What's Going on?

Last week and this week I have been meeting with all of the seniors. This is a time for them to ask any questions they may have about financial aid and applying for scholarships. It is important for seniors and parents to complete the FAFSA as most colleges will start sending out financial aid packages this week. The longer you wait to complete your FAFSA the less money there is available.

As you can tell there are A LOT of scholarships (on the right side of this web site) that are just for Melrose seniors. I have been telling the seniors about these scholarships, hopefully they will take the time to apply for this free money!

Lastly, on Thursday I will be giving the practice ACT writing test to all 10th graders. It is optional, so if you are a 10th grader and are not planning to go to a 2 or 4 year college you will need to fill out the letter that was sent home with you to be exempt. This is a good opportunity to learn about what you need to work on with your writing. Your 11th grade English teacher will be using the scores to best help you in your 11th grade English class.
