Saura Weekly Updates - June 6, 2021


Thank you for your support during the 2020-2021 school year!  It was a difficult year for students, staff, and families and I am proud of the work we accomplished this year despite the difficult circumstances.  I hope everyone has a time to relax, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy our break this summer.  Much planning is going into the upcoming school year and we hope you'll check our website, Facebook page, and Twitter during the summer months to stay up-to-date with all that's going on at South.

We look forward to seeing you in August!

Report Cards
We continue to wait for some test scores from the state.  As soon as they arrive, we will finalize all grades and mail report cards home to students and families.  We hope they will arrive in mailboxes by the end of this week.

Chromebooks & Other School-Owned Materials
All students should return school-owned calculators, Chromebooks, chargers, hot spots, books, and other materials to the school.  Any devices not returned will be added to the fees owed list.

Summer Meals
Breakfast and lunch will be available free to students attending summer school and participating in the driver's education class in June.  Meals will also be available for pickup between the hours of 11:00 am and 1:00 pm at Chestnut Grove Middle School, Piney Grove Middle School, and Southeastern Stokes Middle School June 2nd-August 23rd.  Friday's pickup will also include meals for the weekend.  

Driver's Education
The next driver's education class will be held June 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 14 from 8:30 am - 1:30 pm at South Stokes in the auditorium.  The class roster for the next class is posted on the Driver's Ed page of the school website.   Students who will not be able to attend this class should contact Cindy Mitchell at South Stokes (336-994-2995).  Lunch and breakfast will be available for students attending.
