Senior Bulletin

March 2014

Dear Parents/Guardians/Students,

Just over two months until the big day...May 19th! We hope this bulletin provides you with the up to date information you are need in order to ensure a smooth transition from high school to post-secondary; however, if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

There's still time to sign up for the ACT...

If you haven't yet taken the ACT or haven't received the score you would like (for us - that's a 22), you should be signed up for the April 12th ACT. The deadline is Friday, March 7th. This is the most important step in your post-secondary college planning!

FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

The deadline for submitting your FAFSA is April 1, 2014. Time is ticking...
If your parents have completed their income taxes, then you can use the IRS retrieval system to input their information into your partially finished FAFSA. If you have questions about the FASA, stop by and see Mrs. Roe.

Transcript Requests

If you need official copies of your transcripts sent to the colleges/universities of your choice, see Mrs. Hilton in the Counseling Center. She cannot send transcripts without your written permission.

Don't Forget!

Please turn in a copy of your college/military acceptance letters to Mrs. Roe in order to be eligible to participate in Decision Day 2014 activities. Stay tuned for more info...
