October holds many opportunities for service for the NHS students. Eighty-five students will be traveling to the Grignon Home on October 2nd and 4th to teach Fall Harvest Days to elementary students. This is an opportunity for NHS students to truly give back to their community because many of the NHS students participated in the Harvest Days when they were in grade school.
The Sherwood Optimist Club has invited NHS students to Wanek Park for a second year, to volunteer their services for the Super Hero Walk on October 6th. NHS students will be dressed as their favorite Super Hero. We have a group of students excited to participate in this family friendly event.
Twenty NHS students will be getting in the kitchen at home to bake treats for the Homecoming dance. I'm sure their treats will be appreciated by the student body.
October 20th is an opportunity to work with The Center For Suicide Awareness located in Kaukauna. The Center For Suicide Awareness has joined forces with the Green Bay Gamblers at their Family Night to shed light on the stigma of depression in society today. NHS students will be helping out in a variety of ways at the Gamblers game.

Free assistance completing the FAFSA!
What to Bring… You will need the following items to complete your 2019-20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you are considered a dependent student for financial aid purposes, you will also need these items for your parent(s).
• 2017 federal tax return and W2s
• 2017 untaxed income records, such as child support or veteran’s non-education benefits
• Information on savings, investments, business assets and farm assets (if applicable)
• Cell phone (if you have one)
• Driver’s License (if you have one)
• Social Security Number/Alien Registration Card/Permanent Resident Card
• Date of birth for parent(s)
• Month and year of parents’ marriage, divorce or separation
• FSA ID (if you have one). You can visit fsaid.ed.gov to create your FSA ID. For assistance with the process, please call 1-800-433-3243.
o The FSA ID is your signature, so it has to be unique to you and will be your FSA ID for life.
o Every student and at least one parent of a dependent student will need an FSA ID.
o If a parent already has an FSA ID or has more than one child attending college, the parent will use the same FSA ID to sign all applications, but each child must have his or her own FSA ID.
o Each FSA ID user must have a unique mobile phone number and/or email address. It is highly recommended that a dependent student attend the event with a parent or guardian so the FAFSA can be submitted that evening.
