Review and New Rules

This is for Sophomores, Junior and Seniors



  • Some Good News, Some Bad News

  • Good New first???

  • Your STARS are not due until Nov. 22nd

  • You will not have to do a report for these first 5.

  • This year we are starting with your 4th quarter STARS from last year, because so many of you were short.

  • About 40 of you were also short on your STARS for the 3rd quarter but those were wrote off so you better be grateful (We still know who you are)

  • So the most anybody has to make up will be 10 STARS, if you don’t try we will do our best to make your life miserable.

Bad news
BAD News

  • The 22nd is only about 10 days away

  • Some of you need 10 STARS before that day

  • But you still have time to put your summer STARS in.

  • You must be caught up on STARS to be eligible for National Honor Society and maybe to even qualify for Honor Roll in December.


  • You should think today, what you did this last summer which could be used for STARS, Sorry, TV watching doesn't count

  • You will have until November 22ndto get in your summer STARS, any not handed in by then will be void.

  • The max you can do for one thing is 5 hours. You can get one sheet for all 5 hours. But for the next quarter you will have to do something else.

  • There are exceptions…

More on star sheets
More on STAR Sheets

  • This year STARS will require more details

  • You will have to say why you are doing this

  • How old is the person you are doing it for.

  • What is the needthis person has for your assistance

  • Is this a business? (how can it be charity if it is a business?)

  • No Relative means: They can’t be your mom or dad, grandma or grandpa, uncle or aunt, great uncle or aunt, cousin etc…

  • Your parents signature don’t count. The person’s name and phone number must be on the STAR sheet

Difference between pre approved and non pre approved
Difference between pre-approved and non- pre- approved

  • All pre-approved STARS can be filled out and will be accepted without any problem

  • (presuming they are signed and dated, etc..)

  • We will add more things to the pre-approved list as people make suggestions

  • For extra credit to be used to up your religion grade all STARS have to be pre-approved

  • The list of pre-approved is in your classroom

What about non pre approved
What about non pre-approved

  • The rules have changed

  • You know have to explain, in detail, why this was a charitable deed and worthy of STARS

  • Many times people will have two words describing vaguely what they did. These will immediately be rejected.

  • We will have some long form STARS available where you will write on the back a detail explanation on why these are worthwhile. If you don’t make a good case they will be rejected.

  • Now if you explain to a priest what you did and he thinks it is worthwhile, he can sign the back and allow it to proceed.
