    Superintendent Debbie Siebert will give the annual State of the School Address on Jan. 31, at 7 p.m., in the Peoples Church Music Suite. As a school community, it is beneficial for everyone to receive pertinent information regarding how well we are meeting the mission of Fresno Christian Schools.

You can go with groups of friends or as couples.

    Student leadership will hold tryouts for the West Sequoia League Talent Show during lunch on Jan. 25-27. The school is allowed two acts and one alternate to perform at FC and at other high schools. If you would like to showcase your talent, you must schedule a time with Mr. Foshee, leadership adviser.

    Fresno City College has many scholarships available to seniors who plan to enroll in the fall. The deadline for applying is March 2; go to to apply. For more information, contact Cathie Johnson, Scholarship Specialist, at 559.442.8293.

    Every senior who is planning on attending college in the fall and will be completing the FAFSA by March 2, 2011. In order to apply for financial aid, you must also submit a GPA Verification Form.

    Fresno Christian will submit GPA verifications on behalf of every senior who has returned a signed Cal Grant GPA Information Release Form, which was given to seniors on Dec. 2. Students who do not turn in the release form to Mrs. Sargent will not have their GPAs submitted and, therefore, will be ineligible for financial aid consideration.

    The following seniors have not turned in the Cal Grant GPA Information Release Form: Roman Avila, Abel Carreon, Stowe Empereur, Andrew Evans, Connor Gibes, Stephen Grimes, Kelsey Gunner, Dannilo Ibarra, Hannah Joseph, SK Kim, Brett Lewis, Jessica Massie, Maria Montejano, Dean Potigian, Zach Ragan, Seth Ramirez, Mary Reynolds, Megan Stewart, Bridget Teixeira, Kasey Thompson, Justin Wilson. Additional forms may be obtained from Mrs. Sargent and should be returned ASAP.

    Scooters are not allowed on the Peoples Church campus or inside any buildings. The only places where scooters are allowed to be ridden are the parking lots. Violation of this rule will result in scooters being confiscated. Scooters will only be returned to parents.

    If you ever need help with your school work, don’t forget to come to CSF tutoring on Wednesdays after school, 3:15-4:15, in Room 621.

    Music department students continue to sell muffins, croissants and vitamin water every morning for $1 each. They are sold outside Building 6 from 7:15 to 7:50 a.m. The proceeds benefit instrumental and choral groups.
