Community Service Request to Record Hours Form
Anyone who has taken the time to help others knows the good feeling one gets from volunteering is reward enough. The willingness to commit time and effort to assist others is a character trait 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 and Outstanding level of service for the year. Students who submit 100 or more hours in one 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 student who cumulatively recorded service hours within the top 10% of their graduating class. Membership in a MHS sponsored club or activity is not a prerequisite for community service recognition.

The 2018-2019 Request to Record Volunteer Hours form must be used to document service hours from May 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019. Students must submit the form to the appropriate grade-level advisor by the specified deadline. 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. This form can also be obtained from the MHS Main Office, MHS Guidance Office, or outside classrooms of Interact Club advisors. It is recommended students submit their hours as earned and contact their grade-level advisor 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 of 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.
