Mills E. Godwin High School Community Service Coordinator
Week of November 27 - Dec. 5
            Community Service for the 2021- 2022 School
Community Service in high school is purely voluntary. It is not tied to graduation or the type of diploma you receive, but you may earn a CSL seal for your diploma. Due to the health crisis we have experienced all classes from 2022 - 2025 will only need 50 hours to receive the seal. Social Studies teachers have a record of the hours in the resource folder in Schoology. This is updated once a month. The steps for completing service are listed below. If you have any questions - please let Mrs. Bryant know. 
<>Submissions may be made at: https://forms.gle/yg3oHMEZsesk93ic7. You must be on your Henrico county account to submit. If you wish to drop-off a paper copy do so in the folder outside of room 55 on the bulletin board.
Teachers' RESOURCE FOLDERS will have spreadsheets that I shall update once a month with hours accumulated..
