Registration for 2017-2018

The 2017-2018 Course Selection Guide can be found at http://www.stokes.k12.nc.us/pdf/HSCourseSelectionGuide.pdf.  We invite everyone to join us Thursday night, February 16 from 6:00-7:30 pm for our Curriculum Fair.  This is the perfect time to learn more about the courses we offer, talk with teachers about curriculum, and explore elective course offerings.  Although it's only February, registration for next year's classes will be complete soon.  We encourage students to carefully select their courses each year to help them be prepared for their college and career plans.  If you have questions about what courses students should take, please contact our counselors.



Athletic Boosters - Cash Drawing
Tickets are now available for the Booster's $10,000 cash drawing.  Tickets are $100 and include dinner for two.  The drawing will be held Saturday, March 18, 2017.  Tickets can be purchased from a booster member or in the school office.


Bus Driver Appreciation Week
February 13-17 is bus driver appreciation week.  Please help us show our bus drivers how much we appreciate their help in getting our students to and from school safely each day!





2nd Semester: 
Keeping Up-to-Date on Your Child's Academic Progress
This week teachers will be sending home progress reports with your child.  If you would like to schedule a parent/teacher conference with your child's teacher, please contact the teacher by email or calling the school.  When reviewing your child's progress reports, please take notice of whether the teacher is requesting a conference about your child's progress.  It is only by working together that we can best support your child in high school!
