Grateful Grads

  • Purpose: 
    The mission of the Grateful Grads is to be an Active, Visible, and Positive role model within Lake Dallas High School and the community.

    • Model and teach our LDHS students to make eye contact, extend a handshake, and respond with a warm smile and a "Good morning." 
    • Allows students to see the caring nature and support of our community as they enter school.
    • This program provides a way for LDHS supporters to 'give a hand' with the kids at school.


    Devote 1 Monday or more a month to greet the students of LDHS from 7:40 – 8:15 at designated school entrances.

    7:30 – 7:40     Initially upon entering the campus, please sign-in at the Front Office and get your volunteer badge. The Grateful Grads Coordinator or a campus representative will be there to greet you.  You will pick up candy or items and be assigned an area of the school to meet students.
