STUDENT ACADEMIC ASSISTANCE:

Weekly Progress Report Form
This form is helpful for parents to get periodic feedback from teachers regarding their child's progress. It can be used weekly, bi-weekly or as often as needed. It can be used for one class, two classes, or as many as necessary. The student should bring the form to his or her teacher, then return the completed form to his or her parents.

Anyone who has taken the time to help others knows that the good feeling one gets from volunteering is reward enough. The willingness to commit time and effort to assist others is a character trait that is valued by colleges and employers. To recognize student efforts, Moorestown High School students can earn designation on their transcripts for service to the community. Transcript recognition begins at 40 hours per service year and increases in the following increments: 40+ hours, 60+ hours, 80+ hours, 100+ hours, 200+ hours, 300+ hours, and 400+ hours.

In addition to transcript designation, students who successfully record between 50 and 99 hours of community service in one service year will be awarded a certificate denoting an Outstanding level of service for the year. Students who submit 100 or more hours in one service year will be awarded a certificate denoting an Exceptional level of service for the year. In addition to internal recognition, the President’s Volunteer Service Award is presented to students that record over 100 community service hours in a service year. Each year, the MHS Community Service Council will honor the students who have cumulatively recorded service hours within the top 10% of their graduating class. Membership in an MHS-sponsored club or activity is not a prerequisite for community service recognition.

The 2017-2018 Request to Record Volunteer Hours form must be used to document service hours from May 1, 2017 through April 30, 2018. Students must submit the Request to Record Volunteer Hours forms to the appropriate grade-level adviser by the specified deadlines. The form must be signed by the supervisor overseeing the service work or project; a signed letter (on the letterhead of the sponsoring organization or agency) attached to the form is acceptable. The Request to Record Volunteer Hours form can be obtained above, from the MHS Main Office, or outside of the classrooms of the Interact Club advisers. It is recommended that students submit their hours as earned and contact their grade-level adviser to confirm their recorded service hours on a periodic basis.

Students will be able to record a maximum of 10 community service hours per service year for in-kind donations. In-kind donations include donations that are made to charitable organizations such as non-perishable food items, clothing, books, and school supplies. Students will be awarded 1 hour of service for every 4 items donated.   

GRADUATING SENIORS:

2016 Senior Sign-Off Form 
The Senior Graduation Sign-Off form requests the MHS Guidance Office to send the student's Final Transcript be sent to the college they will be attending. It requests the students's Final Transcript be sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center (if applicable and if the appropriate spot is checked off). The form also collects information on the student's post-secondary plans, and allows them to agree to be included in the Student Tracker for High Schools program through the National Student Clearinghouse.
