The Basics
All Mesa high school students may choose to earn the Mesa Public Schools Honor for Excellence in
Service Learning.
Students must complete 150 hours of service during their four years of high school to qualify for the
Honor.
The 150 hours include getting started and trained, the service itself, and reflection.
All Option B applications for Summer 2013 should be submitted and approved no later than June
28, 2013.
Prior to May 23rd the summer service learning applications MUST be approved by your schools’ Service
Learning coach.
Option B: Extracurricular Service Learning
Students earn Option B hours by participating in service learning activities that are not part of any
academic class. In the summer, the activities may be sponsored by a community organization or
organized by one or more students with an original idea.
Some places students serve in the summer include hospitals, Mesa Parks and Rec, elementary schools
programs, summer camps, nursing homes, and animal shelters.
Students may NOT “baby-sit for free” or volunteer at a for-profit business, for relatives, or as part of
religious worship.

The Rules
Option B hours must be pre-approved by a Mesa schools “Service Learning Coach” BEFORE the
hours start to “count.”
It is best if an application is turned in to the student’s Service Learning Coach before school is out
for the summer. Paper copies have been available at the schools, or students may download an
application at www.mesaservicelearning.org/Honor.
If a student finds a good volunteer activity after May 23rd, it still must be pre-approved. Students
have three options:
1. E-mail the application as an attachment to Mr. Walsh at [email protected] He will mail the
timecard to the student.
2. Hand carry an application to one of the service learning coaches teaching summer school,
during June only, at these schools: Theresa Ratti – Mesa High School,
Denise Hakala – Smith Junior High
Rebecca Ross – Kino Junior High
3. Bring the application to the service learning office, 155 N. Center St., Mesa 85201 and receive a
timecard then.
If the service activities on the application are approved, the student will be given a timecard for each
volunteer site.
While the student is volunteering over the summer, she/he should complete one timecard per site.
The timecard will be due to the Service Learning Coach upon return to school in August.
Please note: A reflection will need to be completed prior to hours being recorded.
