July 2022

You can begin serving your volunteer hours for the 2022-2023 academic year immediately. Please join the Leota NJHS Schoology group for the most up-to-date information about this club. The Schoology access code is: RT4Q-S3PM-649KN

Service hours can be completed any time before March 31, 2023. In general, your service needs to be performed at a non-profit organization, and needs to be for underserved and/or disadvantaged populations (to include hospitals, day care facilities, schools, after school clubs, homeless populations, eldercare, disabled individuals, animal rescue/care, environmental work, libraries, places of worship, veterans' services, and more). Examples of activities that will be considered a service DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC include, but are not limited to, housing a foreign exchange student, participating in performances (such as ballet/dance, music recitals, etc.), helping your neighbor clean their yard, taking tests, playing sports, and other like activities. Again, please NOTE: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, at home community service hours will be accepted this year. At home community service hours are those which are done for others, for which no compensation (monetary or otherwise) has been given.  These hours can and should be completed at home with proper social distancing and health guidelines. Students may volunteer within their own home and family unit outside of normal chores or responsibilities, and they do not need to volunteer with official organizations. When you serve your community service hours, please remember you are representing Leota Middle School -- dress appropriately and be on your best behavior. Thank you for choosing to participate in this valuable club.

Please refer to the Schoology group for meeting information or check the Leota daily slide deck (bulletin).
