Belles earn service hours for participating in any "Belle sponsored" event. 

*In order to schedule the Spring Formal at least half of membership must be in good standing and able to participate.  Good standing includes: GPA requirements, submitting community service hours (or paying for them) and maintaining excellent behavior.   Please note the following from the STUDENT HANDBOOK:

Belle Semi-Formal


The Belle semi-formal will be held on Saturday.  Students are required to exhibit appropriate behavior and are expected to follow all school rules.  In order to attend students must be in attendance at school for the full day before the dance, students cannot attend if they have had OSS in the current school year, or owe a debt. Appeals are accepted prior to the Belle semi-formal for Belle members only.  Students will be notified of the appeal decision within one week of the appeal’s submission.  Students that owe cafeteria and/or library debts will not be able to participate until the debt is paid in full.  Guests may not appeal (this means guests must not have any OSS during the school year).


We understand our members are in middle school so we try to make it as easy as possible for them to earn service hours. 

 A FEW ways to earn service hours:
  • volunteering at church
  • helping a girl scout group
  • helping a teacher at school
  • volunteering at another community event
  • helping out at home, a neighbor/elderly person or even babysitting WITHOUT PAY!!
the key word and concept is WITHOUT PAY


Have an idea or suggestion for a Belle service opportunity please contact 
Mrs. McKinney or Mrs. Rickertsen!
