Weekly Communicator – Wednesday, March 26, 2014


Each family is required to be a member of the Home and School Association.  As outlined in the Home and School Association Handbook, as a member, each family is expected to pay $20.00 annual membership dues, and perform twenty eight (28) hours of volunteer time benefiting the School, also known as Banked Hours.  If the family chooses, they will have the option to buy out and pay $300.00 ($20.00 annual dues and $280.00 volunteer buyout), rather than volunteer hours.  Unpaid dues and banked hours shall be added to the cost of tuition for the following year.”
