If not completed by August of the senior year, a senior will have to complete community service hours at the beginning of the senior year. During the completion of the 75 hour requirement a senior will not be eligible for any senior privileges. Seniors will volunteer throughout the senior year in support of the completion of the senior project. Participation parameters for the Senior Project will be determined by the Senior Class Officers and coordinated by the Senior Project Sponsor.”
