8th grade families 

yearbook advertisements
Attention 8th grade parents - Each year the school produces The Simon Baruch Review, the annual yearbook.  In the past, many parents have expressed an interest in offering personal congratulations to graduates through yearbook advertisements.  These advertisements also help to defer the cost of the yearbook.

Two types of personal ads are available:

Option #1  $20.00
Business card size with personal message 
(approx 2" x 3")

Option #2  $35.00
1/4 page size with personal message and optional photo 
(approx 3.5" x 4.75")

The deadline for all advertising is March 20

You should have received a form home via backpack for advertising in the yearbook.  Forms should be completed and returned to Ms. Rade by March 20.  (Hope to have that form in the next Blast from the Yearbook Committee)  

Payment must accompany ad forms.  Checks should be made out to The General Fund of JHS 104.

Any questions please email

senior dues
8th grade student families should have received home a letter regarding Senior Dues.  Here are the highlights:

Beginning February 2, Senior Dues will start being collected from graduating students.  The fee is $75 per student and will be collected in the main office, during homeroom period.   (students should check with their homeroom teacher before coming to the main office)  Graduation will be held on Tuesday, June 23, 2015.  

Senior Dues can be paid in cash or check.  Checks should be written to "General Fund of JHS 104." 

Senior Dues fees are needed to offset the many costs associated with graduation including but not limited to:   rental cost for Hunter College's large auditorium to accommodate the large capacity, security, tickets, flower arrangement, programs, diplomas, student awards, senior buttons, transportation of the color guard and equipment and the senior school yearbook.

All students who submit payment of Senior Dues will receive a senior button and a yearbook in June.  Tickets for graduation will be distributed in June and each student will receive four.  Additional tickets will be given only to those students who have paid senior dues and have a written request from a parent.  Additional tickets are limited and given out on a first come, first served basis in order to not exceed auditorium capacity.

Please be aware that Senior Dues DO NOT cover the expense for the Senior Trip, Cap and Gown and the Senior Prom.  These are separate expenses that will be paid at a later date.  Information on those will be provided later in the year.

Any residual funds from Senior Dues will be used to support School-Wide programs such as Baruch Bucks, after school sports, arts and academic programs.   Additionally, residual funds will be used to cover costs for families in need of financial assistance for senior expenses.
