posted Jan 20, 2016, 10:17 AM by George Cunningham   [ updated Jan 27, 2016, 10:43 AM ]

Seniors, congratulations on completing a college application!!  Now let's work on helping you pay for college.  To be considered for federal, most state, and institutional financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA).  Have questions on how to begin this process?  Hampton High will be hosting an event on Saturday, January 30 beginning at 10:00 am and ending at 1:00 pm in our library. Come join us and get help on completing your FAFSA. 

Here’s a checklist!
You should have the following information and documents with you as you .ll out the
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA):
  • Your Social Security number
  • Your parents’ Social Security numbers if you are providing parent information*
  • Your driver’s license number if you have one
  • Your Alien Registration Number if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Federal tax information or tax returns** including IRS W-2 information, for you (and your spouse, if you are married), and for your parents if you are providing parent information
    • If you have not yet filed an income tax return, complete and submit the FAFSA using estimated tax information
    • Use income records for the year prior to the academic year for which you are applying: for instance, if you are filling out the 2016–17 FAFSA, you will need 2015 tax information
  • Records of your untaxed income, such as child support received, interest income, and veterans non-education benefits, for you, and for your parents if you are providing parent information
  • Information on cash; savings and checking account balances; investments, including real estate but not including the home in which you live; and business and farm assets for you, and for your parents if you are providing parent information
 * Not sure whether you will need to put your parents’ information on the FAFSA? Check out “Am I Dependent or Independent?”
at www.studentaid.ed.gov/pubs or call 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243).
 ** If you file your taxes before filling out your FAFSA online, you might be able to have your tax information automatically
retrieved from the Internal Revenue Service and inserted in your FAFSA. The FAFSA will walk you through the process.

Crabber Takes First Place!!

posted Jan 12, 2016, 8:27 AM by George Cunningham   [ updated Jan 12, 2016, 8:27 AM ]

Please congratulate Khalil Russell (pictured with his parents in the attachment), who took first place at the American Legion Oratorical Contest this past Saturday. With wins at both the Local and District levels, Khalil moves on to the Regional Competition on February 20th at the American Legion Post in Phoebus. 

Khalil's original oration on the US Constitution was well crafted and expertly delivered. Crabber alum in the audience hooted out "Crabber Pride!" after his win was announced. With the support of American Legion Post 31 (across from Darling Stadium), we hope to see Khalil take first again next month and move on to the state competition.
