Our Salina Scientists worked hard in preparation for their experiment in the annual Science Fair that was held February 1st, 2017.  The Fair was open to all students in 6th, 7th, and 8th.

The participating students were to develop a problem statement or question they wanted to answer, then conduct the research on that problem, collect the data and develop a conclusion. They used a display board to tell the story of their project and were to prepare a final written report.  Finally, the projects were reviewed by judges. These judges interviewed the students, giving them the opportunity to explain their projects and the work they performed.  Thank you to Ms. Muhsin, Ms. Hussein, and Ms. Baydoun, and for your hard work in organizing the fair:

Meet Tanya, our newly hired security guard.

Good afternoon,

Our fifth adult education classroom opened at Salina Intermediate on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017.  The students for this class will have picture ID badges which they will be given this week.

In addition, Salina will be receiving one security officer who will work from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  Her name is Tanya and she will be assisting with student transitions, monitoring the hallways, monitoring adult ed classrooms, etc.

To make the transition smoother for everyone, we are asking that all employees and groups wear their ID badges.  This will help Tanya out a lot as well.  If someone doesn’t have their ID badge on, she will stop them and ask for one.  All visitors and guests should enter through door # 1, after they are buzzed in and check in at the main office.  Visitor badges will be given out once a visitor is signed in.

Thank you in advance.


Mr. Lawera


Mid-Year NWEA Testing and P.B.I.S. Assemblies…

Dear Parents/Guardians,

During the month of January, each grade level attended a mid-year P.B.I.S./Response to Bullying Assembly.  Mr. Omar and Mr. Lawera discussed the following topics; school safety, response to bullying, classroom and school expectations, tardies, dismissal, tutoring, summer school and reading, to name a few.  In addition, middle school students attended a short play presented by JET’s theater.  They performed and discussed anti-bullying.  Salina Intermediate was featured in the Downriver Sunday Times.  You can read the article on the following link:  https://downriversundaytimes.com/2017/01/23/word-teaches-students-how-to-actively-prevent-bullying/

-Special thanks to Mr. Bruce for setting up the anti-bullying plays for the middle school students.

January NWEA testing will be completed on Friday.  Student scores will be available for all to view after Feb. 3rd.  Parent Contracts will be updated as well.  Please contact your child’s teacher or the school counselor if you’d like more information on your child’s NWEA score.

Please remember to have your child read for 20-30 minutes each night.  Students can even read online by going to “Clever” on the Dearborn Public School’s website.  There, they can login to Khan Academy, MyOn and/or MobyMax.  Finally, the students can go to the following website for additional NWEA Reading and Math practice:  https://iblog.dearbornschools.org/nweapractice/

Please join us on Feb. 15th @ 9:30 for our next Parent Principal Forum Meeting.  We will discuss and walk parents through these websites once again.


Mr. Lawera
