Tyngsborough Public Schools
October 6, 2017
Projects in Engineering students have been hard at work creating a Rube Goldberg machine to make ice cream sundaes. Each piece of the machine had to meet certain specifications and requirements. Sophomores in ELA have been studying transcendentalism and will be traveling to Walden Pond next week to make connections to Thoreau's famous writing Walden Pond. Also this week members of the senior class have been busy meeting with college representatives. Representatives from Umass-Lowell, Westfield State, Framingham State, Boston University, Alabama, Saint Michaels, UMaine and Middlesex Community College all presented to interested seniors on what their school has to offer.
Have a great long weekend!

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application is now available to complete. This application can be found at fafsa.gov. The FAFSA is the most important application in the financial aid process. All colleges and universities will require the FAFSA before determining a financial aid award. Colleges may also require students to complete a CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE (profileonline.collegeboard.org) and/or a college specific financial aid application. It is important to be aware of each college's financial aid deadlines - missing deadlines could result in missing out on financial aid. For more information on the financial aid process please visit mefa.org.
FAFSA Day Massachusetts is a non-profit, volunteer driven program providing free assistance to students and families seeking to complete the FAFSA. These events will be taking place in high schools, colleges, and libraries across the Commonwealth and will provide one-on-one, step-by-step assistance for families completing the FAFSA.
