Saura Weekly Updates - December 17, 2017

It was a busy week and we want to thank everyone who came out and supported the Sauras!

This upcoming week is a short one with an early dismissal on Wednesday.  Students will be dismissed at 12:30 and school will resume on Tuesday, January 2.  Grades should be updated in PowerSchool by Wednesday and we hope everyone will check on their progress as the first semester is drawing to a close.  We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday break!

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.
