Community Service

  • Seniors MUST turn in all community service logs to Mrs. Van Every in the Counseling Office by Friday April 19, 2024, 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 are given to those services completed outside of the normal school day.  
    Hours for donations will not be accepted

    There will be some DSHS  clubs and organizations that will give hours for donated items. However, those earning the Principal's Service Award will not receive hours for those donations given. 

    Dripping Springs High School offers the Principal's Service Award to any senior who has completed the required number of community service hours that were earned during their high school years.  

    Those who have volunteer opportunities that they would like to post on this page, please contact Kim Van Every in the Counseling Office.
