ANNOUNCEMENTS

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.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

NJHS members may earn and record community service hours during the summer and throughout the school year. A minimum of 10 hours are due in April 2019.

In addition to service hours, members are required to log at least 5 "activity credits" during the 2018-2019 academic year.

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.

Activity Credits are earned throughout the year when we work together as a chapter to accomplish a service goal. Members are required to sign-in when they arrive to a scheduled activity. This signature will help verify the activity that was recorded on the Service Log Sheet. Members must have Log Sheets signed by the adviser or another adult who can verify participation.

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.
