Community Service Hours
Did you know, students must complete 40 hours of community involvement in order to graduate. Students are eligible to begin completing these hours as soon as they officially graduate grade 8! Consider using the summer before Grade 9 starts to find ways to volunteer in our community. We have lots of community events and organizations that could use your help!

Our Student Success Team works with students, parents and teachers to ensure that a plan is put in place for each student to work toward achieving their credits. Student success strategies may include extra help sessions, alternative workspace, or credit rescue initiatives. Students may be approached by members of this team during the course of the school year as an extra support. Many of the student success strategies are available to all students, listen to announcements for these opportunities.
