On Friday, May 17th, students were expected to complete 100 hours of Community and Service (C&S) hours were due for BSGE Sophomores. It was the final deadline for C&S hours the students had been collecting since the 7th grade, and for BSGE transfers, the 9th grade. Peter Wilson’s office was in a fluster with students rushing in and out, standing in line, waiting in fear and anxiety to get their hours approved.
In total, 66 out of the total 72 students submitted their C&S hours on time which makes 91.6% of the grade. A few students’ deadlines were extended to this Friday, May 24th. According to Wilson, “realistically only two more students will complete the hours and are really close”. This makes around four students from the 10th grade who are unable to complete the MYP Program due to lack of C&S hours. Although completing the MYP Program does not effect entering the IB Program, it helps on college resumes and serves as preparation for completing the required 150 CAS (Community, Action, Service) hours for the IB in the 11th and 12th grades.
Note to Underclassmen: Complete your hours, and get them in ASAP!
