Senior Survey - Oct 2020
Seniors- We hope you all have been getting the many steps completed for your college applications and other post-secondary plans. We want to know what you have completed so far and what you might still need help with. Please complete the MMSD Formative Senior Survey - Oct 2020, so we can know how we can best support you.
Future Planning Weeks
Class of 2021 - It's time to start planning for your adventures after graduation from East High. Your School Counselors are here to help. We have put together two weeks of "Future Planning Workshops" for you to participate in during the weeks of October 12th and October 19th. Workshops will cover topics such as specific college applications, essays, voting, resumes, and apprenticeships. You are welcome to come to as many workshops as you can fit in your schedule. Workshop topics and zoom links can be found HERE. Contact your Counselor if you have any questions or need additional support. Your future is waiting - make it happen!
All seniors, regardless of your family's income, should complete this application, which will qualify you for grants, loans, scholarships and work-study. Many colleges require the FAFSA to be filled out in order to provide financial assistance or awards to students. The application is now open and should be completed as soon as possible. You'll need to register for an FSA ID prior to completing the FAFSA. Learn more here or talk to your school counselor. Get personalized help with your FAFSA Application by attending any of these Virtual College Goal Wisconsin FAFSA Completion Events.
