Community Service Hours
It is each student's responsibility to check his/her Community Service Hours (CSH) for accuracy in Skyward and report discrepancies to the Media Center staff.
The deadline for turning in your CSH to Ms. JoEllen Smith is the end of the second trimester. CHS may be submitted as soon as you have completed your 40 hours.
CSH can be submitted only for volunteering for non-profit agencies or individuals. You cannot submit hours for work performed at businesses.
If you do not have your CSH completed, check the Daily Announcements for information regarding opportunities around the community.
If you have not received your letter of completion from the Community Service Advisory Board, you may not have not met your graduation requirement.
Class Dues Statement
Each graduating class collects class dues from each student to offset the number of necessary fund raiser activities needed for satisfying class financial obligations. Class dues and fund raiser monies are utilized for the purpose of covering costs such as homecoming events, floats, snowgoing activities, window painting, banner making, lip-sync activities, class t-shirts, senior yearbooks, junior/senior prom, senior flowers for graduation and spirit week competitions in addition to other expenses that may occur. Questions regarding class activities and finances should be directed to the class advisors.
Class dues must be paid by the end of each school year, or the student may be placed on social probation. Refer to Billing, Class Dues, and Community Service in the Student Code of Conduct section of the handbook.
Dues are $40. This can be paid all at once -- or at least $10 per year.
To avoid social probation, students need to have:
$10 of class dues paid and 10 hours of community service hours turned in by the first day of school their sophomore year.
$20 of class dues paid and 20 hours of community service turned in by the first day of their junior year.
$30 of class dues paid and 30 hours of community service turned in by the first day of their senior year.
$40 of class dues and 40 hours of community service by March 1 of their senior year.
If dues are not paid by the senior year, the student may be in jeopardy of not participation in the graduation ceremony.
Please make dues payable to "GHS Class of _____" and enter the student's graduation year. They may be mailed to the advisors at GHS, or students can hand deliver them. Cash is accepted.
Class advisors are responsible for approving spending and all other financial decisions, along with collecting and tracking class dues.
