Saura Weekly Updates - September 24, 2017

Homecoming Day - Come Join the Sauras!
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!

The PSAT will be administered Wednesday, October 11 at South Stokes.  The cost is $15 and all sophomores and juniors planning to apply to four-year colleges are encouraged to take the test.  Register and pick up a study guide by September 29 by visiting your counselor.

South Stokes 2nd Annual Color Run - Cancelled
Unfortunately, we had to cancel the Color Run scheduled for September 30.  Please look for other opportunities to support your Sauras this fall.

Students who still need their Chromebook are encouraged to talk with Mrs. Cheek, Mrs. Himmelspach, Mrs. Campbell, or Ms. Elliott to make arrangements for pick-up.

Important Breakfast & Lunch Information 
Be sure to complete free and reduced lunch applications to determine continued eligibility.  Students who received free or reduced lunch year who have not re-submitted an application will be required to pay beginning October 11.  New forms were sent home Friday with students who were eligible last year.
