Saura Weekly Updates - December 30, 2018















We hope everyone is enjoying their holiday break!  We look forward to seeing students back on Wednesday to start winding down the first semester of the 2018-2019 school year.






Yearbook Information!

Information about senior ads went home this past week.  There are several sizes for families who want to purchase a spot in the yearbook to commemorate their child's achievements.  You can also design the senior ad online at www.yearbookforever.com.  Ads are due by January 11.


Yearbooks are still on sale for $65, but will go up in price to $75 after first semester exams.  You can purchase a copy at school or online at www.yearbookforever.com.  Be sure to reserve your copy now before the price goes up in January.


Make-up Days

The Board of Education met on Friday afternoon and set the following make-up schedule for the missed days this past week.  Thursday, December 20 will now be a full student day, Friday, December 21 will now be a student day with an early dismissal at 12:30 pm. January 22, February 15, and February 18 will also now be student days. 





Get ready for the ACT!
All juniors will take the ACT in February.  This test measures college readiness and may be used for admission into four-year colleges and to help students place into courses at the community college.  ACT now has a free ACT Academy that allows students to sign up for an account and follow a personalized study plan to help prepare for the college entrance exam.  Research shows that students who practice for these tests tend to improve their scores so I encourage students to take advantage of this resource.  See a counselor for additional resources as well.

Saura Weekly Updates - December 2, 2018















This week was full of special events.

Congratulations to Mrs. Shiela Patterson who was named the Piedmont-Triad Teacher of the Year this past Monday!  Mrs. Patterson now goes on to compete for the North Carolina Teacher of the Year in February.   We are very excited for Mrs. Patterson and know she will represent our school, district and region well in the next round!

We'd like to say "Thank You" to Rod Cate, South Stokes graduate and author of "Get Back Up", for coming and sharing his story with our students on Friday.  Mr. Cate told his personal story a devastating injury in high school that changed his life forever.  His message to never give up was inspiring.  Thank you to Larry Hartle and Eddy McGee for their assistance in making this opportunity possible.
