  • Squires Singers Fee

    The application mentioned a $10 fee that would be collected later. This fee covers the Squires Singers shirt as well as music and materials for our performances and rehearsals.

    You can send the $10 to Mr. Ragland (not the homeroom teachers) in cash or check made out to Squires Elementary. Please make sure the student's name is on the memo line for record-keeping purposes.

    Thanks again for allowing your student to be part of the fun!

    Mr. R
