Please Support Our Annual Fund
The Annual Fund Campaign is our primary opportunity for school families to participate in the continued success of our school by helping to bridge the gap left by state and local funding. This fund supports existing educational programs, new curriculum development, improves facilities, and supports essential needs of Socrates Academy.
 
Join the Madness! March Madness!

Come Watch a Basketball Game!
Monday, February 3rd, come cheer on the Socrates Academy Middle School Boys Team as they face Trinity Episcopal at 4:15pm in the SA Gym.
Procedure Change for Lower Lot Dismissal
Going forward on rainy days, we are only going to call the cars we can actually load. This will alleviate students standing in the rain longer than necessary. However, this change does mean that carpool may go longer on rainy days. Please be patient with staff as we get students to the car in the safest way possible.

Identakid is Coming to Socrates Academy!

The Identakid service will be at the school  on Feb. 7th to photo, weigh, measure and fingerprint all participating children to create ID cards.  Please look for information/application forms to come home with your child this week and check out the website @  www.identakid.com  for more information, videos, and privacy info.  

Middle School students can use the ID as a Pre-Drivers ID card. This is a great way to stay connected with your child as he/she gains independence. The ID card is also a valid ID for travel, standardized testing, medical benefits, etc. Don't miss this once a year opportunity!
