Did you know that you are likely to be eligible for a scholarship!!!

The Niles Chamber Dollars for Scholars Charter is an all-volunteer committee dedicated to our youth. This 2014-15 academic year, three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to graduating eighth grade students entering high school and three $3,000 scholarships will be awarded to graduating high school seniors. Applications are judged on service to the community and school, response to an essay, awards and honors, school transcripts, and letters of recommendation

All students must complete a Student Profile, this is where they will complete the activities section, transcript section and essay question.
Past recipients have been from local schools such as: St. John Brebeuf, Gemini Junior High, Clarence E. Culver School, St. Juliana, Maine West High School, Niles North High School, Niles West High School, Notre Dame High School, St. Mary of the Woods, Resurrection High School, Maine East High School and Loyola Academy.

6) National Day Calendar.
As a Christmas Gift, Mark received a National Day Calendar from his brother-in-law who is a rather unconventional thinker. This calendar does not list the any national, local or state holidays. But instead it is a calendar of fun and random holidays like “Hug a Plumber Day” and “Ice Cream Day”. In the spirit of fun, Mark will be providing these “holidays” each week as random and fun facts for teens and parents to enjoy and potentially use in their social media posts.

Mon. March 23- Puppy Day/ Near Miss Day
