Class Dues Information:
Each high school must pay for the cost of all class activities and events, with Graduation being one of the most important and expensive. The school system does not give the schools funds for any of these activities. Dues are collected both junior and senior years for this purpose. Since quite a few events occur senior year, here is a partial list of what your dues pay for. Junior/Senior dues cover all class activities, including Convocation and Graduation, along with practices for the actual events. Graduation is the largest cost item, running about $40,000 each year. Some of these expenses include:
• Rental of the Patriot Center (approximately $12,000) • Security (police) at Graduation (over $500) • Caps, gowns, tassels and diploma covers (over $11,000) • Flowers (used at all three events) • Printing for all events (over $2,000) • Set-up costs (custodians) • Bus costs for band and chorus who perform at Graduation
These are only part of the costs for putting on the terrific graduations we have each year so that they are a memorable occasion for all. Dues also subsidize the cost of Prom so the cost per student is less. In addition, each year the senior class presents a gift to the school.
Class dues must be paid in order to pick up your yearbook, buy Prom tickets or participate in the graduation ceremony.
