Student Progress

Be sure to stay informed of your student's progress on PowerSchool.  Parents and guardians can login to see grades, attendance and more on their mobile devices and computers.  If you do not have a PowerSchool login and would like access to your student's information, please contact Jill Tuttle at South Stokes.  If you have questions or concerns about their progress, be sure to attend Spring Semester Conferences or contact your student's teachers.

New Website & Climate Survey
Be sure to check out our new South Stokes website if you have not already.  While you're there, help us continue to grow and improve by completing the climate survey to help us identify areas of strengths and opportunities for growth within our school. A link to the survey is now available on the school website and below. We ask parents, families, and community members to provide insight into our school climate to help us identify areas in need of improvement. We value your feedback and will use it to plan for the future! Staff and students will also be completing surveys at school.


North Carolina School Report Cards 2018-2019
The North Carolina School Report Cards for the 2018-2019 school year are now available on the North Carolina School Report Card Website.  Students were given cards about the school report cards for more information.

The South Stokes Library will be open on Thursday, February 27 from 5:30-6:30 pm during Spring Semester Conferences for parents and community members who would like to use the school computers to complete the Climate Survey or view the 2018-2019 School Report Card. You are also welcome to visit during the school day to use school computers if needed. Please check in at the office and ask to access the survey and/or school report card.
