Saura Weekly Updates - October 14, 2018

Thank you again to all of our Saura students, families, and staff for their patience and assistance during our dismissal on Thursday.  It was a very unusual method for dismissal and it took everyone working together to get students home safely!

This week will be an exciting and busy week with Spirit Week, College Application Week, and Homecoming.  Students and staff are encouraged to participate in Spirit Week which will culminate in a pep rally and Homecoming on Friday, October 19.  We hope everyone will come out and help us cheer on our Sauras Friday evening!  

There are also events going on this week for College Application Week.  We encourage seniors and their parents to come Thursday evening between 5:30 and 7:00 pm for FAFSA Night.  Counselors and staff will be on hand to help families complete this important step to help secure financial aid for college.  For more information, please contact Mrs. Sawyer or Ms. Bowman.
