Upcoming Events

*Tomorrow*, Friday, February 9th, City Honors students are asking the school community to donate $1.00 and dress in their favorite Buffalo Sports team attire. All proceeds will be donated to 2017 graduate Amber Conti and her family whom recently lost their home and family member to a tragic fire. We are encouraging students to dress in Buffalo-themed baseball caps, hoodies, tees, jerseys to help support this family in need. Student representatives will visit homerooms to collect donations for those wearing Buffalo sports gear.

Our fall/winter Box Tops for Education homeroom contest ends on February 16.  Students and fans will have turned in envelopes filled with Box Tops and we need to “process” them ALL before the deadline; otherwise, we miss out.

We need helpers to clip and sort several hundred Box Tops!

  • When:   Tuesday, February 20, 6-8 p.m.
  • Where:   279 Northampton St., Buffalo, 14208

Your assistance is GREATLY appreciated as each one equals 10 cents toward our school-garden funding.

Bring your favorite scissors!

Financial Aid Night will take place on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 5:30-7 p.m. in the City Honors’ Large Group Instruction Room (LGI).  The School Counselors are pleased to have Mr. Daniel Tramuta from the Financial Aid Office at Fredonia State College as our guest speaker. All juniors and seniors, and their parents are encouraged to attend.

Some things to keep in mind relative to financial aid:

Families can begin applying for financial aid on October 1- https://fafsa.ed.gov/

In addition, families will now use tax data from two years prior to complete the FAFSA. For the 2018-19 FAFSA, students will use their families’ 2016 income and tax information.

How will this benefit your high school seniors?

Because the FAFSA is available earlier, students and their families can have more time to explore and understand their financial aid options before selecting a college.

Also, because the FAFSA will ask for older income and tax information, families will already have filed their taxes and won’t need to estimate their tax information or go back into the FAFSA later to update it. In addition, more families will be able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to automatically import their tax information into their FAFSA.

We encourage you and your senior students to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1.

Online applications must be submitted by midnight Central Time, June 30, 2019.

Any corrections or updates must be submitted by midnight Central Time, September 14, 2019.

Students and parents/guardians can register for FAFSA completion assistance by going to HESC’s website dedicated to encouraging completion of the FAFSA – StarttHereGetThere.org<https://www.startheregetthere.org/>.

* Sign up for a hands-on FAFSA workshop on the statewide calendar of FAFSA completion events.
* Chat online or speak with a HESC representative weekdays between 9am-4pm at 800-808-1790.
