Community Service

Community Service Options and Log
Community Service is recommended for students to complete throughout high school.  It is a way for students to gain experience, build relationships, and give back to their community.  We have provided a log in which students can keep track of their Community Service projects.  We have also provided a list of suggested organizations where students can volunteer.  Students should check the school bulletin and the Counseling Google Classrooms when specific community service opportunities arise.
