Student Policies and Procedures

Please read and follow the below policies and procedures for participating in the Dollars for Scholars program.

Volunteering Opportunities

There are a number of volunteering opportunities for students throughout the year in Washburn.  All events and activities are announced throughout the school and on the website.  If you are interested in volunteering for an event, please contact a local Board Member or sign up at the High School Office. 


Helpful Hints:
 

  • Be sure to ask questions if you need further clarification on the opportunity.
     
  • Don't forget to ask for a contact phone number on the day of the opportunity in the event you need to reach the sponsor.
     
  • Don't forget to ask for directions, start & end times, and if there are any dress code requirements
     
  • If you have to cancel your commitment, CALL the sponsor ASAP! Never just 'don't show up'.
     
  • Remember you are representing yourself and the Dollars for Scholars program. Many organizations that request Dollars for Scholars volunteers also donate to the scholarship fund so please be courteous, on-time and work hard.
