VARSITY LETTER IN COMMUNITY SERVICE

VARSITY LETTER IN COMMUNITY SERVICE PROGRAM 2019 - 2020

* Updated for School Closure:  Completed hours are reduced from 140 to 100 to earn the Varsity Letter in Community Service

Engaging in community service is a way to uplift others, the community, and oneself.  The impact on the lives of others and the community at large can be lasting.  It is also a great way to enrich your skills at relationship-building, empathy, problem-solving, and leadership.  Peninsula School District is proud to honor students who contribute to our community with the Varsity Letter in Community Service.  This opportunity is available to students in 9th through 12th grade and can be repeated through each year of high school.
