The third page is to be a list of your school and community activities. It is a PDF file, so you must have a fairly new version of Adobe Reader. You should be able to type directly in the text boxes and print. If you do not have access to a computer equipped with Adobe Reader, you can download it here. If you cannot download the reader, see Mrs. Stevens (if you want) and kindly ask her if you may use her computers in her adjacent computer lab during resource time only. Mrs. Kennedy can always give you a paper copy of the data page and you can type the page manually.
Turn in your completed applications into the Guidance Office by Friday, March 13, 2020. Scholarship winners will be announced at the Senior Awards Night.
