Welcome to your child’s senior year at IS 281. We are looking forward to an exciting year filled with educational, social and emotional growth opportunities. Working together, we will surely make this school year one to remember for ‘The Class of 2017’.
While it may seem to be early in the school year, we are already busy planning Senior Activities. It is our goal to celebrate our Senior Class throughout the school year. There will be a variety of Senior Activities and different events that only members of our Senior Class will be permitted to participate in. Our students have worked very hard over the past two years and I know that this trend will continue during the 2016-2017 school year.
As a graduating senior, your child will be involved in many special events, all of which culminate with our Graduation Ceremony at the beautiful Grand Prospect Hall on June 21, 2017. Many of these events will be documented in a hard-covered edition of our Senior Yearbook as well as a DVD covering our senior prom and graduation ceremony.
As in years past, we will be collecting senior dues that will cover the cost of the many items that your child will need to make his/her senior year a memorable one. The total cost of senior dues will be $110.00.
This fee will cover the following expenses:
***Please be advised that senior dues must be paid in full in order for students to be eligible to attend the Senior Prom, Senior Trip and Graduation Ceremony. The fees for our Senior Prom & Senior Trip are not included in Senior Dues. Participation in these activities will be determined based upon our ‘demerit program’ (students/parents have already been informed). Students who have not earned graduation in June & students who are excluded from Graduation Ceremony due to excessive demerits will receive a refund of $25.00.
Students may begin to bring in senior dues upon receipt of this notice. Senior dues should be brought to Ms. Friscia, in room 128, during period 6 (lunch period) only. Partial payments will be accepted in increments of $20.00. Checks or money orders should be made out to IS 281 Joseph B. Cavallaro. Cash is also acceptable. Please write your child’s name and class on the check or money order.
The Class of 2017 is truly a wonderful group. We have a memorable year planned for them. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call Ms. Delfini at 718-996-6706; ext. 2261.
