Information For Seniors

Dear Parents and Guardians of the CLASS of 2018,

Congratulations for making it to senior year! This will be a busy year, but we have many exciting and fun events planned as well. Your parent class representative is Donna Carlin. Please feel free to contact me at or Donna at with any questions.

We know families are eager to learn about the costs associated with senior year, specifically senior dues (mandatory $210), the senior trip and prom (both optional).  If your child participates in all senior activities, the total cost will be $720.  Payments can be made online or by money order/certified bank check.   Please note that we cannot accept personal checks. Please see the attached documents for a breakdown of senior year payments, the photo package, Remind instructions, and the payment schedule.

Reminders for payment deadlines are posted on Engrade in the course titled, “Senior Class 2018” and through the REMIND app.  If you would like to receive notices via text or email, please sign up for the REMIND notifications here:  (Instructions are attached as well.)

Financial aid will be available, but in order to qualify, you will need to submit a school lunch form AND a quick Google survey by October 6th.  Once we understand the need for financial aid, we will be able to provide some assistance.

Please also be advised that all senior activities are a privilege, including the senior trip and prom and can be revoked at any time if students fail to meet the NYC DOE attendance requirement, violate our drug and alcohol policy, or fail multiple classes and/or any class required for graduation.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email or at the number listed below.

Thank you for your continued support.
