SERVICE LEARNING (Community Service) Information

SERVICE LEARNING through community outreach is an integral part of our CHAMPS philosophy and students have requirements to meet annually. Participation in the SERVICE LEARNING program is mandatory for all CHAMPS students.  A list of approved SERVICE LEARNING opportunities is listed on this site.  If a student wants to work on a project that is not already on this list, they must submit a request form before they can be credited with any service hours.  An authorized supervisor must verify all volunteer work. 
There is a minimum community service obligation for each student of 25 hours per year attending CHAMPS.  Hours may be earned during the summer.
Students who have not completed their required SERVICE LEARNING obligation through student community service  or have failed to turn in completion forms will not be able to participate in graduation activities nor receive their diploma this obligation is fulfilled.
The SERVICE LEARNING committee is pleased to announce that the forms needed are currently downloadable from the link below. 
Juniors who would like to leave campus during lunch must have a minimum of 50 hours logged into Q and have a signed permission slip from their parent/guardian to receive an off campus permission sticker.
Seniors - Seventy-five percent of the student's Service Learning must be completed the first day of the second semester or they may forfeit their opportunity to particpate in Senior activities.
