2020-21 School Fees

2020-21 School Fees: $65 per child for Kindergarten, $66 per child for Grades 1-6, and $60 per child for Grade 7 students.

Fees collected cover costs of school supplies (school will purchase), student agendas, and enrichment learning events and activities (see below for fee breakdown)

In accordance with NV School Board Policy 706 School Fees, Elementary School Fees are established each spring for the following school year.  All school fee amounts are set at cost-recovery, payable to the school at the beginning of the school year.  Fees for Queen Mary for the 2020-2021 school year are set to recover costs of "consumable" supplies (paper, pencils, erasers, markers, glue, scissors etc.).  All students in Grade 1-6 will also receive an agenda book that includes Queen Mary-specific information.

For the 2020-21 school year, the teachers will be purchasing all necessary school supplies for all students through our own suppliers, to ensure consistent quality and quantity of materials is available for all students at all times.  This means you do NOT need to shop for or send school supplies for your children. 

Queen Mary's fees for 2020-20 are broken down as follows:

Kindergarten: School supplies - $50    Enrichment learning fee - $15     TOTAL: $65 per child  

Grades 1-6:  School supplies - $45         Agenda - $6         Enrichment learning fee $15        TOTAL: $66 per child

Grades 7:  School supplies - $45          Enrichment learning fee $15        TOTAL: $60 per child   *Grade 7 teachers have opted out of agendas, as students tend to use their own devices for calendar items

The $15 fee enrichment learning activities provides funds to cover a portion of costs associated with performance groups, workshops, and programs to support our P.E curriculum (E.g.,  A tennis program, that will take place in P.E. classes, has  booked for all classes).

Note: Fees are optional. As per the NVSD school fees policy, if you would prefer to purchase the necessary supplies yourself, you can do so – if choosing this option please pick up a school supplies list from the office to ensure your child has all items required for the start of the school year. ​ If opting to purchase school supplies yourselves, you can access the school supplies lists posted under the "parents" tab LINK HERE

Please contact the school office if you have questions or need more information.
