Community service must be volunteer type work for a reputable non‐profit organization (NOT a business or individual) and beneficial to the community. It can be done in one day, or spread through many. Select an activity that you are interested in, and get involved. If you are not sure if a certain activity counts for community service, or you are having difficulty finding something, let your PE teacher know early! Examples of accepted and non‐accepted community service are:
Verification of Hours & Grade
Verification of Hours: Make sure to get the verification form filled out and signed by the non-profit organization's adult supervisor of the activity (NOT a parent/family member/friend). Upload and submit the form + proof through your PE teacher's Community Service Assignment in Schoology.
Grade: Students who do not complete the required hours will see their PE grade drop one whole letter grade (ex: from an A to B) and will receive a "U" in work habits on the 20-week report card.
