How are Class Dues Used?
Home Room Coordinators (HRC's) use class dues to buy refreshments, snacks and activities for the four classroom parties throughout the year, and to make a class raffle basket for the Spring Fling fundraiser.
Halloween Party (end of October)
Winter Holiday Party (mid-December)
Valentine's Party (mid-February)
End-of-Year Party (TBD)
In the past, HRCs have planned simple but fun parties that include a snack (from the approved classroom food list), a game or two, and sometimes even a fun experiment and/or a service project that benefits our community.
Why are 6th Grade Dues Higher?
Sixth graders have grade-level celebrations in the cafeteria instead of individual class parties. Dues are used to pay for DJ and pizza/snacks for those celebrations, 6th grade class t-shirts, raffle baskets for Spring Fling, and year-end promotion items (awards, certificates, etc.)
Approved Food Menu for Parties:
Please check your teacher’s webpage for an approved food list specific to your classroom. Any food that is not on this list will not be allowed in the classroom.
