What is it?
We define community service as an activity that assists families, helps the homeless, supports the elderly and disabled and involves students in the community for which no pay or other tangible award is received. Community service is a part of Hoover City Schools’ commitment to character education.
Why do it?
Service projects foster character traits such as responsibility, perseverance, time management, initiative, self-reliance, and resourcefulness. Community service has become an asset to student’ resumes, whether for college admission, scholarship opportunities, or sorority/fraternity membership. Community service affords students the opportunity to be involved in their community and take pride in the knowledge that they have helped many people in many ways.
How to become involved?
Students MUST pick up the blue, Community Service Card located in the Guidance Office before the service hours will be counted. If the student completes Eighty (80) hours of documented service in a calendar year the Community Service Card MUST be turned in no later than May 1st. This will enable the student to earn a Community Service Certificate from Spain Park High School, which will be distributed at the end of the school year.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU MAKE A COPY FOR YOUR FILES, BEFORE YOU TURN IT INTO THE GUIDANCE OFFICE!
