What is CSF?
CSF stands for the California Scholastic Federation. We are a scholastic club with a community service element. There are scholastic qualifications to be part of this club. We are a chapter of the state organization of CSF. The motto of CSF is "scholarship for service". Please see the CSF website for more information on the history, origin, and purpose of the organization.
Membership vs Active Member?
You can be a member of CSF without participating in the community service portion, however you will not be considered an "active" member. Non-active members can not qualify for as many awards at the end of their senior year as the active members. We encourage all members to be active, but please be aware that if your schedule can not accommodate attending the community service events, then we suggest being a non-active member. We only allow three absences per semester. If you have more than three, then you will not be active for CSF for that particular semester. In order to qualify as an active member you must attend the meetings and get 10 hours of CSF sponsored community service per semester and participate in a fundraiser. Please see the minutes page of this site for our meeting power points that cover CSF approved and sponsored events.
CSF Community Service Requirements
In order to keep the integrity of being a CSF member, our club requires that in order to be an "active" member of CSF, you must perform your CSF community service hour requirements with the club at CSF club sponsored events. Each week at the meeting we provide a list and explanation of the upcoming opportunities of CSF sponsored events. In addition, the events are posted this website in the power points. If you have an event you want to be CSF approved, please use the CSF approval form below. Being an "active" member is optional.
You can still be a member of CSF without being active, solely based on your GPA. See the awards section to understand how that can affect your senior award status.
Here are the requirements for being an "active" member for CSF"
*10 hours of CSF approved events
*only 2 hours can be from donations
*Regular attendance at the Tuesday lunch meetings (you may have up to 3 absences)
All community service hours need to be in a "CSF sponsored" event. This means you must get approval before the event takes place or you perform the hours in order for it to be counted as CSF approved. Click on the following form to apply for an event you want to be approved:
Community Service Event Form - Please bring this form with you when you complete your hours in order to get the supervisor to sign you off!!! Mrs. Arban and can not sign you off on something that we did not see you at.
