Senior dues will cover all Graduation and Senior Activities for the 2016-2017 school year. P.S. 182 created a school fundraiser to help offset the cost of the package below for parents/guardians. Please refer to the second notice (attached) regarding our chocolate fundraiser. Our intention is to make all costs economically feasible for our families.  If the recommended amount of boxes of chocolate is sold, all graduation and senior activity dues will be covered. If you choose not to participate in the fundraiser, a full payment of $150.00 will be due to “P.S. 182” by cash or money order on or before Wednesday, April 19, 2017 (no personal checks will be accepted).
