High school seniors can apply now for college financial aid — and there are plenty of resources to help. “Cash for College” workshops are scheduled throughout the Sacramento area to help 12th-graders fill out applications for federal FAFSA and California Dream Act funds. Two of the workshops will be held in NUSD: At Natomas High on Thursday, Oct. 18, and at Inderkum High on Wednesday, Jan. 23.
Here’s a peek at some of the fun Wednesday at Natomas High School. Students had the opportunity to compete in an unusual mental and physical challenge emphasizing problem-solving, collaboration, team-building and leadership, assets valuable in college and many careers.
ALL seniors should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to receive financial aid from any college!
Natomas Unified anticipates buying new History-Social Science textbooks for use in all grades next year, and the district wants your feedback about finalists under consideration. Your opinions will help guide decisions that can impact classrooms for years to come. Upcoming Information Nights are available here.
