April Glide Trip

Hello Members,

Attached is the sign-ups for the last Glide trip for the 2018-2019 school year.

This trip will occur on FRIDAY APRIL 5th, WHICH IS DURING SPRING BREAK. The event will be from around 9am to 4:30 pm, so we recommend clearing out the entire day in your schedule if you wish to go. We will be taking the BART to and from San Francisco, and will be eating lunch there as well. In coordination with GLIDE, CSF can have twenty persons (including our CSF advisors and others offering supervision) go to GLIDE’s soup kitchen in San Francisco to serve lunch to the hungry of SF. GLIDE’s mission is to create an inclusive, loving community that serves to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. CSF members can help by joining them to serve lunch to the hungry for a day. Duties will include serving food, busting tables, and handing out silverware and condiments.

Grace Cathedral Food Packing Event


Hello CSF members!

We'll be packing food at the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco on Saturday, March 9th. We'll be taking the BART there and back. The entire trip will run from about 9:00am to 4:30pm, but we will only be volunteering from about 12:00pm to 2:00pm. The rest of the day will be devoted to food, club bonding, and transportation! This is a first come first serve event (we currently have 30 spots open), and those whose parents can chaperone get priority. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us, and thank you for volunteering!

Oakland Zoo Event

Hello Members,

Welcome to Second Semester! We have lots of fun and exciting events coming up for you guys this semester, and one of them includes the new Oakland Zoo event. The Oakland Zoo Arroyo Viejo Creek Volunteer morning will be held on February 16th, from 9AM-12PM. CSF will be having a bonding in the afternoon because we are provided with free tickets to the Oakland Zoo for the full day to explore.

All volunteers must arrive by 9am for a brief introduction to the Arroyo Viejo Creek, that day’s project, safety, and proper use of tools. We work on a variety of tasks that may include: pulling invasive species, spreading mulch, moving materials, or planting native plants. The projects are 100% outdoors!

Again, after volunteering, volunteers will receive a wrist band which entitles them to free admission to the Zoo for the rest of the day. Volunteers get to take one ride on the train and the skyride (when running) on the day of their volunteer service. Volunteers may also bring their own cup or bottle to get a free soda. More information will be sent in an email to those who are selected to participate. Those with parent chaperones get priority!

All participants must sign the standard Volunteer Liability Release form, and all youth under 18 must have their parent or guardian sign the Volunteer Liability Release Minor Consent Waiver form. Each minor must have a separate form. All forms must be turned in to the check-in table upon arrival the morning of the Creek Day.

Volunteers must have their own rides. If they do not have a ride, they will need to schedule themselves a carpool. Thank you to those who are willing to carpool!

To register, please head to this form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdPVSnyPKrx_5aDrCnc2FG_hbqbI1oKTex4jJuFybqZYqCp_A/viewform?usp=sf_link

Thank you! We are looking forward to a great semester.

Volunteers for CSF Banquet Needed!

Hi Members,

CSF has an end of year banquet coming up (4/29) and in order to plan and prepare for this event, we’re looking for volunteers that are willing to help us out in the planning process. 

There will be multiple opportunities for everyone that are easy, convenient, and (for some opportunities) rewarded by hours that will contribute towards the requirement for an advanced scholar diploma. Tasks that do not count as hours will go towards gaining events for lifetime membership and white gown. 

There are three sub- committees: decoration, promotion, and logistics. The form attached below provides a more in-depth description of the tasks available for volunteers.  

https://goo.gl/forms/buWiH9wA6pKmtACo1

Feel free to email us at dublinhighhcsf@gmail.com if you have any further questions!

  5. Fill out and submit the following Google Form and insert the image that you took.

As a reminder, you must donate AT LEAST 3 books in order to count as an event. This event will end April 30th; please make sure all books are donated by this date.

In order for your donation to count as an event, make sure the books are either hard-cover or paperback novels. Magazines, newspapers articles, or children's books WILL NOT be accepted. Hopefully, this works!
