A WORD FROM THE SENIOR ADVISER
Good Morning Seniors and Senior Families,
I want to take a moment to wish you Happy Holidays and a joyful New Year. It is a pleasure working with your students and I look forward to helping them towards graduation day on June 6, 2020. If you feel so inclined, I have included a few items that are on my wish list this season. :-)
Mrs. Wilbanks’ Holiday Wish List...
Seniors, please take time to catch up on class work. When we return from break, there are only 14 school days left until the end of first semester. In addition, if you have any online/credit recovery courses to work on, please find time to do that. The Grad Point link can be accessed from home on the school’s web page (scroll towards the bottom of the page): https://mlhs.mlsd.org/apps/
Work on Dollars for Scholars Applications: Remember, we had the opportunity to start these applications in Senior History classes at the end of November, but many students will need to continue working on their applications. The due date will be April 1, 2020. Please visit this site for more information or to start an application:
FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid- used by 2-year/4-year colleges and other technical/training programs that accept aid).
Many students have told me they haven’t submitted their FAFSA applications yet. Please remember, that institutions will have a FAFSA priority deadline (many in January, 2020). In addition, when the money is gone, it is gone. So, don’t delay in getting your FAFSA submitted! If you have questions, don’t hesitate to call their hotline at 1-800-433-3243. Both parents and students need to be a part of this.
Here is the official website: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/
College applications: Don’t forget to apply! Many deadlines are coming up in January and February. Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to request transcripts at this site: https://mlhs.mlsd.org/apps/
Order Senior Sweats: These sweats are still available to purchase and 20% of the proceeds will come back to the senior class. These sweats are unique to Medical Lake High School and include the signatures of all seniors on the back of each item (excluding sweat pants).
