   As a part of your senior project, you will be required to complete five hours of
    community service. You must get approval from Mrs. Vanasco or Mrs. Heasley
    BEFORE you complete community service. If you do not do this, then you run
    the risk of not getting credit for this part of your project!

   This is something that is done on your own time. However, members of
    L.E.A.P.S., Peer Leadership, and Youth Alive will have opportunities to complete
    community service through the school.

   Some examples of community service include: volunteering at your local fire
    department, volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, volunteering at a homeless
    shelter or a Humane Society, and participating in any type of food drive or
    donation drive. Any NON-profit organization will count as community service.

   The attached form must be completed in order for you to get credit. The form
    will be considered incomplete if ALL of the information is not included.

   The community service project must be completed and turned in by Friday, May
    1, 2009. All students with last names starting with A through K must turn in their
    papers to Mrs. Vanasco and all students with last names starting with L through Z
    must turn their papers in to Mrs. Heasley. If you have Mrs. Gettings for an
    English teacher, you must turn your papers in to her.

   You may split up the hours if you wish. For example, if you want to do 2.5 hours
    at one charity and 2.5 hours at another charity, then you may. You will only have
    to write out one reflection sheet, but you will need to mention all organizations
    where you may have done your volunteer work.

   If you split your hours, you must make copies of the attached sign off sheet. You
    WILL need to turn in a sign-off sheet for each service you perform.

   If you miss a day of school to complete this, you must bring your sign-off sheet in
    to Mrs. Mangino so that she can make a copy of it. She will return it to you so that
    you may turn it in to Mrs. Vanasco or Mrs. Heasley. If you do this, the day will be
    excused. If you do not do this, it will count as an unexcused absence.
