Student Health Survey
The Community School health survey will be available to 11th grade students in their focus classes on Wednesday November 18th.
The Oregon Student Health Survey (SHS) assesses school climate and the behavioral health of Oregon youth in grades 6, 8, and 11. The SHS provides students with the chance to tell us how they’re doing and where they need our support in the following area: Social Emotional Learning/Mental Health, Health Status, School Climate, Social Determinants of Health, Access and Opportunity, Risk and Assets.

News from the CUBE!
All students who plan to attend 4-year university or community college, need to apply for financial aid. Many of our seniors will qualify for grant money to help them pay for post-high school education. Grant money is not a loan, it doesn't need to be paid back. It's the best kind!
Seniors will be asking you for some help. They will need access to your 2019 tax information and you will need to sign their application.
These guides are my favorite resource on FAFSA because they are simple, helpful, and easy to understand. I encourage you to take a look!
If your student will file an ORSAA application, please watch this short informational video:
