Saura Weekly Updates - February 24, 2019

2nd Semester Conferences & Planning for 2019-2020
Students are meeting with counselors to review their high school graduation plans and pre-register for classes for the 2019-2020 school year.  On February 28, we will host Parent/Teacher Conferences for second semester classes from 5:30-6:30 pm followed by the Curriculum Fair where you can learn more about the classes we offer at South Stokes.  Please plan to attend these events and join us in helping your child succeed this semester and plan for the upcoming year!

PSAT & Pre-ACT Results
The counselors have PSAT results for sophomores and juniors who took the test. Students should stop by and see their counselors to pick up results.  Also, sophomores will receive their Pre-ACT results with their report cards.  If you would like to know more about what these scores mean about college readiness, contact a counselor or bring your results to Parent/Teacher Conferences on February 28 and speak with a counselor or administrator.
