Dolphin Pride



All students at Dana Hills High School are eligible for this award which is based on satisfactory academic achievement, outstanding attendance, outstanding citizenship, and school service. 

Applications to earn this award are due to Mr. Nedler, Activities Director by October 1, 2014

Applications turned in after October 1, 2014 will not be accepted.


Academic Achievement:  Maintain a minimum of 2.5 GPA with no D or F grades on first semester report card and no D’s or F’s through the spring 12-week progress report (May 2013).

Citizenship:  No “N” or “U” marks in citizenship on all progress reports and semester report cards.

Attendance:  No more than two tardies (including “G” excused tardies) per class per semester and no more than a total of ten tardies for the academic school year. No truancies (period or day). No more than five absences (for any reason other than school events/business) for the academic school year. In the event of serious illness, the candidate can provide a doctor’s note and the five absence rule will be reviewed by the Principal and the Activities Director.

School Service:  15 hours of school service. There are now only seven pre-approved school service organizations that you may work for in order to receive school credit. They are PTSA, Dolphin Force, Grad Nite, the Library and any CUSD approved tutoring or instructional program, along with the donation of home-made baked goods to school events and donation of blood to school-sponsored blood drives.. No credit will be given for service hours with teachers or teams, nor for individual tutoring. No hour credit will be given for any items donated that were not home-made. (i.e., donations of food, water, sodas, etc.) Students must turn in service hour log cards and verify hours as indicated on log card. Late turn in or incomplete hour log cards result in no credit given.

Examples of school service:

Donation of Baked Goods:

A maximum of three (3) total hours will be given throughout the school year for donated items. All baked goods donated must be home made. No credit will be given for store bought items.

Blood Donations:

Two (2) hours will be given to a student for each blood donation. Limit of two blood drives per year.

Maximum of Eight (8) Volunteer Hours Per Day

School service maximum hour-per-day guidelines shall be aligned with the California labor laws specifying that a minor may not work for more than 8 hours per day. 

Meetings: There is an informational meeting scheduled on October 1, 2014 in the porthole theatre to explain all rules regarding Dolphin Pride. Students may still participate in the program if they do not attend the meeting, however, they are responsible for the understanding of all aspects of this program. Failure to follow the rules of the program will result in disqualification from the award. This award recognizes student responsibility. As the student, you alone are held responsible.

Web Site: www.dhhs.net/dpaward is our program web page. Please check regularly for updated information. I will post service opportunities there as they become available. Emails will not be sent out to remind you of opportunities.
