Remind Homework Texts
The main objective for Focus is to provide students with an opportunity to complete the required student Portfolio. Senior Focus will not only provide time for Portfolios but it will provide time for Class Meetings, Fundraising, Future Planning, Looking into College, Applying for Scholarships and Financial Aid, as well as tracking progress toward graduation.
This is a link to the for students section of the Butte Falls School District website where you will find all the documents necessary to complete your senior portfolio.
Butte Falls CRLE PAcket
This packet can be used to replace the CRLE documents on the school website. These forms are used for events/field trip attendance.
OSAC Scholarship Application
All types of scholarships are available to you by completeing the OSAC. Many are based on criteria such as, the high school you attended, your academic interests, your school and community activities, or your career goals. Some require a minimum GPA and others require no GPA whatsoever. There are more than 475 scholarships and you may qualify! But you won't know unless you apply. Deadline March 1
Fafsa pin website
This website below allows you apply for a PIN number. With this number you will be able to apply for Federal Financial Aid. Both you and your parents will need to apply for a pin.
FAFSa (Federal Aid Application)
By completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) you will have access to Federal Student Aid/Grants. This application is your only way to apply for the Pell Grant and the Oregon Opportunity Grant.
I will attempt to send out a reminder text each week, typically on Wednesday evening of what homework is due the following day. To sign up to receive these text you will follow the instructions on the link below.
