Senior Meetings

The last few days I have been meeting with all of the seniors either one on one or in groups of 2 or 3.  This is an opportunity to discuss financial aid, scholarships, registration at their college, finding out where they are headed after graduation and lastly an opportunity to ask any questions they may have.  Today I will be completing these meetings.  I invite the parents to contact me if they still have not filled out the FAFSA (free application for financial aid) as it is ideal to have this completed by early March.  If you are a parent to a senior, please take some time to discuss this brief meeting with them and ask to see the materials I shared with them as well.
