Community Service

  • Seniors MUST turn in all community service logs to Mrs. Van Every in the counseling office by Friday April 23, 2021 in order for the hours to go towards the Principals Volunteer Award.    Hours turned in after this date will not receive the award.  


    Students are encouraged to become involved in their community to help develop their social skills, gain valuable work experience, and contribute to the betterment of their community. Community service hours are also considered for acceptance into many colleges and universities in Texas and throughout the nation. Community Service hours will not be given for donation of items.

    Dripping Springs High School offers The Principal's Volunteer Service Award to any senior who has completed the required number of community service hours.
     
    If you have volunteer opportunities that you would like posted on this page, please contact Kim Van Every in the counseling office.
