Seniors…where are you in the FAFSA process? Getting financial aid for college involves more than completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Make sure you get through each step of the process so that you don’t miss out on money for college. Did you complete and submit a 2019-20 FAFSA? If you haven’t, complete the form at FAFSA.gov using 2017 income tax data. Before you start, you and a parent must each get an FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov. You’ll need the FSA IDs to access and sign your FAFSA. If you DID submit a FAFSA, here’s what happens next: • Expect a Student Aid Report (SAR) via an email link. The SAR acknowledges that your FAFSA was received and lets you know if you need to take further action before the form can be processed. • You might receive a “verification” notification. The college(s) you listed on your FAFSA may contact you requesting documents to verify information you included on your FAFSA. You must provide those documents before your financial aid can be processed. • Watch for an award letter from the college(s) you listed on your FAFSA. This will detail the types and amounts of financial aid they are offering you. You must have been accepted for admission before the college will send an award letter. It’s critical that you watch your email and/or student portal carefully to ensure you don’t miss important information about admission and financial aid.

A message from Sarah Sybrant: SCHOOL PENNY WAR IN SUPPORT OF OUR TROOPS I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the parents, teachers, and children that teamed up to collect $712.58 during the Penny War, in November, grades Pre-K through 9th grade. This year, the classes teamed up with Mary Kay to provide needed products such as sun block, lip balm, cleansers, moisturizers, etc. to our soldiers in need. With your help and support, we were able to send a very nice donation to Soldier’s Angels, $1,448 worth of products. They in turn, ship the product to the soldiers. If you look at Soldier’s Angels website, there is an Operation Mary Kay section that displays many thankful e-mails from soldiers everywhere and how they appreciate receiving the Mary Kay products. The classroom that collected the most money during the penny war will receive a pizza party from me! The winning class was the Pre-K class with $241! They will enjoy their free pizza soon. Congratulations! Pre-K: $241.77 Kindergarten: $156.62 1st Grade: $33.79 2nd Grade: $110.70 3rd Grade: $19.54 4th Grade: $70.20 5th Grade: $8.63 6th Grade: $29.02 9th Grade: $42.31 All money collected, as well as 100% of my commission, was donated to supply Mary Kay products to Soldier’s Angels. What a great and rewarding event to be a part of. We look forward to doing this again next year and will be setting a goal of collecting $1,000 between both schools in Bassett! So, if you were unable to participate this year, you’ll have another chance! Thank you all so much from a grateful heart! Sarah Sybrant Mary Kay Beauty Consultant

Announcement: The girls and boys basketball teams will be hosting O’Neill St. Mary’s on December 14th in Bassett. In conjunction with the game, we are hosting a Black Out Cancer night.

The funds raised that night will be donated to the Nebraska Cancer Center for Research as well as to the Bulau family to help with their fight against this horrible disease. One of the first things that we ask you to do is to order t-shirts from the link below. They are due on December 7th and will be shipped and ready to wear for the game on the 14th. We will also be having donation buckets as well as a few other fundraising activities in which we will donate 100% of the proceeds to help with the fight against cancer.
