    Dear Senior Class Student & Parent/Guardian,



    Congratulations!  Your child is scheduled to graduate in June of 2024 contingent upon meeting all the requirements for graduation.  Senior year is an exciting, yet expensive time.


    The cost of senior dues for the Class of 2024 is $315.  Please visit and click on the tab “Pay Online”. Scroll down to options and click High School Dues. Payment should be submitted by January 31, 2024.  


    Senior dues help us cover the expense of exclusive senior events.  Past senior events have included movie night, sunrise & sunset gatherings. The dues also include the expense of the graduation itself.  More specifically; our graduation expenses include chairs & stage, sound system, decorations, caps & gowns and diploma cases. Seniors will also receive going away, surprises at the ceremony.


    The biggest expense that the senior dues cover is the yearbook. The yearbook absorbs almost half of the paid dues. The company that produces the yearbook charges large and small schools the same amount to produce a yearbook. Our small graduating class has to cover the production expenses, in addition to paying for the reproduction of the book itself.


    Keep in mind, in addition to the cost of senior dues, is the senior trip and our prom.  We expect to offer these wonderful opportunities to our senior class of 2024 but have yet to establish dates and destinations. The senior trip and prom are voluntary and are not covered by senior dues. We understand that these events are expensive and will work with our vendors to ensure the lowest cost possible.


    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns (718) 815-0186 ext. 23141
