Spring Semester 2021

Tracking Community Service Hours: There is a new process for students to track their community service hours. (If a student does more than 100 hours of service between summer before 9th grade and September of their senior year, it can appear on their transcript.) Tracking hours involves two steps:

     1. Follow the Gunn Community Service Guidelines.

     2. Complete the Gunn High School Community Service form.

Hours tracked on the old yellow paper form will still be counted. Students just need to enter as much information as they can from the old form onto the new Gunn High School Community Service form. The deadline for rising seniors (Class of 2022) to submit this form is Sept 3, 2021.
