The Dance Department’s fair share is the amount per student it takes to meet the Dance Booster’s Budget for the entire school year.
The sole purpose of the fair share is to provide enrichment experiences for each student. It is extremely important that you as a parent and the student understand that without this fee we would not be able to produce quality dance
Please note……..Students may earn the money through fundraising. Students will be credited the correct percentage allowed for their profit (typically students get 50% of the profit) earned from each fundraiser until their fair share is met. The balance (fair share that is not raised though fundraising) that is left at the end of the semester will be expected to be paid.
Each student should plan how she or he will meet their fair share at the beginning of the semester. This program is designed so that no student should have to pay any money out of his or her own pocket or seek parental financial assistance, if an effort is made.
**Participation in fundraisers is not required, if a parent/student chooses to pay the fair share straight out.
Checks payable to GMHS Dance Boosters Inc
Example of Fair share earnings:
Box of candy purchased at $16 with 30 pieces to be sold at $1 each will equal $30 income. The total income minus the cost of the box ($30-$16) will give a $14 profit. 50% of the profit $7 will be added to the student's account.
Fair Share amounts
The fair share is $35 per student. Students with multiple classes within the same semester will add $20 per class after the first.
Fair share for IB is $75.
