Ready for school? Ready or not!.....
Whether you are in college, just graduated from college, or graduated a while ago, you'll want to listen up. Student loan rates have dropped considerably, and there has never been a better time to consolidate.
Beginning July 1, people who graduated this spring can consolidate their loans at 2.77% for the next 30 years! You have to consolidate within six months of your graduation date, though. So, get it done. If you’ve been out of school for more than six months, you can consolidate your loans at a rate of 3.37 percent. And, if you have PLUS loans, your rate will be 4.17 percent. Some lenders are even offering to lower rates by ¼ of a point if you allow automatic payment from your bank account. These are the lowest rates in history so take advantage before the rates jump back up. And remember you cannot consolidate your loans if you’ve already done it.
If you're still out there shopping for school clothes there are many sales going on, especially at the mall. Pacific Eyes and T's will give you 25% off if you spend $50 or more. Payless Shoe Store is having their famous Buy One Get One 1/2 Off sale. Marshalls has all kinds of stuff on sale. Chicks is having their big annual "Chick Sale" for school and sports clothes. By the way, Carlsbad High does NOT require you to wear their CHS clothing for PE. You can wear your own PE clothes as long as it doesn't have logos on it and is either black, gray, purple or white.
I finally got the dates for the 2004 BYU Education Week satellite broadcast:
September 14-17. There will be 3 classes broadcast each evening from 4:00-10:00 pm MDT....so that's what time here?...3:00-9:00 pm. Check out BYUTV on Dish Network (channel 9403) and DirecTV (channel 374) or check local cable listings. You can also see and hear it on-line. For video &
audio streaming in English and Spanish go to http://educationweek.byu.edu
Some of the more popular teachers at Education Week are the ones who get broadcast such as Victor Ludlow (middle east expert & scriptorian), Brent Barlow (great classes on marriage and cute sense of humor), Mary Ellen Edmunds (Mormon version of Erma Bombeck), Paula Fellingham (upbeat parenting classes), and more!! Start thinking about attending Education Week next August at BYU. It's such a wonderful event and one of the best ways I know to renew your spirit and invigorate your mind. Make it your new summer tradition!
Jayne Pehrson, a Relief Society President in our Stake, wanted me to get this word out:
My sister is in need of an assistant for her daycare. It is temporary.
She needs someone starting August 30th. It is Monday through Friday 7am
-5pm. If there are any questions they can call her at 760-757-3462.
Well my dears, good luck this week with school! ;)
