The FAFSA, (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is something that all graduating Seniors need to fill out if they plan on attending a College, University or Trade School next year. In addition, the FAFSA completion or the completion of State Non-Participation form must be done to meet an Illinois Graduation Requirement. Currently, there is no date for the FAFSA to become available, however when it is announced, we will be planning a FAFSA completion night here at the high school. To prepare for that, I have begun meeting with students to help them get ID's in order to complete the FAFSA process. Both students and parents will need there ID's and I have will be posting the link to the information you will need in order to create those ID's. These ID's must be made and verified several days ahead of actually completing the FAFSA forms. https://studentaid.gov/help-center/answers/article/how-to-create-fsa-id-username-password Again we will have a FAFSA completion night here at the school, but that date will be announced later.

Just a reminder that Wednesday, September 20th is a half day for students. As always, elementary will begin dismissing students for pick up at 10:45. This is always posted on our school calendar, the school website, listed on the lunch menu, and on the teacher's weekly planners that are sent home.
Illinois State Representative Patrick Windhorst visited this group of outstanding readers today. They all completed his Summer Reading Club by reading at least 8 books over the summer. They received a certificate, a coupon for free custard at Culver's, and a coupon for donuts from Krispy Kreme. We always enjoy when he comes to talk to our kids and recognize their achievements. The students who participated include: Dallas Glaser, Evelyn Mann, Logan Martin, Hazel Dobyns, Haidyn Dobyns, Jameson Drone, Jackson Drone, Asher Pierce, Jason Wollard, and Mason Wollard.
We are proud of these kids! Great work!
Mark your calendars, September 14th is picture day!
Did someone say they wanted a picture of the entire elementary? Challenge accepted! Getting 288 kids into one space long enough to get a picture was definitely that, but we did it! Happy Hawk Pride Friday from the elementary students and staff! I do think I have way more staff than what is in this picture. Don’t worry though, I will get them when they least expect it. 😉
Mrs. Jackson’s class ended our special color days with Favorite Color Day today! They made crayon crowns and a Favorite Color graph. Blue won!
