Mesa Academy Service Learning
Silver Service Learning Award
About Service Learning
Service Learning is available to 7th and 8th grade students, starting after the last day of 6th grade. The goal of students taking part in Service Learning is to earn at least 50 service hours by the end of 8th grade. This will earn them recognition and a Silver Service Award Certificate. Students can participate in activities to count towards their Service Learning hours through Option A and Option B. **Note: Service Learning is NOT NJHS. However, if a student filled out an application, they could count their NJHS hours toward their Service Learning hours.
Reflection Presentation Sign Up can begin as early as April 6, 2020.
Completed Timecards are due to Mrs. Chiren in Room 20 no later than May 8, 2020.
Option B For Students and Parents
Option B covers is any activity that is initiated by the student for service on the school campus or in the community.
This service must be PRE-APPROVED, be separate from religious worship, and not be supervised by a family member. Students must complete a Reflection Project and Presentation at the end of the year for their hours to be counted.
For more information, please visit Mesa Public School's Service Learning Website. Make sure you focus on the Silver Service Award. The Honor/Gold Program is for High School Students.
