CHS STUDENTS OF THE MONTH

CHS JAZZ BAND PERFORMS AT THE SAN TAN VALLEY VETERAN CENTER

On Sunday, 3 of CHS Jazz Band students - Andrew Palmer (sax), Ben Gardner (trumpet), and Jakob Turner-Fong (guitar)- gave a performance at the San Tan Valley Veteran Center.


The kids killed it and the audience was so happy to have live music in their community center. For a lot of Vets that come to the center, the only interaction they have with other people is once a week on bingo day. It was such an honor to bring live music into their lives and give them a reason to hang around a little while longer.

COUNSELORS CORNER

Did you know??? The end of the school year tends to be stressful for students of all levels. Seniors are trying to wrap up their projects, finish classes to get their credits, and trying to figure out their post-secondary plans while Juniors are starting to look at colleges and scholarships and planning for Senior year, and our Sophomores and Freshmen are working hard to finish the year successfully. Stress can have some negative side effects, so it's important to do a little self care during these last few weeks. Stop and take a breath, listen to soothing music, exercise, take a nap, do something you love, and if needed, talk to a friend or trusted adult. Taking simple steps to reduce stress and tension will go a long way to helping you stay calm and keeping you on track.


Seniors, don't forget that several scholarships have been added to the CHS Counseling webpage. Many of them have due dates that are quickly approaching, so don't forget to get your application in!

PROMISE FOR THE FUTURE

Dear Pinal County High Schools,

Just a reminder that we are no longer requesting senior lists for the Promise for the Future Scholarship program. However, we are inviting your graduating seniors who submitted their Promise Pledge in their 8th grade year to visit our Central Arizona College (CAC) webpage at www.centralaz.edu/finaid . Under the Scholarship information heading, students will find the Promise for the Future tab. There, students will be able to review the guidelines and will be able to directly access the application form for the Promise for the Future scholarship program.

Students are to complete and submit the online CAC Scholarship Application. The form will ask Promise questions, and ask students to write an essay regarding their educational goals. Combining the CAC Scholarship application with the Promise for the Future scholarship provides Promise students the opportunity to be considered for other CAC scholarships.

In addition to the form, students are required to upload their high school transcript onto their CAC student portal. The high school transcript allows us to verify and determine eligibility to the Promise scholarship program. Students are also required to complete and submit a 2021-2022 FAFSA application.

Once the CAC Financial Aid Office determines eligibility, we will email students the Promise Scholarship acceptance letter outlining enrollment requirements.

Feel free to visit our webpage and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
