Big picture

Welcome Back and Happy New Year! I hope everyone has spent a wonderful Winter Break enjoying time with family and friends. All the best in 2019!


A big thank you to the parents who took time to come in for the “Coffee and Conversation” with the administration here at SHS. It was a nice turn out with many great discussions. We will be hosting another one in the near future!


Time is flying...our seniors will be graduating before we know it! We are beginning the process of preparing for the upcoming school year. This Wednesday, during Hornet Time we start our upcoming scheduling discussion for our current Juniors. Be sure to read below in our Guidance portion for the timelines for student scheduling.


I hope everyone has a great month, and please don’t hesitate to contact me at the school with any questions or concerns.


Have a great day and Go Hornets!

ATTENTION JUNIORS

All juniors will take an official SAT as part of the MME (Michigan Merit Examination) on April 9, 2019. This is a reportable score for colleges. There is no fee for students for this April 2019 sitting of the SAT nor is there a need to register. All juniors are required by the State of Michigan to take the SAT in April 2019. There will be announcements notifying students of the dates, times and location of testing.


Transcript Requests

All high school transcripts will be issued electronically. Current students and alumni need to go to www.parchment.com to create an account. To view a tutorial on setting up a parchment account, please go to http://www.parchment.com/studentkit/. Once you have created an account, then request your transcript from Saline High School and then send it to your destinations and continue on to checkout. Please note that the Parchment Transcript does NOT contain any standardized testing scores. Test scores need to be sent directly from the testing agency. Go to www.actstudent.org (ACT) or www.collegeboard.com (SAT) to request these scores.

Members of German club traveled to Chicago December 7 to experience the Christkindlmarkt. German vendors outfitted Daley Plaza with booths filled with traditional holiday wares and food. Students started their field trip at Millennium park and then explored the Christkindlmarkt. They viewed a piece of the Berlin Wall, located at the Western Brown Line CTA station, and visited the D.A.N.K. Haus (Deutscher-Amerikanischer National Kongress), a German-American cultural museum.
