  Auto-Construction Program
There has been a flurry of activity down in the CTE (Career and Technical Education) wing at RHS this Fall.  Thanks to our wonderful alumni and benefactors, the Auto Service program received 2 outstanding donations: a 2000 BMW Z3 and a 2002 Mazda 626.  Both will be used for instructional purposes during the school year, and will be sold at the end of the school year.   Mr. Lampi, the instructor, will notify staff and students when the sealed bidding will begin.  Funds obtained by the sale will go back into the auto program, and will fund costs for a SkillsUSA chapter and competition expenses.
Big news in the Auto Collision Repair Program.  State Farm Insurance Company has also donated a car to Roosevelt’s Auto program. This is a first!  This donation is intended for training purposes only. State Farm is planning to send staff over to RHS for publicity photos!  Congrats to Mr. Franks and the Collisions students.  Both Auto programs will accept car donations—contact the instructors if you are interested in making a tax deductible donation. 
The Work Based Learning students have begun their E-Mentoring program.  One class is sending weekly e-mails to Ameriprise employees; the other is working with Accenture.  Students learn to send professional e-mails for a variety of work related topics, and learn about their mentor’s job and career.  The highlight of the program will be “Meet and Greet” visits at the business sites in November.
Another first—the Construction program was host to the metro area “Construct Tomorrow” career fair, held October 1st in the RHS gym…See details of the event in a separate article

  ATTENTION SENIORS...
2015 List of Postsecondary Institutions: Application Fee Information
As Minnesota high school students think about applying to college, application fees should not be a barrier. Some Minnesota colleges do not charge application fees or they don’t charge fees at a certain time. And for students from lower-income families, all colleges offer a fee waiver.

For students from low-income families
Every day of the year, students from families with modest incomes can apply at no charge using a NACAC fee waiver at the University of Minnesota, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and the nonprofit colleges that are members of the Minnesota Private College Council. High school counselors and college admission staff can help a student make these arrangements. Eligibility information and the fee waiver form is available at http://www.nacacnet.org/studentinfo/feewaiver.

For all students
There are many opportunities for students to apply at no charge at some institutions.
Some colleges never require an application fee; sometimes this offer is limited to applications submitted online.
Some colleges waive the application fee for the month of October.
Some colleges waive the application fee for one week in late October.
Refer to the list below and on the following pages for the ways students can apply without a fee at Minnesota’s postsecondary institutions.
