    SENIOR DUES-- Overdue, but can still be paid.

    All Class of 2024 Seniors have been invoiced for their Senior Dues via My School Bucks. Senior Dues are $100.00 and cover the cost of your cap, gown, tassel, yearbook, senior t-shirt, Senior Farewell Day, and expenses related to graduation. (Prom tickets are NOT included in Senior Dues.) Senior Dues must be paid via myschoolbucks.com.  Once you create an account, and add the student to the account, you will find your senior dues invoice highlighted. You can also click on the Invoices Store (look for the tree icon).


    MY SCHOOL BUCKS:

    Payments for Senior Dues, Prom Tickets, Field Trips, and other fees are now being accepted at www.myschoolbucks.com. Cash, check and money order payments will not be accepted at the school.
