, students, teachers and our support staff team!

Our Motto of: “One Team, One Family, One Mission, One Goal” …To ensure high levels of learning for all students!,” has been our common theme here at Salina Intermediate School.

I will cherish all of the relationships and memories I have made at Salina Intermediate.

Thank you all for allowing me to serve you!

 

Sincerely,

Jamel Lawera

Summer Learning Expectations 2019

Students will choose one good fit book. They will read it over the summer and use the rubric as a guide to create both a written and artistic representation of the themes and conflicts in the book. (students can choose to make a diorama, a slideshow, a piece of artwork, an evidence folder resembling something a lawyer would have a courtroom , etc). Students will analyze the text and provide evidence to substantiate the types of conflict presented by the author as well as the themes represented throughout the book.
