It's hard to estimate how much a high school student spends on extras during four years of school--the dances, proms, pictures, yearbooks, football and basketball games, class rings, school concerts, caps and gowns, to name a few. The Fullerton Union High School student newspaper, the Pleiades, took a stab at figuring it out. The paper estimated that the average student at Fullerton spends $1,327 for the school extras, not including things like lunch, fund-raisers, raffles, paper, pencils etc.

Ditsy Chrissy, sassy Janet and oversexed Jack--the wacky roomies in the old "Three's Company" TV sitcom--have a lineage far more distinguished than you may know.
