As the traditional host of the Prom, members of the Junior Class are responsible for the majority of the cost of the Prom. As a result, Juniors are asked to pay dues.
What does Junior Dues Pay for? Most of the cost of Prom your Junior Year (ticket sales make up the rest). Paying Junior Dues also makes you eligible to purchase discounted Prom Tickets both Junior and Senior Year ($20 as opposed to $95 for those who don't pay dues). The official Junior Class T-Shirt.
Payment will be made using the MyPayments Plus System. (www.mypaymentsplus.com).

NGHS Prom FAQ
Why do I have to pay Junior Dues? There are no Junior Dues this year. We will continue with Junior Dues starting with the Class of 2023. For future reference, Junior Dues pay for some of the cost of producing the Prom. We use Junior Dues as the primary fundraising tool for Prom--which keeps the ticket price low for everyone who pays their class dues ($20 as opposed to $95 for those who don't pay dues).
I transferred to NGHS during my Senior Year. Do I have to pay Junior Dues? In 2021, all tickets will be $40. For future reference: since Junior Dues pays for part of the prom Junior and Senior Year, Senior Transfer students are asked to pay 1/2 of the original fee--before all the late fees were added in.
