APES 4th Quarter Community Service Hours Due Thursday, June 2nd


Opportunities marked with ** are not GH sponsored. A form & picture must be submitted for credit.







Environmental Community Service is an important part of AP Environmental Science classes and Environmental Club. While there is no service hours requirement for Environmental Club members, each student in APES is required to complete six hours of service per quarter. If students complete more than six hours in the first quarter, the additional hours will rollover to the second. If a student fails to show up for an event or removes their name from signup genius within 24 hours of the event, five points will be deducted from their grade. This deduction may be avoided by emailing Mr. Rush (or Ms. Magee) before the posted event start time. Students completing events on their own must fill out a service form and attach a photo. No form or picture is need when completing hours signed up for through signup genius. Community service activities that do not benefit the environment or an environmental organization, while commendable, will not be credited (ie. Habitat for Humanity, Landscaping & Beautification Efforts, Food Bank).
