the school from 3:35 until 7:00 p.m. We thank you for your willingness to
be committed to the faith development of your child/ren; that you are a
registered member of one of our parishes, or willing to pay non-parishioner

your support as parents of our students. Sign-up for volunteering will also
take place during the Final Registration. In This Issue

The tuition for students at SPSL School for the 2011-2012 school year is
set at $4,630 per student. Due to adjustments to this tuition amount from
parish subsidies (approximately $2,265 per student) and school Summer Solutions
fundraising efforts ($240 per student), parents who are parishioners are
asked to pay the following at a minimum: Special Notice
Dress Down Day
$2,230 one child in grades 1-8
$4,460 two children in grades 1-8 Annual Golf Tournament
$5,865 three children in grades 1-8
$6,580 four or more children in grades 1-8 Health Hint #12

Parents who are not parishioners of St. Leo Parish or St. Pius X Parish
need to contact Joyce Gubbels to discuss tuition.
The total of Registration, Book and Materials, and Technology Fees
for each child is $490. Culver's Night

Since $4,630 plus the $490 Book and Materials Fee, Registration Fee and
Technology Fee is what it costs our school to educate each child for the Fazoli's Night
2011-2012 school year, we certainly would encourage parents who are
able to pay more than the minimum tuition to do so.
