From the Principal’s Desk…

Dear North Middlesex Families,

On behalf of the faculty, I would like to sincerely thank all the students who came out to support our 8th grade open house yesterday. It was great to see so many of our current students demonstrating their school pride and sharing their experiences with members of the incoming class of 2021!

This Thursday, 11/10 we will be holding our annual Veterans breakfast from 7:30 to 9:00 am. This event is sponsored by the NM Student Council. Our students are anxious to honor our veterans, so please encourage local veterans to attend this event if they are able.

Next Wednesday, 11/9 is the next community consultation meeting, where I will discuss feedback from consultations with parents and students.

Sincerely,

 

Isaac Taylor

Principal

FAFSA Update

In the past, FAFSA was available January 1st. Under the new deadlines, Fafsa became available October 1st. Families can apply for aid for 2017-2018 starting last weekend, using their 2015 taxes. This is important because according to the Chronicle of Higher Education, many colleges plan to offer aid packages much earlier, as early as December, to students who apply early action.

Fitchburg State University will be hosting a FAFSA Day on Sunday, November 6th, at 1:00pm, at the Antonucci Science Complex, 333 North Street, Fitchburg, MA.   Visit https://www.masfaa.org/fafsa-day-register/  to register and learn more.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a federally required form for all students seeking financial aid, including grants and loans.  At FAFSA Day, local financial aid experts will guide you through how to fill out the FAFSA, and you will have a chance to ask questions about your specific circumstances.  All seniors and their parents are encouraged to attend.

Please reach out to your child’s guidance counsellor with any questions or concerns.
