Saura Weekly Updates - January 26, 2020

Second semester is off to a great start!  Be sure to check out some of the pictures from the week below and on social media.


Career & College Day - February 11

South Stokes will be holding a Career & College Day for all students on February 11, 2020.  Each grade level will be participating in readiness activities that day.  

Seniors - Life Skills Courses with Guest Speakers and WorkKeys Study Tips
Seniors helped select topics important to them for after high school such as managing finances, how to study in college, information on trade programs at Forsyth Tech, grocery shopping on a budget, basic car care, types of insurance and many more!

Juniors - All juniors will be taking the ACT on February 25.  Not only does the ACT help with admission to four-year colleges and universities, but the scores can also be used to place into coursework at the community college.  South Stokes has contracted with a professional organization skilled in preparing students for the ACT to provide an ACT workshop on that day.  

Freshmen & Sophomores - Juniors and seniors usually go on college tours, but we want to have our students start early!  Freshmen and sophomores have been offered six different tours to choose from on February 11:  Appalachian State; NC State; Winston-Salem State & Forsyth Tech; UNC-Charlotte; UNC-Greensboro & Greensboro College; and Rockingham Community & Guilford Tech.  More information and permission slips will be coming home this week.

We look forward to a great day helping students plan for the future!
