Saura Weekly Updates - October 1, 2017

It is going to be an extremely busy week at South with lots of exciting events going on.

Saura Spirit Week & Homecoming Day Events - Come Join the Sauras!
This week will be Spirit Week as we gear up for Homecoming.  Students are encouraged to show their Saura Spirit on

Wednesday - Country (Redneck) vs. Country Club (Prep)

Please remember that all outfits must meet dress code.  

Friday, October 6 is a teacher workday, but it's going to be a full day for the Sauras.  First at 7:00 am at the Food Lion stores in King, our students will be competing in the RUSH for Food sponsored by the Rotary Club of King and Food Lion Stores.  Come watch our team of students take on teams from North Stokes, West Stokes, and Stokes Early College as they shop for food for the outreach ministries in Stokes County. From Noon until 2:00 pm we will be hosting a free Homecoming Carnival and Concert by Jon Montgomery at South.  Game tickets will be available for games and contests.  We'll wrap up the day with Homecoming at 7:30 pm that evening.  Mark your calendars now for October 6 and the week leading up to Homecoming when we will be collecting canned goods to add to our teams' RUSH purchases.  More details to follow!

South Stokes will be holding Parent/Teacher Conferences on Monday evening from 5:00-7:00 pm.  Please be sure to come by and check-in with your child's teachers to get an update on their progress to this point in the school year.
