High School Counselor’s News:
FAFSA-Please be careful when you apply for financial aid. There is another site which is fafsa.com, but they charge you $80 to do the same thing the “real” site does for free. The correct site is: fafsa.ed.gov. This is the site administered by the government.
State of Mississippi Financial Aid-Seniors may apply for the MTAG, MESG, HELP, Nissan Scholarship, and the Summer Developmental Grant by going to: www.mississippi.edu/financialaid. There is a single application for all state aid.
Yearbook photos: We now have another email address to send senior photos for the yearbook. Seniors, please have you photographer send your choice for your yearbook photo to: firstname.lastname@example.org. All seniors should have had senior pictures made by now. Please check with me if you have any questions.
Selective Service-Male students are required to register with the Selective Service by their 18th birthday. This is not an option-it is the law! You may complete the registration at the post office or go to: www.sss.gov. By failing to do this, you will not be eligible for any type of government programs, jobs, loans, etc., but more importantly, you could be sent to prison for 5 years and fined $250,000.
ACT On Line Prep Students in grades 9-12 have been given a username and password to log-on to the following site: https://actonlineprep.act.org. You may change your username and password once you have logged on. This gives access to ACT practice questions and tests. Please call Penny Daggett if you have any questions.

Seniors: Please remember to bring me a copy of any/all scholarship offers you have received. Even if you are not accepting the scholarships, please bring copy. These figures will be used to get the total amount offered to your class.

Letter jackets- The Neff man will be here on Thursday, May 16 at 2:00 to take orders for letter jackets. If you are not sure if you lettered, please check with your coach. Just because you played a sport does not mean you lettered. A basic jacket starts at around $100. If you order any patches or a jacket, you must pay before order can be processed.
Scholarships offered-Seniors, I still do not have copies from some of you about any scholarships offered. I am working on Honor’s Night and I MUST have this information ASAP.
