Clyde Savannah Recognizes  National Volunteer Week 

Volunteering can provide a healthy boost to your self-confidence, self-esteem, and life satisfaction. One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Even helping with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people, animals, and organizations in need.  Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills. 

 The Clyde-Savannah students are required to complete community/service -learning hours for graduation. Students may earn these hours through opportunities that they set up on their own, or that they can find at our school.  Students are encouraged to see their school counselor for information regarding Community Service projects and opportunities.  

 Grade 7         5 community service hours 

 Grade 8         5 community service hours 

 Grade  9       10 community service hours
