I hope you had a great summer. With only a few weeks left until school is back in, its time to start thinking about how your final year of high school will go, both academically and socially. If you plan on attending any kind of post secondary in the next two years, you will need to think about how you will pay for it.

An average 5 year post secondary degree ranges from $30,000-50,000. I don't know about you, but times are hard for families and very few have been able to safe up to help their children go on to post secondary.

This ball is in your court to get ready to apply for scholarships.

Scholarships will be posted weekly throughout the school year on this blog. You can follow me on twitter @sandradasilva3 for real time updates and follow me on the school app.

Volunteering is the biggest thing now for both academic and non academic scholarships. Universities and post secondary schools are looking for well rounded students-students who get involved, do extra curricular and do well in their academics.

Make sure to keep you volunteer hours ready and get letters from the places you have been volunteering at for the past few years. If you haven't been volunteering, get started. Their is still a few weeks left of summer and you can continue throughout the school year to accumulate those hours.

Make sure to have an updated resume.

Make sure that your grade 12 academic year is strong throughout the entire year. Come to class on time, participate well, be in good standing with your teachers and the school.

Looking forward to working with all of you this year.
Come see me in room 303 if you have any questions regarding scholarships come September. We will be having an assembly and many information evenings and events to help you get your post secondary dreams to come true.
