Saura Weekly Updates - October 8, 2017

It was an extremely busy week at South with a full slate of activities leading up to Homecoming.  Here's a quick recap:
  • Thank you to all the families who came out this past week for Parent Teacher Conferences.  If you were not able to attend, but would like to talk with your child's teachers about their progress thus far, please be sure to email them or call the school.  
  • Be sure to ask your sophomore, junior or senior about the College Fair we held on Wednesday.  We saw students asking great questions and leaving the fair with information about schools they were interested in.
  • Thank you to the SGA, FFA, cheerleaders, teachers, parents, and students for coming out to support the Sauras on Friday.  The RUSH for Food was a big success with the Main St, King team coming in 2nd place and the team at the Mountainview Food Lion placing first!  A special thank you to our shoppers Sarah Birkholz, Edward Byers, Hannah King, and Austin Lilly! Mid-day our first Homecoming Carnival was a great afternoon and we finished the evening with a pre-game concert by Jukebox Rehab featuring alum Jon Montgomery and our homecoming festivities at Friday night's game.

Homecoming 2017

Congratulations to our 2017 Homecoming Queen, Mallory Tedder; Homecoming Princess Autumn Burchette, and Miss Congeniality Ashleigh Washburn and to the rest of our Homecoming Court for representing our school!  We are proud of you all.
