2nd Semester Hours Due by May 30th







With stewardship as an important component of APES, each student is required to complete 12 hours of environmental community service. Six hours are due each 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 they signed up for 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/Ms. Parker) before the posted event start time. Many opportunities will be provided, with sign-up via signupgenius. If searching for your own opportunities, please DO NOT contact Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve or Lake Crabtree; they already provide us with all available opportunities. Students completing events not sponsored by Green Hope must fill out a service form and attach a photo. Community service activities that do not benefit the environment or an environmental organization, while commendable, do not count (ie. Habitat for Humanity, Landscaping & Beautification Efforts, Food Bank).
