8th Grade – Senior Dues

It is our pleasure to announce the upcoming senior activities taking place this year for your child as they make the transition from middle school to high school.


  • Senior Dance will be held on Wednesday, June 17, 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Grand Prospect Hall, located at 263 Prospect Avenue in Brooklyn. The dance includes a buffet dinner, dessert and sodas/juices.
  • Graduation will be held on Thursday, June 18, 10:00 a.m., at the John Jay Educational Complex, located at 237 7th Avenue. Each family will receive four tickets to the event.
  • The Six Flags Great Adventure senior trip will be held on Wednesday, June 10.  We will be departing from school at 8:30AM and returning to school around 5:00PM.


The total for Senior Dues is $176 per student, and includes yearbook, class of 2015 t-shirt, cap and gown, senior dance, transportation/entrance to Six Flags Great Adventure.  However, we are asking families to pay $186 to offset the cost for students who cannot afford the full amount.


Families may pay in one full payment or in three equal payments of $62 each
(due 3/13, 4/2, and 4/30.)  Please make all checks payable to MS 447, and submit
payment to Amy Sirot.  Full payment will be accepted any time before April 30, 2015.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Amy Sirot, Parent Coordinator (parentcoordinator447@gmail.com).  Also, if you wish to donate toward a scholarship, please do so by including the additional amount in your payment.

Finally, all senior activities are contingent on academic standing and behavior.  If your child exhibits inappropriate behavior or is in poor academic standing, your child may not be permitted to attend a particular activity, as determined by the 8th grade staff and administration.  Please note: We cannot refund any money after May 4, including cases in which your child has been excluded for behavior.


We look forward to the excitement of the next few months!
