- The MLWGS Community Service form (found under the "FORMS" tab) is required to verify hours. In lieu of this form, students may also submit a letter from the organization on agency letterhead or form letter with appropriate signature, current daytime telephone number of the supervisor, and the total number hours of work. PLEASE NOTE that, if you are using an organization form, you must still complete the reflection piece.
- Forms are to be delivered to the baskets located in the Blue Stone Lobby. In other words, digitally-sent forms are not acceptable.
- All forms must be signed by an authorized representative of the organization. STUDENTS MAY NOT SIGN COMMUNITY SERVICE FORMS FOR OTHER STUDENTS.
- All community service hours worked during a particular nine-week grading period need to be turned in before the end of each grading period to obtain credit (due dates are listed under the "Forms" tab). Community service hours are shown on report cards to help track student progress.
- All summer hours must be submitted to the Community Service Coordinator no later than two weeks after the first day of school (the exact date will be posted under the "Forms" tab). Community service hours logged in the summer prior to the freshman year will be accepted if the hours meet accepted criteria. It is wise to use the summer to get ahead, not catch-up.
- Students not completing a minimum of 35 hours per year will be counseled, and quarterly reports will be sent back to their respective home division for review. Students will be required to meet with the school's Administration and complete a plan of action form (see FORMS tab).
- Rising seniors should have at least 105 hours at the start of their senior year. NOTE: If you plan on taking a mentorship during your senior year, community service hours must be in line with the stated requirements.
- Students are encouraged to check with various honor societies for the minimum number of community service hours that must be completed as a part of the requirements for membership. Community service hours performed as a requirement for an honor society or club do not count toward the 140 hour requirement. In other words, no double dipping.
- Students are encouraged to keep copies of all documentation of community service hours in case a form should become lost.
