We appreciate all that you do! As a non-profit, family-run school, your time is required to make our school community work. During the 2009-2010 school year, the board implemented a service hour requirement (i.e., time spent contributing to the improvement of the school) to ensure that all of the MSGL families participate in school operations. Each family must complete at least 20 service hours during a one school-year period (June 1, 2017 - April 30, 2018). This requirement is per family, not per child enrolled. Unfortunately, service hour participation is not at the level that we need to get everything done around the school and therefore, the board is offering a buy-out option as a way to defer some of the costs that incur for general maintenance and site improvements. Families have two ways to complete their required service time; volunteering around the school or buying out the time.
Service hours are easy to fulfill and by completing a Service Hour Sign-Up form, we can match you with the activities of your choice! Also, if two family members (including children) attend clean up days, you can count each individual’s hours! To log your completed service hours, simply complete the form below.
If you feel you cannot attain your hours in the upcoming school year, we are providing you an option to buy up to 19 of your service hours at $20 per hour. Snack rotation is still required, so you cannot “buy” that service hour. If your family has not met the service hour requirement by April 30, 2018, you will be charged $20 per remaining hour. This charge will be final on your May statement.
