Saura Weekly Updates - December 10, 2017

We hope everyone made it home safely and enjoyed the beautiful snowfall this weekend.  The first semester is quickly coming to an end and we want to remind everyone the importance of being in class and completing all assignments on time.  With the holidays approaching, we realize our days and night become much busier.  Please help us in encouraging students not to lose focus as the grading period comes to a close.  As you all know, events for this weekend were cancelled or postponed.  You can see some of these events rescheduled in this week's schedule.

South Stokes Santa Shop
The Santa Shop has been rescheduled for this coming Saturday, December 16, from 9:00 am until Noon.  We have at least ten vendors rescheduled for the weekend and hope you'll come out and do some shopping before attending the parade in Walnut Cove (which was also rescheduled for the 16th at 2:00 pm).  Santa and Mrs. Claus are scheduled to be at the Santa Shop as well!

Barnes & Noble SSHS Bookfair
The Barnes & Noble Bookfair benefitting South Stokes will also be on Saturday, December 16.  Students will be on hand to wrap your gift purchases and our theatre and chorus students will be performing.  We hope you'll make it to Winston-Salem to visit with our staff and students at the Bookfair.  

Yearbook Information
Don't forget that the price of yearbooks will go up to $75 during second semester.  Order yours now to get the reduced price of $65.  Your can purchase yearbooks online at or at school.   

Senior Ad information was sent home recently.  If you are interested in purchasing a senior ad to commemorate your senior year, you can create them online or bring the information to school.  See Ms. Alyssa Smith in D6/C7 for complete information.
