New Scholarships April 23, 2020

Aloha, Seniors!  Checking in on you this week, and wanting to share some scholarship and other opportunities with you.
First, I know receiving ALL these emails from all of your teachers, counselors, etc can be quite overwhelming.  Try setting a routine for yourself amidst all of this chaos.  Maybe setting aside specific times to check and respond to emails, do your classwork, and meet with your teachers, can help you to keep everything a little bit straighter.  Remember that you can email any of us at any time, and we will do our best to get back to you in a timely manner.
Ok, on with the scholarship information!  Take care and keep in touch!
