• Community Service Hours Graphic

     

     

    Community Service is a voluntary service for a school, community, or government agency for which one does not receive payment.  Services performed for a business or for profit are not acceptable.  Service hours do not include house sitting, baby sitting, pet sitting, helping neighbors complete chores, or grading student papers for teachers.  Service hours cannot be acquired during school instruction time.  If you have questions regarding what service qualifies, please call Ms Terry at 504-363-4300 or visit her in the office.  

     

    Students can begin to earn community service hours the summer preceding their 9th grade year.  While students in 6th - 8th grade can certainly perform community service, it does not count towards service hours earned.  The state recommends that students earn eighty community service hours during their high school years.  However, students can certainly earn more hours.  Signed verification by the agency for which the service was completed must be placed on an official Jefferson Parish Public School System Community Service Form and is available from Ms. Terry.  Community Service Forms must be turned in during the grade that the hours are earned.  That is to say, a Senior cannot turn in a form for hours earned when they were a Freshman.  The deadlines to turn in Community Service Forms are, as follows:

     All forms must be returned to Ms. Terry in the office by the due dates.  Reminders are announced during morning and afternoon announcements daily beginning approximately three weeks before the deadline.  As such, LATE FORMS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.  Please do not wait until the last minute to turn in your forms.
