VARSITY LETTER IN COMMUNITY SERVICE

Since 2017, Peninsula School District has honored high school students who volunteer their time and talents to uplift others in our community and region.  In the 2019-2020 school year, we had 32 remarkable students who have earned the Varsity Letter in Community Service.  These students have dedicated over 5,200 hours of service to organizations, including Food Backpack for Kids, St. Anthony’s Hospital, PenMet Parks, Peninsula Youth Wrestling, and Stand Up for Peninsula Schools.  These students completed at least 100 hours (reduced from 145 hours, due to COVID-19 closures) of community service and maintained a 2.0 GPA.  Recognition packets were mailed out on June 17, 2020 and the recognition video can be viewed on Vimeo.
