Community Service  







Menomonie High School Community Service Program

It is the goal of MHS that all students graduate having contributed at least 75 hours of volunteer service to their community. Volunteering is fundamentally important to our area philanthropic organizations, they simply could not continue on without the effort and time given by our amazing high school students. All students who record at least 75 ­hours of community service are given a special recognition at the graduation ceremony.

In addition to that recognition, we have found that documented community service hours (especially those beyond 75-hours) are often used as a deciding factor in college admittance and the granting of scholarships. While this program is entirely optional, it is highly encouraged that all students work to achieve a minimum of 75­ hours of documented community service.

Community service documentation forms can be picked up (and returned) to Mr. Davis (MHS Room 230).

Hours are posted outside of Room 244 (Social Studies Area) in the large glass display case (at this time, we do not have the functionality to post hours in Skyward PLEASE email Mr. Davis for the most up-to-date hour total).
