9/5/19 Saline DI Weekly Update:

Hi Saline DI families,

Welcome to the new Saline Middle School families that we met last night at the SMS Open House!

Join us this Saturday, September 7th at NOON for an Ice Cream Social at Liberty School (7265 N Ann Arbor St, Saline, MI 48176.)  Please use the main SAS Admin entrance NW corner of Liberty and look for the check-in table.  Follow the signs to the Courtyard.  Ice Cream will be served at NOON in the OUTDOOR COURTYARD.  Here's the SignupGenius link to sign up to help work the event and/or RSVP your attendance by what topping you'll bring!  Sign up here:   https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0848aeae2fa64-icecream

Ice Cream Social/DI Huddle Schedule of Events:

Next up will be our Fall Saline DI Car Wash Fundraiser at the Saline Middle School!  This typically generates between $500-1,000 for our organization to use directly towards programs that benefit your child.  Sign up with your family to help out for a 2-hr shift.  We need volunteers to help staff this event.  To meet new people and volunteer, please sign up here:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c45a9af238-saline6.
