Grade Dues & Reimbursements

Grade Dues

The JSSPVA collects grade dues for each grade level. These are collected to help cover the costs of class parties throughout the year.  There are typically 3-4 parties (Halloween, Holiday, Valentine’s Day, End of Year Party).  Some grades may also have a special party for other Sears traditions, for example, 5th Graders put on the “We The People Play” and there is usually a dessert reception to follow.

The suggestion donation is $30 per student for grades K-7 and $20 for Jr. Kindergarten.  8th graders have higher dues set by the room parents due to the higher volume of activities/traditions along with graduation planning and festivities.  If you have a student in the 8th grade, please reach out to the treasurer ( or the past treasurer ( and they will be able to tell you the amount for the current 8th grade year as it tends to fluctuate year to year.
