Community Service

Community Service 2019-2020

The Community Service Program is a crucial component of the Charles A. Mulligan Elementary School curriculum. The goal of the program is to teach responsible citizenship and encourage students to look beyond their immediate world. Students have many opportunities to complete community service throughout the school year and even some through school activities. A record of service must be maintained for each student. It is the student’s responsibility to have the verification form filled out.  Every month during class, students will be allowed to complete their community service log.

Service is defined as work done for a non-profit agency or individual, and one in which there is no compensation or reward for the individual completing the work. The activity should contribute to the wellbeing of the school or community.

For the purposes of this program, participating in a club or school-sponsored activity will count towards community service hours.  However, this may not be the case when a student moves on to high school, college and beyond.  At the elementary school level, we simply want our students to get involved!

Examples of School Service Include:

  • Cleaning up the campus

  • Collection of recyclable items in the classroom or cafeteria

  • Before or after school secretarial help or classroom assistance for school staff

  • Participating in a school school-sponsored community service opportunity
