Saura Weekly Updates - October 6, 2019

2019 Homecoming Court
It was a short week, but a very busy one here at South!  Congratulations to our sophomores who had the best attendance for the month of September.  They enjoyed a few minutes of break during homeroom on Friday!

Coming up this week will be Spirit Week as we prepare for Homecoming.  We hope you will join us Friday evening for the home football game against Winston-Salem Prep beginning at 7:30 pm.  Our 2019 Homecoming Queen will be crowned at halftime.
