Students and Community Service

As part of the requirements for the "Driven to Succeed" program, and college/scholarship applications, our high school seniors need documented community service hours. To help coordinate this effort, Mrs. Harris will be putting together a weekly list of available community service options for students. If your business, organization, classroom, or an individual could use non paid help, students may be available.  These non paid hours can range from helping with an activity/event, to helping a citizen in need. 
Please email with the type of work, hours available, location, contact person name and number or email, and any other pertinent information. Students will be required to make contact and setup their own work hours. When the hours are completed, the contact person simply needs to sign the provided paper with their name, hours works, and type of work completed.
