Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Hello Class of 2020 Students and Families,

Christmas Break is coming quickly and it is a great time to work on and finish up College deadlines and planning for the future.  Here are a few important things to be thinking about:

–Finish up those College Applications over break.  Most colleges have deadlines approaching that you must meet in order to be eligible for scholarships from those colleges. January 1st and February 1st are both big deadline days for colleges.  Check your college for specifics.

–FAFSA should be completed asap if you are headed to a 2 year or 4 year college.  ALL students should fill out the FAFSA no matter the family’s financial status since it is required for many colleges and most scholarships.  Information from parents’ 2018 taxes is required to fill out the FAFSA.  Go to  https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa to begin the process.  Do not delay.

–The Oregon Promise is now open.  The Oregon Promise is a state grant that helps cover tuition at any Oregon Community College.  This is a grant that is easy to apply for and have as a possible option for school and financial aid. Do not delay.  You can apply at oregonstudentaid.gov    

–We have information in the Raven Future Center on Technical and Trade schools as well.  Central Oregon Community College has many exciting Programs related to this area.  Check out their website at www.cocc.edu

–Doug Miner of Miner’s Graduate Services is asking that you get your cap and gown ordered if you haven’t already.  The required purchase is the $36 cap and gown unit but there are also many other goodies available at their website www.minersgrad.com  Please get this process completed as soon as possible.

–Another great tool students can be completing over break is a Resume, Cover Letter and Activities chart.  We consider these very valuable no matter where the student is headed after High School.

–Are you a senior looking for a job or internship?  Stop by and see Kate Soliz and she will set up a meeting with Larry Holmes our internship coordinator.  Also check out http://youthcareerconnect.org/  to see the internships available.

–The Raven future Center has a scholarship wall seniors should be visiting if they are looking for ways to help pay for college.  https://oregongearup.org/calendar/scholarship is also a great place to start looking for scholarships.

–It is not too late to submit your Senior portrait for the yearbook if you have not done so already.  Email Kelly Moore with questions about submitting your senior photo.

–Senior Grad Party tickets are on sale.  Purchase your ticket with cash or check from Randi Davis in the Future Center. $20

–Your baby pictures for the graduation slideshow are due by midnight on March 1, 2020.  You can submit photos here 

The Raven Future Center provides support for all this and more.  Students should stop by and set up an appointment if they are needing assistance or have questions.  Parents and students can also email us with questions.

Graduation: Wednesday June 3rd 7pm Deschutes County Fairgrounds
