Community

The school store needs volunteers. Please contact Kelley Mills if interested kmills@gci.net

Are you interested in getting .5 elective credit for doing community service? There are many things you can do around town that would count, like volunteering at an elementary school, the Imaginarium or the zoo. Would you also like to work on a political campaign, Bean's Cafe or Kids' Kitchen? All of these things and many more will qualify. Please go talk to Ms Kole in room F112 for more information. If you've been working on your hours, make sure you check in as well to get them recorded!

Did you know that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA opens on January 1st for seniors who are thinking of pursuing higher education (college, vocational, technical schools)? This application allows you to qualify for Federal grants and loans, which will assist with their education after high school, and it is also the official application for the Alaska Performance Scholarship.

Please bring your family’s 2013 income tax return, your social security number (memorize your number)and if you have a personal laptop please bring it as we have limited computers available.
