FAFSA & Dream Act Workshop
Febuary 5, 2015 3pm to 7pm (Denair Charter Academy Room #40)
Every Senior who is attending college or thinking about college, whether it is a four-year University, Junior College or vocational school should complete the necessary paperwork to receive a chance for a grant, which is FREE MONEY. The FAFSA (Free Application for Free Student Aid) and the Dream Act will allow you a chance to receive a Federal Pell Grant and is the first step to a State Cal Grant. Denair High will complete the Cal Grant form for all students, so that means all you have to do is complete the FAFSA by the deadline of March 2, 2015. There are only two forms and we will do one for you. Each Grant has its own certain qualifications, but there is no cost to apply. You may qualify even if you don’t think you do. In addition, the FAFSA allows you access to student loans, work-study and scholarships. The deadline is March 2nd, make sure all your paperwork is completed before that date.

Increasingly, students from middle class families have also been priced out of college. To help these families, the Legislature enacted the Middle Class Scholarship in 2013.
Both Cal Grants and the Middle Class Scholarship are only available by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov or the CA Dream Act Application at www.caldreamact.org.
Remember, you won't be eligible for the money unless you fill out the application and meet the March 2, 2015 deadline.
Two of Denair High School’s brightest students have gained early acceptance into colleges in Oregon.
High-achieving seniors Anna Dirkse and Joel Thornton applied at multiple universities and likely would have been welcomed at many campuses. But both say they were thrilled when their first choices offered spots in next fall’s freshmen class early on in the process.
Dirkse, 17, was accepted at George Fox University in Newberg, about 25 miles south of Portland. It is a small, private Christian college known for its engineering program, though she’s leaning in other directions.
“I don’t know what I’m going to major in – maybe arts or communications or English,” said Dirkse, who has a 4.43 grade point average. “I just applied to an honors program there that studies great works of literature and how they affect culture.”

Three students at Denair High School have earned prestigious recognition for their bilingual speaking and writing abilities.
Seniors Maria Martinez and Kimberly Perez Pulido and junior Alejandra Parada were awarded the coveted Seal of Multilingual Proficiency in a ceremony Wednesday night at the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto. The designation will be specially noted on their high school diplomas, certifying that they are fluent in English as well as Spanish.
This important recognition helps graduates when they apply to colleges, compete for scholarships or submit job applications.
