Can classes combine to do the same service project (for example, both of the 4th grade classes decide to team up and pick up trash at a local park)?
Yes. It is up to each class to decide which service project they want to do. If they want to do their own service project, they can do so. If they want to team up with another class, they can also do so.
Do the service projects need to start at the beginning of the school day?
No. They can start and end at any time during the school day, based on what service project has been chosen and how long it takes to accomplish.
Can it be longer than the school day (i.e., before school starts and/or after school ends)?
No, it cannot.
Where do the students (and adults coming) meet on the day of the North Hills Service Project Day?
It depends on the service project. It may be best to meet at North Hills or it might be best to meet at the service project location. The teacher of each class will provide these details.
When a class finishes its service project, what do they do?
For K-12 students, they go home. The school day lasts as long as the service project does. For preschool students, it is a regular school day.
What does everyone do for lunch?
It is up to each class. If any cost is involved, it will be communicated by the teacher.
Who will provide water for a long service project?
It is up to each class. They can 1) request funding for water bottles, 2) raise their own funds for water bottles, or 3) bring their own water bottles from home.
What if someone gets hurt during the service project?
Each class is to bring a first aid kit with them.
Is it required that a student has a family member/guardian be with them at the North Hills Service Project Day?
For K-12 students, yes. There are three primary reasons for this:
1) Family members/guardians will be central in transporting students on the big day
2) Family members/guardians will help support their child’s teacher
3) Family members/guardians will be actively participating in the service project alongside their child
For Preschool students, it depends on the service project being done. All family members/guardians are welcome to come. If it is required, it will be communicated by the teacher.
What is the minimum age a family member/guardian must be?
The person must be at least 25 years old.
What if any students misbehave during the service project?
Family members/guardians are to support the teacher in addressing any behavioral issues.
What if the family member/guardian has two or more students?
It will be up to the family member/guardian to choose which student he/she wants to go with.
Will parents/guardians get Family Service Hours?
Yes. They will need to fill out the form and have it signed.
What if I have questions that are not addressed above?
Please contact your student’s teacher. For middle/high school students, it is their 6th period teacher.
