If you do service for a teacher or are in involved in a service-related club, your service hour logs are now due for submission. These must be submitted to your service sponsor teacher before Friday, May 14. Please verify your hours with your sponsor teacher and they will submit your service hours to the awards committee for consideration of service certificates and award pins. Please note: students can not submit service hours directly to the awards committee. This must be done through a teacher. Also, you are reminded to continue keeping track of your service hours for the May to June period and to submit logs again the final week of classes in June. N. Petheriotis
