Week of March 27
Seniors: All of your service must be submitted by May 5 so that seals can be ordered.
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. The Classes from 2023 - 2025 will only need 50 hours to receive the seal. The Class of 2026 will return to the requirement of 80 hours of services. Social Studies teachers now have a record of the hours in the resource folder in Schoology that is updated once a month. If there are questions, please see Mrs. Bryant - room 55.
<>Submissions may be made at: https://forms.gle/yg3oHMEZsesk93ic7 - Linked below. 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.
The Community Service form for 2022-2023 is under "Useful Links" but I will also have paper copies available outside of room 55. Also, you will find a new Parental Letter for all students to complete before beginning service. This letter is only filled out once - it covers all 4 years.
If you create your own log sheet be sure that you have the following:
Name and Contact information for the Supervisor
Service organization and the type of service rendered: ex. serving meals to the homeless
If you have a social studies teacher - they will have an updated spreadsheet of hours that have been logged. If you don't have a social studies teacher - check with Mrs. Bryant in room 55 for updates. This list has been updated for late August - early September. Another list will be published at the end of this month.
