SALINA GIVES

Students at Salina Intermediate participated in a student council project to collect more than 2,000 non-perishable food items for families across metro Detroit. Students council students in both elementary and middle school, along with staff, gave up their Saturday to deliver the food and also serve meals at the Muslim Community Center Soup Kitchen in Detroit.  Staff and students said it was a great feeling to not only collect the food items, but to see the process of who the food helps out during difficult times.  

Hunger has no season so Salina’s Student Council will be doing this again in the spring and will include a clothing and book drive, as well.

CELL PHONES

Dearborn Public Schools policy on cell phones is that they cannot be seen or heard. We discourage students from bringing them to school. If a phone is brought to school, it must be turned off and locked in the locker until 2:55 p.m. Students may not use their phones inside the school, or on the busses. Phones may only be used after school and outside of the building. School personnel will not be responsible for lost or stolen phones. If a cell phone is seen or heard, it will be confiscated and returned only to a parent or guardian the following day. The second time a cell phone is confiscated will result in a parent/guardian picking up the cell phone from administration.  Repeated offenses will result in further discipline.
