Canterbury has a long standing commitment to community service. This year, we are participating in the National Association of Independent Schools One Million Hours of Service Program, which challenges independent schools all across the country to reach a collective one million hours of service. To do our part, we will track service hours and report them to NAIS. One hour of service is equal to one person doing one hour of service. If ten people are doing one hour of service, it equals ten hours of service. This program is open to our students, our parents, our alumni, and our staff. You may log any hours between September 2011 to March 2012. Whole-school service projects will be reported by the event organizers, so if you participated in the mini Crop Walk, the Tour to Tanglewood, or the MS Walk for the Cure, you do not need to submit your hours.
