As a reminder, Community Service Hours must be completed and turned in to your counselor with a completed written reflection by Monday, May 1, 2017!!! May 1st is around the corner, less than 2 weeks away, so please complete and turn in hours ASAP!
As stated in a recent email sent out to SCHS Seniors, in order to graduate and to attend Senior Prom, you must fulfill your community service requirement for the Santa Clara Unified School District, completing at least 20 hours of community service. To receive credit for these hours, you must turn in a “Confirmation of Hours Form” and a written Reflection for each site you complete hours. Signed and completed hours forms are due to your counselor by Monday, May 1, 2017!!. Forms are located in the lobby of the Counseling Office.
If you have already completed your community service hours but have not yet completed the written reflection, as outlined on the Community Service Confirmation of Hours form, please do so ASAP and turn in to your counselor!! If you have not yet completed any community service hours, please plan to do so as soon as possible, as you risk not being able to attend Senior Prom as well as not being able to graduate!!
If you have questions, please see your counselor.
