PVSchools Hosts FAFSA Support Night for Seniors and Families
The College and Career department at Paradise Valley Unified School District (PVSchools) is inviting senior students and their families to an essential in-person event focused on aiding the completion of the 2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The district wide Senior FAFSA Night is set for May 7, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., taking place at the District Training Center, located at 15002 N. 32nd St., Phoenix.

To facilitate a smooth experience, signs will be posted throughout the venue’s parking lot, directing attendees to the training building situated on the west side of the campus. Prospective participants are encouraged to register in advance through the “Senior FAFSA Night Sign-Up” portal.

Important to note, attendees must set up their Federal Student Aid (FSA) IDs before the event. This requires creating separate FSA IDs for parents and students, with unique email addresses and phone numbers for each. Guidance on setting up an FSA ID is available on the College and Career Services page via pvschools.net.
The initiative aligns with recent efforts by Arizona’s administration to bolster FAFSA completion rates. Earlier this month, Governor Hobbs proclaimed April as the “Finish Line to the FAFSA Month,” highlighting the critical nature of these forms for college financing. Moreover, the governor recently announced a significant $500,000 investment to enhance support for students completing the FAFSA in Arizona, underscoring the state’s commitment to expanding higher education accessibility.

The 32nd Street Market lights up the area with foodie nights set for May 16 and June 20 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. These free community events at 18401 N. 32nd St., in Phoenix, feature live music and an array of activities for all ages, including a petting zoo for the little ones.

Sweet treats and refreshments are plentiful with brownies, cookies, and lemonade on offer. Interactive games like cornhole and Jenga add to the lively atmosphere. This is the perfect family night out that delights the taste buds and offers entertainment.
