A senior meeting was held on Thursday, November 3, and the following items were discussed:
- Students were reminded to complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The application opened on October 1 this year, and this document is necessary to be eligible for any grants or financial aid for college. There are varying deadlines for colleges and universities, so students need to get this taken care of ASAP.
- I am using the Reminder app to make communication with seniors easier. Directions on how to join the Seniors 2017 class on the app were handed out, and seniors are encouraged to join. Texts coming from (717) 208-8824 are messages from me, so do not delete these without reading them.
- TVCC College Day on Nov. 10
- Be sure to get resume completed and be asking for letters of recommendation
- A limited number of Compendiums are available, and I have a copy that I will loan out. The Compendium contains college information as well as scholarship information.
- Senior T-Shirts- Mrs. Moultin asked that seniors come up with a design by November 7.
