It is intended to help students make their educational goals achievable. College Goal Sunday will take place on Sunday, Jan 31, 2010 in the Swysgood Technology Center. The day’s events will start at noon with a pizza party and run until 4 p.m. The events on Monday night through Wednesday night will begin at 4 p.m. These events will focus on preparing students for college with assistance filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). A $500 scholarship will be available through a drawing for students who complete the FASFA.
