Hello, families!


Please check your mail for the updated transcript; Chris mailed those out earlier this week.

Yearbooks

The yearbook committee is hard at work on creating this year's yearbook. Information has already been sent to students on how to purchase their yearbook.


FAFSA

Seniors should be completing (if you haven't already) the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (see also FAFSA Information below.)

The deadline for completing is March 2, but completing it sooner is better than later as some schools are "first-come, first-served."

Also check out the Cash for College Workshop -- there are three remaining workshops:

Feb.17 at Woodside HS, 7-9pm

Feb.20 at Sequoia HS, 8:30am-12:30pm

Feb.23 at Menlo-Atherton HS, 7-9pm

Recruiting

We are still recruiting for next year's class. We are looking for 60 new juniors and 5-10 new seniors to join MC. Our remaining information meetings are Wednesday 2/17 at Cañada, and Tuesday 3/1 at SUHSD. The meetings are from 6:30-7:30pm. If you know of any sophomores who might be interested in MC, please send them the flyer linked below or let them know about our upcoming information meetings. YOU are our best source of publicity!

Thank you!
