2ND SEMESTER COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS ARE DUE BY THURSDAY, JUNE 1ST






In order to develop a sense of stewardship within our AP Environmental Science students, each is required to complete 15 hours of environmental community service. Five hours are due at the end of the first (or third) quarter with ten additional hours due by the end of the semester. If students complete more than five hours in the first quarter, the additional hours will rollover to the second. Students will receive a grade of 100% each quarter for completion of hours. 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 finding a replacement or emailing Mr. Rush/Ms. Magee before the posted event start time. Many opportunities will be provided, with sign-up sheets generally being posted two weeks prior to the event on Thursday mornings via the website www.signupgenius.com. If searching for your own service opportunities, please DO NOT contact Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve, Lake Crabtree or Bond Park; 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 towards your service requirement (ie. Habitat for Humanity, Landscaping & Beautification Efforts, Food Bank)
