WRHS Community Service
Community service refers to a service that a person performs for the benefit of his or her local community. The purpose of community service is to instill an awareness of the multiple needs of the community, a sense of moral obligation to help those less fortunate, and the desire to make the community a better place in which to live.
Remember that you represent your school when you are out in the community. Your actions are a reflection of you and your school.
Community Service Parameters
Community service must be free of personal gain or compensation, and/or repayment of debt. It is not work completed for family or relatives or something you are already obligated to do (i.e. drama performance, dance recital, etc.). Community service will be approved or denied on an individual basis. Please fill out the Community Service Pre-Approval Form prior to completing any Community Service hours.
A form must be submitted within two weeks of the service performed for each activity that is completed.
Types of Service
Please refer to the ‘Pre-Approved Community Service Organizations’ list. If you have a community service opportunity not on the list, students must first complete the ‘Pre-Approval Form for Community Service’ and obtain the necessary signatures..
All community service must follow the parameters outlined above.
