  • Documenting Community Service Hours
    Students will need to keep track of their community service hours during the school year. In April, we will send a notification that a google doc has been created to document the hours. Parents can sign off, or any other adult that was supervising the service hours. This document will not be available until April for documentation purposes, so please have students keep track on a separate piece of paper. If you have questions please contact the counselors.

    8th Grade Beth Weishaar 359-5888
