SENIORS:  If you are college bound after you graduate, the FAFSA is calling your name! The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), is a vital piece of documentation that can lead to grants, scholarships, work study opportunities and more. Don’t miss this important first step towards funding your future.  Last year, millions of federal dollars went unused because students did not complete the FAFSA

LCHS Counselors and staff certified in FAFSA Assistance will be offering their services free of charge to seniors and/or their parents on Monday, October 7, in the High School Media Center. Open hours will be from 4:00-7:00 p.m. and no appointment is necessary. Computers will even be provided for your convenience, but you are also able to bring your own. Don’t delay; put this event on your calendar today!

Make sure you come prepared; you will need:

-Social Security numbers (or alien registration numbers if non-U.S. citizens)

-Driver's license numbers, dates of birth, and date of parents’ marriage (and divorce, if applicable)

-2018 federal tax forms, including W-2s

-Current bank account and investment statements (or approximate dollar amounts in those accounts)

-If applicable, records of untaxed income received in 2018

-If applicable, last year's small business or farm ownership records

-If applicable, total amount of child support paid or received

College is expensive, but not impossible. Let our FAFSA experts get you started!

If you cannot attend on October 7, you are also able to get free help filling out the FAFSA through ICAN, which has an office at Iowa Western.  See the attached flyer if you'd like to set up an appointment.


                        Students - home activities have started.  The following reminder.

  It is important that all students keep in mind that expectations for behavior at events is no different than at school - BE A TITAN!!! In order for good sportsmanship to be a Titan staple, all students must contribute to an enjoyable and respectful environment.  We expect all students to enthusiastically support the Titans while at the same time respecting our opponents. Titan Nation WILL BE a place where students attend sporting events and extra curricular activities to express pride in BEING A TITAN!!!

Some things to remember at activities:
