Volunteer Service Fair 2013
Thanks to all who participated!
SUMMER C&S/ CAS ASSIGNMENTS:
Rising 9th & 10th graders
may submit 10 hours of Community Service completed over the summer. These hours must be turned in by September 1, 2013. Remember that you are focusing on Community Service (giving back to the community and helping less fortunate). A total of 35 hours is required for 9th grade and 40 hours for 10th.
Rising 11th graders

Hello Class of 2014.docx
With long-term projects you still need to turn in a form each month, but you do not need to fill out a reflection form for each time you go! Keep a running reflection or journal in addition to a log sheet! Both the form and the log sheet need to be signed by the supervisor.
The reflection needs to be thorough and based on the 8 Learning Outcomes. (If you do 30 hours that month you should have more than one paragraph of reflection!)
Religious and Political activities, or "free labor" DO NOT COUNT!
You cannot pass out flyers for your church, work at a business for free, use internships, babysit for free, walk your neighbor's dogs or mow their lawns, etc. for community service.
, they are truly service! For example, mowing your neighbors lawn just to get hours doesn't count, but mowing your neighbor's lawn because they broke their leg or because they are elderly does count. Babysitting for free just to get hours doesn't count but babysitting for the parent who is working 3 jobs and needs help does count. Make sure you justify why your activity is service in your reflection forms.
9th and 10th grade:
Only 5 hours will be accepted for school or club sports & only 5 hours will be accepted for Creativity activities such as Science Olympiad or Speech and Debate.
Take forms to S-8. There is a drop box on the filing cabinet!

Amigos de la Biblioteca
is a tutoring program affiliated with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. Our mission is to provide tutoring aid for ESL (English as a Second Language) children. The program trains High school students to tutor elementary school children once or twice a week in a library setting. They help children with reading, writing, and general homework needs. Parents and children also have an opportunity to explore the library services and resources available.
ESL and Latino elementary school students have distinct disadvantages when it comes to doing their homework every night. Not only are they challenged with learning new materials, but they are also faced with a language barrier. Students with less developed English skills may not understand their homework-and that they cannot ask for assistance from their parents, who like their children, are learning English as a new language.
Why this is a win and win situation?
-Amigos de la Biblioteca offers high school students the opportunity to learn about a different culture, practice and /or learn Spanish, or any other language and receive community service hours for their hard work.
-ESL elementary students have the opportunity to excel in their homework, improve their reading, make a friend, practice English, and enjoy stories..

Angels in Need Exceptional Peers
What is "Exceptional Peers?''
Exceptional Peers is a program three months in duration. The goal is to help foster friendships between children with special needs in the Lake Norman area and exceptional "typical" peers. These "exceptional" peers can be any age... same age as your child... a little older... or even a high school student can be paired with a younger child. Angels in Need's sole role is to match the children with an "Exceptional Peer" and play dates then take place in the home or in the community, with parental supervision.
How does it work?
Volunteers and parents of exceptional children sign up for the program. We ask that all parties involved set aside about 4 hours per month in which to participate. Once a potential match is found, a meeting is held with the volunteer, the volunteer's parent, the parent of the exceptional child and an AiN representative; procedures and policies are reviewed; a potential schedule is determined; waivers are signed and then... let the playing begin!

Band Community Service Opportunity
Hey North Meck students! Do you need community service hours? Do you have experience on Flute, Clarinet, Trumpet, or Trombone? If so, I would love for you to join me, Mr. Robinson, at JMA during my 6th grade beginning band classes: Brass Methods and Woodwinds Methods. The classes start at 2:52 p.m. and end at 4:15 p.m. Brass meet on A Days and Woodwinds meet on B Days. That is 1 hour and 23 minutes of community service per class! We know our first 5 notes and are learning more each day. You would help with the following: helping instruct a small group of kids or do 1 on 1 help. These kids would love to see a real life high schooler come work with them!! If you are interested, please email me ASAP so I can set up which days you want to drop by.
• Brass Methods (ADay) 2:52-‐4:15pm at JMA (Trumpet of trombone players needed to help teach the basics)
