Saura Weekly Updates - November 26, 2017

I hope everyone had an opportunity to rest and spend time with family over Thanksgiving!  A special thank you to our Beta Club for helping families during the holidays!

Spirit Week & Fall Raffle RUSH
This week we will be having Winter Spirit Week as we host our first two home basketball games of the season.  On Tuesday night our team will playMcMichael and Friday night West Stokes will be at South.  Friday night we will also be doing our drawing for the Fall Raffle RUSH.  Nineteen winners will walk away with some fabulous prizes.  If you have not purchased your tickets, you can get them at school or online at  Look for other special buys at the basketball games Tuesday and Friday as well.

Themes for each day:

Monday - Baby It's Cold Outside - Favorite Winter PJs
Tuesday - Netflix Binge - Favorite Winter Character
Wednesday - Winter Wonderland - Favorite Snow Outfit
Thursday - National Lampoon! - Favorite Ugly Sweater
Friday - Saura Pride Day

Enrichment will begin this Friday and continue through February leading up the ACT on February 27.  Enrichment allows us to build ACT/SAT test prep into the school day for sophomores and juniors, provides time for seniors to learn important skills such as financial management and interview skills, and time to teach ninth graders skills needed to be successful in high school such as writing and study skills.
