Saura Weekly Updates - February 25, 2018














Attention Juniors:  The ACT is Tuesday!


All juniors will take the ACT on Tuesday, February 27 beginning at 8:30 am.  The ACT tests students' college readiness and may be used when students apply to four-year colleges for admission or to place out of remedial reading and math courses at the community college.    Juniors should report to D building when the bell rings on Tuesday morning and are asked to bring a calculator to the test if they have one.  Free breakfast will be served in the cafeteria Tuesday morning for juniors and we encourage students to eat breakfast before the test.


Curriculum Fair & Registration for 2018-2019

South Stokes will hold its annual Curriculum Fair on Thursday, March 1 from 6:00-7:00 pm.  Rising 8th graders and their parents are invited to come and learn about course offerings and complete registration for the 2018-2019 school year.  Upperclassmen and their parents are also welcome to come and learn more about the required and elective courses offered at South.

Counselors are in the process of meeting with students to draft course requests for the upcoming school year.  For information about the courses offered at South Stokes, see the 2018-2019 High School Course Selection Guide.
