Spaulding High School's Community Service requirement challenges students to expand their definition of “community” to involve a larger portion of their world than just their school or their family. Additionally, it helps students realize that their contribution can make a difference, while also fostering a habit of service. Through Community Service, students also have the opportunity to pursue their interests, meet potential mentors, and develop skills and contacts that will help them well into the future. Students will be informed of both school and community related opportunities as the year progresses.
Forms SHOULD NOT be printed and do not require a signature. If a student has done the same activity over time they can submit ONE form with the multiple dates and total number of hours.
If you have questions about any activity, please reach out to Margo Austin prior to starting that activity at firstname.lastname@example.org
Community Service Overview
As of the 2023-24 school year, students are required to complete 40 hours of community service over their high school career. The exception is students who have transferred to Spaulding, then hours are prorated at 10 per school year.
We encourage students to work towards their Community Service requirements during the summer or over vacations and holidays. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD. The entire requirement could be completed in a condensed period of time or over multiple dates. For instance, students going on a service trip or volunteering for an organized event, like a cancer walk, might fulfill most of their hours during the same trip or event.
