Vision Screening Info
I just wanted to let you know that our vision screening for ALL 9th graders (and any 504 or IEP students that may need it) will be happening the first week of November. Remember that this vision test is not a substitute for a full eye exam or vision evaluation by a doctor. It will not diagnose or prescribe treatments. If you DO NOT want your student's vision tested, please see the attachment below and return it to the front office, or send it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)
The Western Undergraduate Exchange allows students to attend out-of-state schools in western states at just 1.5x the cost of resident tuition instead of the much higher non-resident tuition. For example, if you wanted to attend Colorado State University, you could pay the WUE tuition of $18,369 per year instead of the out-of-state tuition of $28,147! Or how about paying $5,895 per year instead of $10,350 to attend the University of Hawaii Maui College? Click here for more information about the WUE program and here to browse the participating schools. Even if you're not a senior right now, this is a great time to look into the participating schools-- maybe you have more options than you think!
Scholarship tip: Banks and credit unions sometimes offer scholarships!
Some banks and credit unions offer scholarships to their members or clients! Search the name of your bank or credit union + "scholarship" to see what is available. Here are two examples from Cyprus Credit Union and Mountain America Credit Union, plus this scholarship from Wells Fargo specifically for students with disabilities.
