Each 8th Grade student must complete 15 hours of community service as a part of their graduation requirement. Fifteen hours is the minimum requirement by June. A special service award will be presented to the 8th grade student who performs the most community service hours. Eighth grade students are responsible for maintaining their own record of community service.
