What: Financial Aid Night and Senior Parent Meeting
Who: WHS Seniors and All ECMC Scholars
When:Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 6:30
Where: WHS Powers Auditorium
Why: There are thousands of dollars available for you to go to college, but you have to know how to get it! The FAFSA has changed this year, so even if your family has applied for financial aid in previous years, you and your parents will need to come to this event. We’ll help you create your required FSA IDs, and you’ll get a chance to stay after the main meeting for the Class of 2019 Senior Parent Meeting. This is an important event…please tell your friends and make sure everyone knows to come!
For a number of years parents have supported our Senior Grad Night Party by working as volunteers in the Club Room during U of O Football Games. This job is a great fundraiser and we must have 16 adult (18+) volunteers at each game in order to keep this job for future classes. We are asking for your help this Saturday, September 8th. This is an easy job that involves a team of two volunteers at each entrance in the Club Room checking that guests have tickets and greeting people. It is fun to volunteer with a friend. There are TVs broadcasting the game and it is an exciting atmosphere. Volunteers need to check-in at 8:45am. If you can volunteer, please contact Cori Murphy at 541-326-5938 right away. If you are the parent of a Senior, please join the Facebook page “WHS Class of 2019”. If you cannot help this Saturday, please consider helping on September 15 or 22. We want to be able to provide a fun, drug & alcohol free celebration for ALL Willamette graduates for years to come. PLEASE help us to keep this important fundraiser by volunteering. Thank You!
