Community Service PE Assignment
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed peoplecan change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has". - Margaret MeadMESSAGE FROM THE PE DEPARTMENT, APRIL 8, 2020
"With the ongoing Covid 19 crisis and the impact it is having on students being able to safely complete the previously assigned Community Service hours, the PE department is no longer making this a mandatory assignment. Students that previously completed these hours and submitted documentation will receive extra credit towards their PE grade. Students that did not complete the assigned hours and/or did not submit the documentation will not be penalized. With this in mind, it is still the PE department's hope that every student will continue to make a positive difference in their surrounding communities."
All verification forms + additional proof must be submitted through your PE teacher's Community Service Assignment in Schoology during the SPRING SEMESTER by the end of school on or before the due date: Friday, April 17, 2020
Late assignments will not be accepted. Remember, community service hours must be completed during the school year. We encourage all students to turn in the assignment early.
- Each student must complete at least 5 hours of community service for this project duringthe current school year.
- Print the verificationform to be completed by the supervising organization.
- A photo that clearly shows yourself at the event/activity is REQUIRED proof, even for Revere activities. Additional proof is acceptable but optional.
- Scans/photos (in focus and unaltered) of verification forms + proof must be submitted through your PE teacher’s Community Service Assignment in Schoology.
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.
