Community Service Programs

Sheldon High School/International High School Community Service Program

Community Service is defined as student time and talent volunteered to their school and/or community. The student should not receive credit or money for the services to be considered as community service. The student does, however, receive special recognition in a variety of ways. The award column below lists the types of recognition.
