Saura Weekly Updates

March 5, 2017

Mr. Hall Interim AP
Paul Hall has been named interim assistant principal for the remainder of the school year.  Mrs. Emily Goins who has been split between South Stokes and Poplar Springs all year will now be serving at Poplar Springs and King Elementary.  While we are glad to regain our full-time administrative position, we were sad to see Mrs. Goins go.  Mr. Hall received his degree in administration from Appalachian State University and we are happy that he has agreed to serve as interim until we conduct interviews in June.
