School Board "Spring of Review"

By Rebecca Fink
Wednesday April 9, Prosser School Board commenced their regular board meeting after the week long Spring Break.
Up first the Board had the opportunity to hear from Fred Bray, who was to address the board, not only as a parent with a child attending Prosser schools, a resident of Prosser, an educator himself, but also the President of the Teachers' union.  Bray was there to express his, and some of those teachers that he represents, concern over the amount of testing that will be taking place between now and the end of May. "We are entering the "testing season", 12 to 14 days, ¼ of the teaching days this quarter will be dedicated to testing."
We have a number of new titles coming to inspire your spring cleaning and redecorating!  "Organize Your Home: Clutter Cures for Every Room" from Better Homes and Gardens explores the psychology of paring down possessions, reducing clutter, and staying organized with manageable tasks.  Learn how to mix vintage, modern, and thrift store finds to create the eclectic look with "Create the Style You Crave on a Budget You Can Afford" by Desha Peacock.

WSU sets May 1 deadline for WASFA for Real Hope Act students

Pullman Students have until May 1 to submit the Washington Application for State Financial Aid, or WASFA, to Washington State University. But they are encouraged to submit it as soon as possible.
"The sooner students complete the WASFA, the better chance they have of receiving a grant because funds are limited," said Marcela Pattinson who coordinates WSU outreach to undocumented students.
The WAFSA provides undocumented students who meet certain criteria an opportunity to qualify for State Need Grant funds.
