Saura Weekly Updates - January 19, 2020

Thank you to all our students, families, and staff for a great first semester!  Students did a great job last week completing their exams!  Second semester classes begin on Wednesday.  Students will report to Homeroom at the beginning of the day to pick up schedules for second semester.  Be sure to look for information from their teachers to come home early in the semester so you can learn about your students' classes.  Be sure to contact teachers if you have any questions.

2020 Stokes County 
Special Olympics

Special Olympics will be held at South Stokes on April 24, 2020.  The planning committee is holding an information fair on Saturday, January 26 in the cafeteria at South Stokes. Families and athletes are invited to come and learn about Special Olympics and community events for student athletes. Individuals who are interested in volunteering are also invited to learn about opportunities to assist with Special Olympics and to join in the planning.

Due to numerous deployed military service members around the Fort Bragg area, Stokes County Schools is partnering with Harnett County Schools to collect items that will be sent to troops overseas. South Stokes will be collecting items until Thursday, January 23. No items will be collected after Thursday, January 23 as they will be shipped out. Thank you for your support!
