Seniors! Do you need help with completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as you look forward to college?

CLARKE UNIVERSITY is hosting College Goal Day
on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13th , from 9:00am-NOON in the Library in the Atrium Building. Financial Aid Counselors will be available to help you AND your parent/guardian complete the online application. Please see your School Counselor with any questions about this event.

Each February, the National Honor Society hosts the Man Pageant to determine who the Alpha Male is at Senior High School...last year the Man Pageant came to a dramatic tie...but luckily, those equally Manly Men are able to compete again this year!

Last year's co-winners, Francis Mihm and Noah Lucy will have to bring their best to see if they can take down the tough competition of Aaron Locher, Andrew Grawe, Matt Fetzer, Tucker Mai, Calvin Collins, Jakob Kirman, and Noah Bullock. You should plan on attending to see which man will win!
The Man Pageant is Wednesday, February 17th at 7pm in the Auditorium; tickets are $5 or $3 with your stamped Renaissance card. All proceeds will go to ARK - a Dubuque-based nonprofit that provides an adaptive equipment lending library for people with special needs in our community.
