SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES for NEW INDUCTEES:
You may earn hours of community service by helping teachers or other faculty members. Email teachers to find out what you can do to help them and when they need you to be there.
Helping teachers at other schools is great, too! Do you know a counselor or principal? Band director? Music director? Principal or Assistant Principal? Custodial staff member? You might be surprised at what they will find for you to do to help your school.
Take your service log when you find a job to do. Please remember that your community service does not happen during your school hours.
Box Tops Brigade
NJHS members may earn one service hour for every four completed sheets of unexpired Box Tops for Education (25 coupons per sheet = 100 coupons). Clip and collect your own, and/or see Mr. Thomas in C112 for uncut/unchecked Box Tops. For more information about Box Tops for Education, please visit btfe.com

Community Service is voluntary work that is usually performed for a nonprofit organization and is intended to be performed for the benefit of members of the community.
A record of the service should include a brief description of the service performed, date, time served, and the signature of an adult to verify the recorded service. Letters from participating organizations often are provided and may be attached to the NJHS member's Service Log Sheet.
Check meeting agendas for upcoming SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES. Members are expected to participate in at least FIVE chapter SERVICE activities during the year. Members are also expected to record at least 10 HOURS of Community Service.
Please ask Mrs. Hayward.
