Saura Weekly Updates

January 29, 2017

Final Week of Chromebook Distribution!!
Many of our classrooms are using Chromebooks regularly.  If your child would still like to receive a Chromebook, parents and guardians should contact the school Monday to schedule an appointment to complete training and sign contracts.  We hope to have all Chromebooks distributed by Wednesday for students who wish to have one.

Parents and guardians with questions or concerns about the Chromebooks or the insurance/maintenance fee, please call to discuss your options.

Students with questions about how to access documents offline or need assistance with using their Chromebook should see Mrs. Hiimmelspach or Mrs. Campbell in the media center.

Congratulations Saura Wrestlers!
Congratulations to our Saura wrestlers on big wins this past weekend!  The team tied for first in the regular season and won the Conference Tournament on Saturday!  Lowell Shotton, Manuel Espino, Steven Fatz, and Cooper Ross all won their weight classes and their teammates all placed in their respective weight classes.  Coach Amos was also named WPAC Wrestling Coach of the Year!  Good work guys!
