Information regarding Community Service Activities

Students may consider virtual volunteering opportunities such as tutoring and connecting with seniors or outdoor activities such as shoveling snow, environmental cleanup, or planting trees in the spring. More activities can be found on the attached community service hour form. In addition, at Mrs. LoFaso's discretion, up to 10 hours of paid employment may count towards community service hours. A student must complete a reflection exercise demonstrating how their work contributed to their community. Please email your guidance counsellor for the reflection questions if you would like to pursue this option. Students may also earn volunteer hours by helping out with their sibling(s) which includes; walking them to school or helping them with school work. They may also help an elderly relative with errands.

Please be sure that the hours are totaled up and all required signatures are completed.
