Parent Service Hours
Can you believe how fast this school year has gone, we are half way through the year and March will be here in no time. That said, we have a few reminders about parent service hours:

1. Each family must have only one account in Track It Forward to ensure proper credit for all hours worked. If you currently have more than one account, you must contact Mrs. Amrhein to let her know which account you want to keep. She will combine your hours and delete the other account.

2. Make sure you are logging in your hours once you have completed them. Remember, no one is logging your hours in for you. Signing in at an event only shows that you were there. If you don't sign in at an event, we have no proof that you were there, and therefore would not approve your hours in Track it Forward. Make sure you sign in at an event AND log your hours in Track it Forward.

3. Remember that there are numerous opportunities to get your hours completed within the time frame that is allocated. Each year the dates for completing parent service hours are April 1 through March 31. Please do not wait until the last minute to start your hours; opportunities may be limited and you may come up short.

4. Parent service hours should be completed by parents or other adults only. Damien students or their non-adult siblings cannot earn volunteer hours.

5. If you have not paid for or completed your parent hours by March 31 you will be charged for the hours that are not completed. THERE ARE NO EXCETIONS!

If you have any questions please do not wait until it is to late contact Mrs. Amrhein now, amrhein@damien-hs.edu.
