NWEA Testing

All students will be testing in the next couple weeks to establish some individual learning goals. Please encourage your students to do their best, but not to be anxious about theses tests. The purpose of these tests is to help their teachers teach them even better and to move them as far as they can go this year. Students should work hard, but they should not worry. Your best is always good enough.

A Word about Student Safety

Flag Raising Ceremony

The new year has begun at Salina Elementary. Lt.Col. Gates once again generously visited us to help us raise our flag properly. Each student promised to do his or her best this year. The students were asked to think in silence of one goal they have for this year as the flag was raised. We are proud to live in a country where we can achieve our best if we work hard. Lt. Col Gates lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. We listened to the Star Spangled Banner and sang America the Beautiful, which we sing each morning as a school when we recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Mrs. Stanley, LT.Col. Gates and Mr. Mike raise the flag on the new school year.

Chief Hadad Asks for Community Support

Chief Hadad is asking for community support to reduce the number of assaults in Dearborn. Please read his message below.

July 14, 2014

Recently, we have seen an increase in the amount of assault & Battery incidents throughout the community. These are violent and potentially fatal acts that can be devastating to not only the persons involved but also family members and the community as a whole. A recent review of the latest crime statistics reveals an increase of 6% in Assault and Battery incidents from 2013.
As Chief of Police, I am using all resources available to make the community aware of this situation. Officers from the Dearborn Police Department will be proactively addressing all assault and battery incidents. It is important to note the serious consequences of committing an assault, which include up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine, as well the possibility of civil lawsuits. Bonds for release from jail have also been increased.
Many times family members experience stress and conflict in the household that can lead to a physical altercation. Residents are encouraged to seek assistance from social service agencies such as ACCESS (313-842-7010) and First Step (888-453-5900). These agencies can provide conflict resolution, anger management and other counseling services. Parents can also seek assistance with the school district. They also offer student conflict resolution, anti-bullying information and counseling.
The Dearborn Police Department is committed to public safety and enhancing the quality of life for all. By working together we can make an impact regarding this serious community concern.
PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH OUR RESIDENTS. As always contact me with any questions at 313.943.2235.
Thank you for your continued support.

Ronald Haddad
Chief of Police
