Incoming freshmen may begin accumulating community service hours during the summer months prior to their freshmen year at EMHS. Community service hours do carry over from year to year.
The intent of the community service requirement is to encourage EMHS students to volunteer for a variety of community organizations and causes so that they eventually are positioned to take on leadership roles at these organizations as a part of their senior service projects.
For more information on logging community service hours or finding a great community organization that needs a volunteer, please contact Bird Podzemny, Student Advisor, at email@example.com. Also, please check out local volunteer opportunities posted online at NMVolunteer.org or VolunteerMatch.org.
In Our Student’s Words
There are many things that make East Mountain High School unique, the major one being that it is a charter school focusing on college readiness and working with each student one on one. Another unique thing about the school is the community service that students participate in.Student, Class of 2017
