Yes but we go to private school. 

Everything has a price.

My oldest son has been in Catholic school since kindergarten and every year there was a re-registration fee that was so annoying.
In September, both boys are going to public school, and there's no fee :-)

The "book fee" is $80 in elementary and it only goes up from there.

I don't think any of the schools here charge a fee.

Yikes. Yes, my son who will be in 2nd grade next year just had a tuition increase to $3400.00. This does not include registration, book, computer and other misc. fees. He attends a private parochial school. Public school in this town is not an option. We continually make all the "Worst Lists" from Forbes and other magazines for poor education among many other things. Unfortunately all of our family is here and we are not in a position to move elsewhere. So I suck it up and pay for it. Another option: Homeschool. I ultimately think that would short change him. I want him smarter than me (lol), socialization with his peers and the other positive aspects that schools do offer.

I understand where you are coming from. I just know I couldn't afford that.
