Hope for the Holidays  
Eaton High School has kicked off our 3rd annual Hope for the Holidays fundraisers through your child's English class. This fundraiser provides Christmas gifts for our Eaton families in need this holiday season. Every student can be a part by purchasing ornaments for the English class tree. Ornaments are priced at 50 cents, $1, $5, and $20. Every little bit helps and everyone can be a part of this amazing fundraiser. Please contact your student's English teacher or counselors Michelle Arnold or Abby Scanlon if you have questions or would like to nominate a family in need.

All college bound Seniors should complete the FAFSA!!

What is the FAFSA? The f ree application for federal aid.  To apply for most financial aid - including federal and state student grants, work-study, and loans - you'll need to complete the FAFSA. Oct. 1 is the first day you can file the FAFSA. You should try to file as close to this date as possible. College, state and private aid deadlines may be much earlier than federal deadlines. You should pay attention to your colleges' priority financial aid deadlines. It's a good idea to file your FAFSA as early as possible, so that you can get a jump on other financial aid applications (state or institutional aid) that might have earlier deadlines.
