Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,





Monday, January 27, is the first day of class for students on Monday Academic Leave. Class is 4:30-6:30.



Message from Mrs. Talmage, Academic Counselor

I now have a website! Please go to HERE for more information about all of the following events, particularly our campus college rep visits! I will be working on adding information about transcripts in the near future. -Mrs. Talmage

Exciting Opportunities on the Horizon:

FAFSA Night - Wednesday, January 29th, 4:00pm: Eagle will be hosting its first FAFSA Night, with a presenter from Denver Community College! Parents and students (graduating this academic year) are invited to attend to receive start-to-finish assistance filling out the FAFSA and ask any questions regarding financial aid.

By filling out the FAFSA, students will not only be eligible for federal aid to help pay for their education, but also for grants and work-study positions through community colleges and four-year colleges and universities.

This event will begin at 4:00pm in Room 121. The formal event will last until dinner time at 6:07, but students/parents are welcome to stay during dinner for any remaining questions and help. Dinner will be provided to students who stay through dinner.

In order to complete the FAFSA, you will need to bring parent and student social security numbers and 2018 W2 Tax forms. If you have a unique situation, please contact me at wmtalmage@dcsdk12.org.

Discover ACC - Friday, January 31st, 9:30am-1:30pm: Arapahoe Community College invites you to visit their Littleton campus on Friday, January 31st from 9:30am-1:30pm to explore their degree programs and learn more about the career pathways available through ACC. There will also be an opportunity to win scholarships and ACC gear! A 2018 Eagle grad won $1000 at a Discover ACC event this fall! A student panel will also be offered, so you can hear the experiences of current students. To register, go to arapahoe.edu/discoveracc.

This event will include student participants submitting artwork with positive messages for an art event on Monday February 24th 2020 that will result in scholarships for the top three works of art as well as a positive community event with food and live music that is open to the public!


Would you be willing to help us spread the word within student and school communities to encourage student participation? An artwork submission form and FAQs can be found at: https://catalively.org/love-your-life
