Did you know you can earn service learning hours over the summer? Please review the information below, or follow the appropriate links on the MPS District Web Page. The district office will be handling all summer applications, so please contact the district office with any questions or concerns. 

New 7th graders, and Current 7th graders going into 8th grade may earn service hours for pre-approved activities to count toward the 50 hours needed to earn the Silver Service Award. 

Click the following link to complete the Summer Service-Learning Application for Junior High Students. (You must be logged in to your MPS account to continue.) Once you have submitted the form, your application will be reviewed. If approved, you will receive an email with your time card. You will need to print your time card and get it signed as you complete the service. You will need a new application and time card for each organization that you serve. You will need 50 hours by the end of your 8th grade year in order to qualify for the Silver Service award. You must complete a reflection project at the end of each school year in order for the hours to be recorded. More details will be emailed to Service-Learning participants in April. 6th graders going into 7th grade may start earning hours the first day of summer, starting May 24th, 2019. (Use the link above).

Current 8th Graders going into 9th grade may start earning service hours for high school starting May 24th- as soon as you are officially promoted to 9th grade! These hours will count toward the 200 hours need to earn the Gold Seal for Service Learning. This looks great on college applications and there are even scholarships available just for students involved in service learning! Click the following link to complete the MPS Service-Learning Application for Senior High Students.
