The commitment to social justice and service learning is an integral part of the Elms philosophy and mission and is infused throughout the curriculum. We seek to practice service learning in the way we treat one another in our school community as well as in the way we interact with our community at large. Our Campus Ministry team regularly organizes and advertises community service opportunities that are open to all students.
Upper School students must complete a number of service hours by the end of the second quarter:
Grades 9 & 10 = 10 hours (20 points)
Grades 11 & 12 = 15 hours (30 points)
By May 1, Upper School students must complete the remaining hours for the following totals:
Grades 9 & 10 – remaining 15 hours for a total of 25 hours (30 points)
Grades 11 & 12 –remaining 20 hours for a total of 35 hours. (40 points) 10 of these hours must be done at an agency that provides “hands on” service with the poor or needy.
