"Community Service Hours:
Each student will be required to complete 100 community service hours prior to graduating from Glenwood. Each student will be strongly encouraged to complete twenty-five (25) of the 100 hours during each school year (9-12). Of the 25 hours to be completed each year, 15 of the service hours must be completed from work opportunities outside of Glenwood School (60 hours total). The remaining 10 hours may be completed from work opportunities either inside or outside Glenwood. An approved list of community service work opportunities will be provided for each student. Community Service hours completed will be turned in to the Guidance Counselor who will record them on the Community Service form contained in each student’s file. Students entering Glenwood after their ninth grade year will have their hours pro-rated."
Community Service forms are available for download on this page (click on the link listed on right). Blank forms may also be picked up from the basket outside of the upper school guidance office.
