Saura Weekly Updates - December 31, 2017




Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday break to this point.  Students will return on Tuesday to finish out first semester.  We hope they are rested and ready for a four-day review period before exams January 8-12.  The exam schedule and a few reminders are below.  




Exam Schedule
Exams will be January 8-12.  We will dismiss around 12:30 pm after testing is complete on exam days.

Monday, January 8 - 1st Period Exams
Tuesday, January 9 - 2nd Period Exams
Wednesday, January 10 - 3rd Period Exams
Thursday, January 11 - 4th Period Exams
Friday, January 12 - Make-up Exams

Students should make every effort to be present on exam days.  Students cannot receive credit for courses with state exams if they do not take the required exams.  We do have a few courses in PE, foreign language, arts and a couple of other elective courses that allow students to be exempt from the exam based on grades and absences.  Teachers of these courses will inform students of their exemption status.  


Yearbook Information
Don't forget that the price of yearbooks will go up to $75 during second semester.  Order yours now to get the reduced price of $65.  Your can purchase yearbooks online at yearbookforever.com or at school.   

Senior Ad information was sent home recently.  If you are interested in purchasing a senior ad to commemorate your senior year, you can create them online or bring the information to school.  See Ms. Alyssa Smith in D6/C7 for complete information.
