**FAFSA Reminder for Seniors . . . Don’t forget that the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for current seniors becomes available on January 1, 2015. It is important to fill this form out and submit it early in January if you are going to attend college next fall. Do Not Wait because grant dollars run out quickly and we don’t want SCHS students who are eligible for aid to miss out on getting money to help pay for college. You and a parent will also need to apply for a PIN number to complete the form (a PIN link is on the FAFSA website). Visit www.fafsa.ed.gov and look for the 2015-2016 FAFSA form!! Talk with your school counselor if you have questions.
**Reminder that NHS is still offering tutoring on Mondays and Thursdays in room 173 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. This is for ALL subjects here at the high school AND subjects at ECS. This is also a great opportunity to get a jump start on ACT Prep. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Green.
**The website for ordering yearbooks is active and books can be pre-ordered now for the best price. The address is www.smart-pay.com.
