    And it can be a costly time for students and parents as they wade through a flood of buying opportunities to mark the final year of grade school.

    Making plans for prom, class trips and applying to colleges doesn't come cheap, but many students and parents who don’t fully realize the price tag that comes with senior year may be feeling sticker shock by the time graduation arrives.
