Volunteering - Our Anti-Drug Program
If a student fails to demonstrate hard work and a good positive behavior, they will be sent home from the activity and not allowed to participate in a volunteer activity again for the current school year. If a student fails to show up for an activity that they signed up for, they will be put on probation from volunteering for one semester. Upon second occurrence of a failed appearance, that student will be prohibited from volunteering for the rest of the school year. All SADD members will be given the phone numbers to the adviser and all officers. It is your responsibility to inform the adviser or an officer if you will not be able to make an assigned activity. Never sign up for an activity that you know you will not be able to attend.
Registering For Activities
Students must be an active member of SADD and an active participant in club activities. Students must have accumulated a total of 30 hours of service to be eligible for the field trip.
