RHHS Student Council
The Rose Hill High School Student Council is a very active group within the building. They are responsible for a number of student activities throughout the year. One of the main objectives of STUCO is to have all students of RHHS involved in what is taking place during the year. Members of STUCO are elected by their classmates to fill a one year term. The students listed below have been elected to representative the students of RHHS for the 2014-2015 school year. Mrs. Becki Evans is the sponsor and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Freshmen Community Service Day
What do the freshmen do for Community Service Day?
The freshmen raise money for The ARC of Butler County. The ARC of Butler County serves individuals and families of people with physical and developmental disabilities.
How do they raise money?
Students can find community members who have dump type items (old furniture, appliances, building materials, and e-waste) they want to get rid of and students and parents will pick up the items from the person’s house. A donation of $25 is suggested. More money is always welcome.
What type of help do the freshmen need on Dump Day?
We need parents with pick-up trucks and/or trailers to drive around the Rose Hill area to collect the trash. Students who help will automatically be credited $50 and will be able to go bowling on Wednesday, October 8th. Students who have a parent drive a pick-up truck will be entered into a drawing for door prizes. Unfortunately, the go-cart track is under construction so we will not be able to offer this reward.
What time will you start on Saturday, October 4th?
We will meet at 7:30 a.m. in the middle school parking lot and head out at 8:00 a.m. We will be finished when the last load is picked up. In the past we have finished between 12:00 and 1:00 p.m.
How do students let you know they have people with trash to get picked up?
Students have a half sheet of cardstock that has a list of information to get from the community member. Students will need the person's name, address, phone number, and the types of items to be picked up. Please fill this out and return to Mr. Grier, Mrs. Youse, or Mrs. Evans. We will cut these apart and give them to our drivers on Saturday. Students can pick up more cards at school from the above teachers or in the office. If you do not have any cards available, write down the person’s name, address, phone number and the type of items to be picked up on a sheet of paper and turn that in.
How do people pay?
Students can collect the money before Saturday or people can pay on Saturday when their items are picked up. Make checks payable to RHHS. Cash is always welcome. Please put it in an envelope and label who it is from.
What if the person will not be home on Saturday but still wants items collected?
Please instruct them to place the items in a visible location and label it (dump day, trash pick-up, ARC donation). Please try to have them pre-pay or they can send a check in the mail or drop a check off at the high school office. Some people have left the money in an envelope taped to the trash. This can work, but we need to know so it doesn’t get thrown away.
Can I give people a receipt?
Yes, students should have another half sheet of cardstock cards with phone numbers and a “Thank you for your donation of:” spot on it. Please cut these apart leave one with people wanting items picked-up.
How can students go bowling if they do not participate in Dump Day?
Students can ask for sponsors for the Bowl-a-Thon. Students need a minimum of $50 in donations to go bowling.
What is the $5 for class dues used for?
This money covers the cost of pizza at The Alley.
Other things you need to know:
ALL students who go bowling on Wednesday, October 8th must turn in a permission slip and class dues. Students can get these from their science teacher (Mr. Grier or Mrs. Youse), the office, or Mrs. Evans. There is an individual permission slip form, and there is one in the Bowl-a-Thon brochure.
Our goal is to get as many students as possible to participate. For some, collecting donations or asking people to have things picked up for Dump Day is a challenge. For this reason, students who help with Dump Day for the entire time will be able to go bowling because they will be credited $50. We do encourage all students to find some sponsors even if they help on Saturday.
Students who choose not to participate will stay at the high school on Wednesday, October 8th. They will rotate classes with teachers and be required to participate in learning activities. Students who do not attend school that day without a valid excuse (illness, doctor’s appointment, etc,) will have an unexcused absence for the day.
In the past, Rose Hill High School has collected between $2000-$4000 for The ARC of Butler County. This is their biggest individual fundraiser. We would like to hit the $5000 mark very soon. This year would be a great time to do it.
The class with the largest percentage of participants will win OCC points for Community Service Day.
