Community Service


Service projects are required for each student, first grade and up.  The number required per school year depends on the student's grade level.  For example, first graders are required to complete one service project, and second graders are required to complete  two service projects.  This pattern continues with each subsequent grade level.  These projects can range from simple to complex.  Examples include: Volunteering at a soup kitchen, community cleanup projects, assisting at a nursing home or helping a family at Christmas.

Community service projects must be pre-approved by CCS administration using the Community Service Report (see below).  A brief but accurate description of the proposed service project should be written on the form and then submitted to CCS administration.  The form will be promptly returned to the student.  If approved, the student is free to complete the service project.  After finishing the project, the form should be completed and returned to CCS administration.  Each service project should involve the student for a minimum of one (1) hour of actual service.  The goal of this requirement is to encourage hands-on service in our students; therefore, student initiated collection boxes which request donations from fellow students are not permitted.
