Free/Reduced Lunch

If your family has qualified for free or reduced lunch in the past, or you think you may qualify now- please take a few moments to complete the form through Natomas Unified's program. Many of our students receive free or reduced price lunch but the school also receives additional funding, even if you never eat our lunch. You need to complete this form every year, even if you have qualified in the past. If you have questions or need additional help, your adviser can complete the form with you in your next advising meeting.

Hello Class of 2019,

 

We are excited to announce that Natomas Charter School has partnered with Skillify on the development of a Student Career and Leadership Conference on Saturday, August 26th from 10 AM - 2:30 PM at the Benvenuti Performing Arts Center. At this half-day conference students will spend time hearing from professionals in a wide range of fields, learning networking techniques, developing and polishing a resume, and creating a LinkedIn profile. The goal of this event is for students to learn the crucial professional skills needed to explore their interests, develop better communication skills and professional etiquette, and feel more confident in their ability to interact with community members.

 

Natomas Charter School is very excited to be offering this event for all 11th grade students. While this event is not mandatory it is highly encouraged for all Junior PFAA and VLA students to attend.

 

Natomas Charter School and Skillify Present:
