Building a School Community

August 26, 2011

Today was quietly a very important day for Saline Area Schools.  At the High School we hosted our orientation program called Link Crew for incoming 9th grade students.  At the Middle School 6th grade students were welcomed through a WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) training for incoming 6th grade students.

The surface goal was simple.  We wanted to provide the students with a chance to learn about the new buildings and grade levels that they were entering.  Each program used fellow students (upperclassman & 8th Graders) to help educate and inform the new students about what to expect.

However, the deeper goal was to begin to establish a “school community” where our students are collectively invested in the success of each other.  Thank you to the students and staff for their efforts today  to make sure the 2011-2012 school year is off to a great start.
