As I look through my child’s Karigon school supply list, I noticed a $10 fee for “special activities”. Perplexed on what special activities are being done, I looked at other supply list in Karigon and throughout the district. Schools like Tesago and Arongen do not ask for extra money. Why is my child asked to send in extra? What special activities will this money be used for?

A. The district policy on school supplies states:  Teachers may request up to $10 during the course of the year for special projects that will complement the curriculum or for student recognition activities. Grade level activity accounts must be established with the district for deposit and use of these funds. See the complete policy here: http://www.shenet.org/school-supplies/
