It takes strong schools like Hayes Freedom HS to build a strong community, and our school board members devote many hours making sure all of the Camas schools are helping every child learn at a higher level. They spend time studying important issues in education in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.
Please take a moment to show your appreciation to our five wonderful school board members this month.
This contest asks students to write an essay of no more than 500 words discussing the relationship between the liberal arts and democratic principles.

The 2nd place winner will receive a $2,000 scholarship to a WaCLA institution, and the 3rd place winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship to a WaCLA institution.
Essays must be submitted at the WaCLA website by January 31, 2014. No late entries will be accepted. Essays cannot be more than 500 words. Your submission must be double-spaced and entered as either a .pdf or Word document.
It’s that simple!

If you are planning to apply for financial aid, scholarships and/or grants, this is the perfect time to make a list of what each institution or program will need from you and the deadline by which they will need it. A completed FAFSA form will be necessary and some programs also require the CSS Profile, a separate document.
Click here to get an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) by filling out the “forecaster”. The submitted FAFSA will ultimately determine what federally and state funded grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans a student or family qualifies for.
The College Board website provides the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE, which can be accessed at this link.
The FAFSA form is available after January 1, 2014 so in the meantime students can apply for a PIN, an electronic number that also serves as a signature for all applications to federal student aid as well as personal federal aid records.
