If one of your scholarships requires a recommendation, submit the completed package to Mrs. MacDonald with a post-it note attached requesting the recommendations to be enclosed.
If it is to be mailed, have the envelope completely addressed with the appropriate stamps affixed. As a general rule, two stamps will be needed if the complete application will be 3-5 pages; add three stamps if 6 pages or more. If you are using a larger manila envelope postage is more. Allow enough time for mailing deadline. Bring in packages to be mailed one week before deadline date........
Check due dates carefully - applications will not be considered after the date specified. Most applications are due April 3.
