Saura Weekly Updates - January 20, 2018

Thank you all for your help in making this past week successful!  Students were at school on time for exams and we have very few students who will need to makeup exams next week.  

Monday will be a holiday for students and staff before we return to school on Tuesday for the start of second semester.  Students will report to homeroom when the bell rings to get copies of their second semester schedules.

PSAT & Financial Aid Night
Thursday, January 24 counselors will be holding a floating workshop from 5:00-7:00 in the media center. Seniors and their parents that still need to file their FAFSA application are encouraged to come. Remember to bring 2017 tax returns and W2's for both parents and the student. 

Sophomores and Juniors that took the PSAT in October will be able to pick up their test scores and test book. A brief presentation will be held at 5:00 and again at 6:00 about how to interpret those scores and what student next steps are.
