Community Service Day and Spring Fling Planned for April 18

Tyrone High School’s annual Community Service Project, followed by the Spring Fling are both planned for Thursday, April 18, the day before Easter Break.

The students will begin the day by working on spring cleanup projects at the school and across the Tyrone community.  

After lunch, they will participate in a school community celebration at the annual Spring Fling.

Last year’s community service day was a huge success (see photo slideshow above) with spring cleanup projects completed all over the community.

Students in grades 10-12 will go into the community to work on spring clean up and community improvement projects. Freshman will work on the TASD campus at both buildings, the track and ball fields.

All students are invited to participate. Permission slips have already been distributed by homeroom teachers. Students MUST submit a completed and signed form in order to participate.  Any student who did not receive a permission slip should see their homeroom teacher.

New for the freshman and sophomore classes this year is a graduation requirement for at least 15 hours of community service.  Participation in the community service day each year of their high school career will fulfill the community service requirement.  Students who do not participate will have to submit proof of community service to meet the school board approved graduation requirements.

Students who do not choose to participate will spend the morning in silent sustained reading study hall with Mr. Hock in the band room.

GACTC students are invited to join in on the fun, but they too must turn in a permission slip.

Students will sign up for projects on a form that will be posted on the Eagle Eye on Monday, April 8.

Students in grades 10-12 will walk to and from all destinations. Students will be given a vest, gloves, a bottle of water and trash bag in the morning.

Students should wear work clothes, comfortable working/walking shoes and bring bottled water. Students should be prepared to get a little wet or dirty. No flip-flops will be permitted. Dress for the weather. If it is a sunny day, students should bring hats, sunglasses, sunscreen. Students are reminded that they still must follow the dress code, so even though it may be hot out, appropriate clothing is required.

Students may also bring a change of clothes for the Spring Fling, which will occur after lunch on the same day.

In the event of bad weather, the Community Service event will be moved to May 3. The Spring Fling will still take place as scheduled.

All students will return in time for lunches. A lunch will be at 10:40, B lunch at 11:13, C lunch at 11:46 (lunches will include a free Hershey Ice Cream treat, even for packers, courtesy of the Nutrition Group)

Students who arrive late to school will spend the morning in SSR with Mr. Hock. If that student has a permission slip and signed up to work at one of the high school sites they may join their crew.

Students are expected to attend on the day of Community Service and the Spring Fling. Students who choose to not be present for part or all of the day they will be listed as unexcused unless they bring in an excuse from home.
