Senior Newsletter - November 2018


We hope your November has started off great. As you know,  our Thanksgiving Break Deadline for college applications is approaching very soon. Please remember to double check your institutional deadlines for Early Action, Early Decision and institutional based scholarships.  Please make sure you and your family have started and hopefully filed your FAFSA. Several of you have not returned your Senior Autobiographical packets to your counselors, remember you must do this at least two weeks in advance of when you need a letter of recommendation. Almost all four year colleges and universities require a letter of recommendation from your High School Counselor, please make sure you are aware of this and give ample time to request the letter.   


We will be hosting an opportunity for you and your parents to file your 2019 FAFSA here at Corinth HS on Tuesday, November 13 at 6 p.m. in room 110. We will have a Financial Aid Team from SUNY Adirondack here to assist you and your family.  Please sign up for a spot with Mrs. Bills by Friday, November 9 and bring your 2017 Tax information to the session.
