$168 for second grade

I knew registration was going up, but that's about $40 more than last year, per student. I guess I should be happy we don't have to pay for supplies too, and they let us buy our own as cheaply or as expensive as we like. What's your registration fee this year? Did it go up?

  • My sons not in school yet. But when I was in school in California it didn't cost anything unless you paid for the bus or had prepayed lunches. What state are you in?

  • I'm in the same boat as Morgain.

  • Indiana. I know IL and CO have them, too, and that TX doesn't. Every state is different.

  • We paid $90 for our fifth-grader and $65 for our kindergartner. Then, we bought supplies for both kids and their classrooms (markers, scissors, glue--usual kids' supplies--and paper towels, hand sanitizer, tissues, disinfectant wipes, etc. for the classrooms). I thought about adding up the cost of the supplies, but I didn't want to get depressed.

  • Is that a private school registration fee? Because that's cheap for private school!

    Mine started middle school last week, and we got hit up all at once for the student body card, gym uniform, yearbook, photos, PTSA.. only the uniform was required and that was $20. All the rest was around $80. Then we had to buy his supplies, which was around $30 more.

  • There is not a registration fee at my children's school. They do however ask each parent for $5 for each student they have going there for C-Scope Materials. I will find out tonight what that is.

  • If I enrolled BOTH kids it would have been $100 for registration fees; $100 for recess milk (required) and $45 for 2 weeks of hot lunch (optional). So I would have been paying $245 for both of my kids ($123 per child) . I could save $45 by not doing hot lunches, but during the school year, when my kids went, I had them do a hot lunch. It was easier for me to do that then worry about packing a lunch, etc. If I enrolled them this year they would have been in 3rd and 4th grade.

    For 6, 7, 8th the registration fee jumps to $75 per child. There is NO recess milk, but there is a required roller skating fee of $15. Lunch is still the same cost. So that would make it $113 per child. I have no idea what it for the high school!!

    No, that's public school. Tuition for the private schools around here run $2-3k for the first child and another thousand each additional.
