"The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others."
STUDENTS CAN NOW CHECK THEIR COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS ANYTIME AT:
STEM Students are required to complete a total of 128 hours of community service before May of their senior year. While there are some specific rules about what counts and what does not, the guiding principle should be that the activity in which you are engaged benefits the community at large in some meaningful way and fulfills a genuine need. Students may not receive payment or compensation in any form for services performed, and no more than 8 hours per day may be counted toward meeting the STEM service requirement.
Any questions concerning the appropriateness of service activities should be directed to Mr. Persails. Issues regarding special circumstances should be dealt with before the service is performed.
