Saura Weekly Updates

January 22, 2017

Students completed their exams and first semester is now in the books!  Report cards will come home on Tuesday, January 31.  Students should review their high school progress to this point and set goals that will help them be successful in the future.  Whether our students plan to go on to college, the workforce, or the military high school is an important step in getting ready!

Chromebooks are here!!
Thank you to everyone who came out to our Chromebook deployment meetings last week!  We are very excited about this opportunity and our teachers a  There will be a makeup parent meeting on Thursday at 9:00 am in the media center.  Once parents attend, sign contracts, and pay the insurance/maintenance fee, students will receive their training and get their Chromebooks.  Please contact Mrs. Cheek if you have concerns about the fee or need to set up payment plans.
re glad that every student will now have access to technology in the classroom.  No more sharing computers or scheduling computer carts!  All of the information about our Chromebook initiative can be found at
