Congratulations to seniors Ethan Gacek and Alex Zhang, who advanced to become National Merit Finalists, based on their outstanding academic records and high test scores. Alex Zhang has also earned the distinction of being a nominee in the 2014 Presidential Scholars Program because of his stellar academics and test scores. Only 3,000 students in the entire country were selected to be nominees in the Presidential Scholars Program.
Presentations were made to all AP sections to hand out AP test registration materials. Students may register for their AP exams now through February 28 to pay the regular fee, and then through March 11 to pay the extra fee. NO REGISTRATION FORMS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER MARCH 11. Click here for another form in case your student needs another one.
All seniors who turned in a request to have their GPA verified and uploaded electronically to be considered for a Cal Grant: the registrar will be completing that process this week.
All seniors who did NOT turn in the form but who are still interested in a Cal Grant: print out the attached form, fill it out, and bring it into Mrs. Teager in the Guidance Office, who will complete the bottom portion. You will then need to mail it in to the California Student Aid Commission. Postmark deadline is March 2, 2014.
