Have your student take a refresher course in the rules regarding cell phones, ipods, and calling home.
 If your student needs to go home
sick please remind them not to use
their phone but to use the phone

College Bound Scholarship
Why College Bound?

Is it not just for college – this is a scholarship that will pay for any educational or training costs that our students on free/reduced lunch may need after graduation.

For example – to be a mechanic or nursing assistant, training is required. Having this College Bound promise will pay for the training or education that your son or daughter would need to begin in the workplace. There is a list of technical and training programs, as well as colleges, available. For more info, check out the College Bound website.

The application takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
