SENIORS: It is FAFSA time. What does that mean? It means that for you to get FREE money for college or technical school you must fill out the FAFSA document online. Go to FAFSA.GOV, use your last year's tax information and then update it when you/your parents get this year's done. It is important to get this done ASAP if you want to get in line for the free money.
IN THE SPIRIT OF FAFSA, Mrs. Povse is offering $25 cash. To win the cash, put the words FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID, ALONG WITH YOUR NAME ON A SLIP OF PAPER AND PUT IT IN THE ENVELOPE ON MRS. POVSE'S DOOR. A DRAWING FOR THE $25 WILL BE HELD NEXT THURSDAY, FEB. 6
Males who are applying for FAFSA and who are 18 must also register with the Selective Service System. Go to sss.gov and register.

Make Plans to attend the 7th Annual Red and Black Gala, hosted by the Springfield High Booster club, scheduled for March 8th at the Springfield Hilton. All parents, alumnae and friends of SHS are invited to attend. Last year this one night netted close to $45,000 to support the many student clubs, athletics and other extracurricular activities. This is a great event and a wonderful place to connect with other SHS families and supporters and support these extra-curriculars.
