Current 12th graders must complete 40 hours of volunteering as part of their high school graduation requirement by January 27, 2014. The types of service that are acceptable are volunteering at a non-profit site or for a non-profit activity (for example the Red Cross, public libraries, museums, Boys and Girls Clubs, Police PAL sites, elementary and middle schools, sports groups like AYSO and Pop Warner, walk-a-thons, beach clean-ups, and the Special Olympics). You may not volunteer at a for-profit business. You are not to provide free labor for such places as an office, grocery store, department store, or restaurant.
Remember to turn in your completed Student Service Learning Logs to Miss Gildon, the Service Learning Coordinator, at the College and Career Center in Room 332:
- Before each deadline which are usually once a month
Your hours will be verified and recorded in the District computer system by Miss Gildon. Hours submitted will appear on your progress reports and graduation check and will be continually updated as you submit new hours. Additional service learning manuals, log sheets, and service learning opportunities are available at the College and Career Center in Room 332.
