A Message from MATT GREEAR - FHS Track and Field Coach
This year we will be hosting our home track meet May 10th at the
Joan Benoit Samuelson Track and Field @ FHS.
We are looking for volunteers to help run the meet.
This could include reading a tape measure, raking a jumping pit, or writing down distances.
Some of you were able to help last year and it was greatly appreciated.
This year we are trying to get official Freeport Track & Field shirts for volunteering.
If you can help please let me know and pass along shirt size!
We also have 2 middle school meets to run this year. April 25th and May 23.
This is typically done by high school students but we would love to have other volunteers.
It's a great way to see students compete, succeed and work hard outside of the school day.

A Night with Bill Smith:
Understanding College Financial Aid and Paying for College
Thursday, March 21
6:00 - 7:30 PM
Bill Smith’s presentation takes the mystery out of financial aid and college
cost for students and parents.
Learn about the different types of financial aid and how to choose a college you can afford.
Understanding financial aid enables you to make good college choices and informed decisions to manage college costs.
We’ll discuss how to identify your student’s need and merit profile
and learn how to match that with college awarding
policies so you can identify affordable colleges.
Types of aid: grants, scholarships, work/study, loans.
How do colleges decide how much aid to give?
Need- and merit-based aid, what's the difference, how to get it?- -
What do you need to know about financial aid applications: the FAFSA and the Profile forms?
Using net price calculators to estimate your cost after aid at any college.
Estimating the 4-year bottom line: how much will you pay for a college degree?
How can you estimate how much college debt you’ll need?
How can you decide if college debt is reasonable and affordable?
