Summer Service Hours!!!

Remember, you can count up to 5 hours from your summer volunteer work towards your required 15.  Please download the new 2018-19 Service Hour Sheet to begin!

 

Students received a newsletter August 30-31, 2018, which explained several things about the year, and thier current standing with the club.  If they were being put on probation, they received a separate letter explaining why they are on probation, and how to rectify the situation.  If you would like to view a generic copy of these letters, please follow the "FILE" link to the letter you'd like to see.

FAQ's:

 

What are service hours?

As a Beta Club member who tries to "lead by serving others," students are required to complete service hours.  A student must document and turn in fifteen (15) points by May 17th, 2019, to be considered an active member.

How do I get service hours?

By participating in service projects or completing service hours inside school and in the community. 

How do I document service hours?

To receive credit, a student must complete the Service Hours Form, which can be downloaded here or found outside room 108.  Hours must be for an uncompensated activity, and cannot be used for another organization (i.e. National Honor Society or Service Learning).
