Why do I have to pay class dues?
Students and parents have asked why class dues are so high and how the money is spent. Here is a list of what class dues pay for:
· Float Building. All class dues pay for that class's tissue pumps, chicken wire, building materials, trailer (if needed), and other expenses related to float building.
· Stunt Night. All class dues pay for that class's paint for flats, props, set pieces, costumes, and other expenses related to Stunt Night. Students cannot participate in Stunt Night or attend float building unless they have paid their class dues.
· Prom. Junior dues pay for the rental fees for the location, all food and beverages, decorations, favors, invitations, and other expenses for prom.
· Graduation. Senior dues pay for the rental fees for the location, caps and gowns, security, decorations, and other expenses for graduation. Seniors must have paid both their junior and senior dues in order to participate in graduation ceremony. Caps and gowns will not be distributed to students that have not paid both their junior and senior dues.
· Senior Gift. Frequently, the Senior Class will choose to make a gift to the school with the monies in their account. This is how Druid Hills acquired the stone sign in front of the school.
