• The following activities count toward community service.  This list is a starting point when planning your service, but it's not everything that's possible.  There are thousands of ways to make an impact in our community.  If you're not sure whether your activity counts, see Mrs. Durshimer in Student Services during lunch or before or after school.  

    Remember, if you want it to count toward the Bright Futures scholarship, you have to fill out a pre-approval form before providing the service.
