This scholarship opportunity is available to students in 8th grade. All 8th graders will receive an informational handout about the Take Stock in Children scholarship on November 3rd to bring home. If you feel that your child qualifies and you would like to receive an application, students must return the bottom portion of the form. Students should submit their request slips to the back office, or give them directly to Ms. Northcutt, 8th grade School Counselor.
