Please send the fee form and payment (cash/ check/money order, made out to Waters Elementary) with your eldest child. Include student name and room number for every student in your family and submit to the eldest child’s teacher. Please note the student fee is separate from the cost of classroom supplies that students are also asked to purchase. A fee waiver form is available in the office if you cannot afford the fee
