FAFSA day is this Friday, 10/19 in lab C-144. The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. If you are planning on attending college you need to fill this out. It not only determines eligibility for student loans, but also grants (money you don't have to pay back) and work study eligibility (employment and internships on campus). You will need the following documents in order to fill this out on Friday (if parent/guardian does not want to send information to school we can still fill out the student part and then you can do the rest at home with a parent or parent is welcome to come in for help): Student SS#, parent/guardian SS#, 2017 federal income tax return for both student and parent, and an FSA ID (create here: https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm).

Juniors/Seniors: please contact your guidance counselor if you are interested in obtaining a Work Ethic Certificate (WEC). It is a community developed and employer recognized certificate that can help provide a pipeline of skilled high school graduates into today’s workforce. These employability skills are designed to encourage students to meet the benchmarks that will assist them in their college or career goals.
