Saura Weekly Updates - May 6, 2018

Congratulations to all of our Sauras on their accomplishments this week.  It was a good week for many of our students as we finished up conference games and tournaments, acted in plays, attended Special Olympics and much more.  I hope you were able to come out and see The Lion King Jr. this weekend.  Our theatre department did a great job building sets, making costumes, and putting on the show!  Be on the lookout this week for sports playoff schedules that will be set soon.

Relay for Life Donations
Our Penny Wars for Relay for Life will continue this week.  Ninth graders and staff are ahead at the moment and the winning grade level will win an extended break and slushie social.  Students are encouraged to drop change in the buckets in the office or during lunch in the cafeteria.  Penny War donations will be accepted through Thursday, May 10.  Then we hope you will come out and join us on Friday night, May 11 for Relay for Life here at South Stokes.  The event will begin around 6:00 pm and run until midnight.
