January 3, 2023

Dear Parents/Guardians & Students of Class of 2023,

The Warwick Valley High School Counseling Department would like to invite you to the annual Scholarship Information Night, which will be held on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at 7:00pm in the High School Auditorium. The snow date is January 30th.

We will share information regarding various Local, Orange County and New York State scholarships that are available to your graduating senior. Members of the counseling team will show you where your student will be able to obtain scholarship information, research scholarship criteria, deadlines and all of the steps that are required to apply. We expect the presentation to last approximately an hour and a half. We recommend that your child bring his/her Chromebook to the presentation.

We will also have a representative from the Community Foundation of Orange & Sullivan, which is an organization that manages a multitude of scholarship funds established by individuals, families, businesses and organizations to assist high school, college, career and technical school students as well as adults in continuing their education. There are many scholarships that are available to WVHS students through the foundation and she will go over the steps of their application portal.

Your child can use a variety of sources to search for scholarships, as well as, using additional information posted in the Guidance Class of 2023 Google Classroom. We urge that your student continue to pay close attention to additional announcements and encourage your student to apply for any and all scholarships, which they are eligible for.

We ask that you complete the registration form by Friday, January 20th so we can plan accordingly:

We hope to see you at this important event which will continue in the planning and assisting of post-high school planning for your child. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your student’s school counselor.

Director of Guidance and School Counseling
