Community Service

Students in 6th – 8th grade and all 9th – 12th grade students are required to complete volunteer/service hours. The time our students spend volunteering makes a difference in our community, and helps students learn more about themselves. Volunteering also helps students discover their individual passions that can help make the world a better place!

Community Service Requirements
Students have an entire school year to complete their service hours. All service hours are due on May 1st of each year.

How does community service work?

Students need to select a place to volunteer, take their service sheet with them, have the person supervising them complete the back of their service sheet with the name of the organization, their name, and contact information. Then, have an adult sign off on the time they volunteered.

Once a student has reached their community service goal, they need to complete the reflection sheet and submit the volunteer hour sheet and reflection sheet to Ms. Hawthorne. She has a mailbox at the middle/high school campus in the front office.

Middle School
6th Grade – 10 hours
7th Grade – 12 hours
8th Grade – 15 hours

High School
Completing a 100 hours of community service is strongly recommended in high school. To make this goal achievable, high school students are encouraged to complete 25 hours/year.

Why is community service so highly recommended?

Community service on a college application shows that a student is interested in giving back to his/her community. Community service also helps a student get to know themselves. Knowing oneself might lead a student to discover his/her personal passion for making a difference in the lives of others. This might just affect the community for the better for years to come!
