Class Dues for the 2018-2019 school year
May 15, 2019
Dear Freshmen, Sophomore and Junior Families:
We hope the 2018-19 school year has been filled with lots of great events as your high school student makes lasting memories with his/her classmates. Homecoming, Sadies, Mini-THON, basketball and volleyball tournaments, sporting events, concerts and performances, and numerous club activities have made for an exciting year at USCHS. It’s hard to believe that summer is only a few short weeks away.
Before we bring the 2018-19 school year to a close, we need to apologize and ask for your assistance. At the beginning the year, we had shared with you our plans to move the Class Dues process online. Unfortunately, there were unforeseen complications in making this happen. Therefore, to date, we have only collected 2018-19 Class Dues (via personal check) from our graduating seniors. In order to catch up, we need to collect Class Dues from our current freshmen, sophomore and junior families.
Class Dues Explanation:
- All Upper St. Clair High School students are asked to pay an annual Class Dues of $50 - for a four-year total of $200.
- The Class Dues system was implemented several years ago to replace class fundraisers and has been overwhelmingly successful. Class Dues are used to cover the cost of your child’s senior t-shirt, five senior breakfasts, the senior picnic, the senior banquet, prom ticket, graduation cap and gown, and graduation expenses.
- Students who do not participate in Class Dues each year will be charged a prorated fee for each class-sponsored senior year event they choose to attend. For example, if a student paid only three years of dues ($150), he/she would pay 25 percent of the charge to attend each event. Likewise, if he/she paid two years of dues ($100), he/she would pay 50 percent of the charge.
To pay your student’s Class Dues, please enclose your check (payable to USCHS) along with the completed Class Dues form in an envelope clearly marked CLASS DUES, your child’s name and Class of 20XX. Envelopes can be dropped off in the Activities Office (located in cafe321, adjacent to the cafeteria), in the main office, or mailed to the high school:
Upper St. Clair High School
ATTN. Activities Office – Class Dues
1825 McLaughlin Run Road
Upper St. Clair, PA. 15241
Please note that this fall we will be collecting Class Dues for the 2019-20 school year. Should you wish, families are welcome to pay their 2019-20 dues now (for a total of $100) – rather than waiting until fall.
We ask that you please forward your payment by Friday, June 7, 2019. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding Class Dues, please contact Brooke Tarcson, activities coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, we apologize for the delay and hope that we can move to an online payment process in the future. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
