Saura Weekly Updates

February 5, 2017

Registration for 2017-2018 Approaches
It is almost time for students to register for classes for the 2017-2018 school year!  Counselors are beginning to work with students to select classes that meet graduation requirements and help prepare them for their goals after high school.  Curriculum Fair will be Thursday, February 16 from 6:00-7:30 pm for students and parents that want to talk with teachers about the courses offered at South Stokes, curriculum, and  course expectations.  Many of our career and technical education courses offer students the opportunity to earn certifications that may help with employment and achieving post-secondary goals.  We encourage everyone to come out and be informed about the many options available.
