Student Council Wants to know.....

It's Tax Time

Parents and Guardians, as you file your taxes this year, please remember that the legal guardian is the person who should claim a child on their taxes. We remind you of this now because we know that there are serious implications for students federal aid. This tax filing may have the ability to impact some of our current sophomores as they fill out the FAFSA.

Volunteer Opportunities - ALL STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE 10 HRS

From Ms. Broadway:

Order Your Yearbook Now

We are collecting yearbook preorders!


The cost of a yearbook is $45.


We are running a yearbook promo during Spirit Week. Students who dress out for all 5 days can purchase their yearbook at the original lowest price ($35).


Promotional cost will close the Friday after Spring Break (April 5), so that students have plenty of time to bring in their money.


**Note: This promo does NOT apply to students who have already purchased.


Books can be ordered at www.jostensyearbooks.com.

Transportation

BUSES

If you have any bus-related complaints throughout the year, please use this link to log your complaint. This is the way that CCSD tracks bus issues and shares them with Durham. I have found that when we use this form, there is generally a swift response.

Early College High School will develop intellectually confident and independent people who seize opportunity to continually better themselves, their communities, and the world.
