2017-2018 Service Projects
Members are required to complete 5 service points per semester - at least 3 from two different school sponsored projects. Points can also be rewarded for individual projects when you perform a service for someone outside your family for which you are not paid. An ISP (Individual Service Project) form for turning in outside points is linked above. The form can also be picked up in Ms. Chancey’s room. These completed forms are to be dropped in the ISP box in Ms. Chancey’s room. Members are strongly encouraged to keep a record of all earned service points throughout the semester on the Member Service Point Record form linked above. This form is required to reconcile with chapter records in case of any discrepancies.
You will have several opportunities to earn service points at school. School points will be weighted more that outside service points for awards. High service point winners will be recognized at the new member induction in the spring. Current school service opportunities are listed below and other opportunities will be added as they become available. For current, detailed information about each ongoing project, see Announcements. Any member that commits to a school service project but does not follow through with the commitment will be placed on probation unless prior notification of the absence is made or in case of emergency.
If a member does not meet the 5 point requirement during the first semester, they will be placed on probation for the second semester and expected to make up the missing points, as well as earn the additional points required for the second semester. Failure to do so will result in dismissal from NJHS. All service points for the year are due by May 15th. Because of year end, members cannot be placed on probation, and will be dismissed.
