Important Information

Dear Senior Parents/Guardians:

Although there certainly are privileges to being a senior in high school, many senior-year activities-- college application fees, senior portraits, attending the prom, senior dues, and senior trips -are costs that add up. The cost of the final year of high school takes many parents by surprise. Therefore, I have created a checklist of some items you will need to keep in mind while preparing your child for their culminating high school year!

With supply chain difficulties nationwide, there is uncertainty with costs per item. This year and beyond, there are increases in most materials and services. This means it is almost impossible to accurately pinpoint the exact costs of the items below until we order them; therefore, senior dues are just an estimate.  It is our goal always to keep costs to families as low as possible. We hope it will not be necessary to ask for additional fees to cover costs as time goes on though this is a possibility. Please be aware that if there is any funds collected in remainder, these will remain in the senior account and used for items related to senior students.  

I have attached below information on Senior Dues & Upcoming Senior Items.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out should you have any questions or needs. Thank you for your continued support.
