I hope you enjoyed your Presidents’ Day. It is a busy and exciting week here in New Haven.
For a lot of high school seniors the process of filing out financial aid forms can be daunting. To help you or your child better understand the process, this month New Haven Promise is hosting ‘FASFA February’; a series of workshops designed to help high school seniors fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and/or New Haven Promise Application forms. I encourage all high school seniors to attend these free workshops and not miss out on their chance to apply for federal student aid and enroll in New Haven Promise. The workshops will be held:
--Thur. Feb. 24 from 4pm-7pm at Wilbur Cross Cafeteria
--Sat. Feb. 26 from 2pm-5pm at Career Cafeteria
