  • Wait for it,,,senior year is a hoot! Class ring, senior pics, grad night, on top of everything you just mentioned. One good thing about our high school is they have payment plans. I was able to pay dd's class ring off in three payments. I have a whole year to pick out dd's senior portrait package, and same with paying for the yearbook. So, just remember to keep notes of what still needs to be payed for...

  • My son goes to a private HS, but we don't pay for student ID card, insurance, or games. He has to pay $1,000 jut to play hockey though.

  • Well, I think the cost of Sports can be a bit crazy! Here it is $165 per sport per kid!
    Even though we make decent money, that's a bit much when you add it up to possibly 4 kids playing a couple of sports a year. Does not matter what sport it is either.

    I am dreading senior year! Yikes! I have my first one next year.

  • The schools cannot pay for it all themselves, since educational funding takes a back burner. The parents have to help if they want their kids to participate.
