Peacock Middle > Community Service

COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS

Peacock’s philosophy on community service is to promote a sense of pride in our community and treat it as a “pay it forward” service rather than a punishment.  The Village of Itasca is responsible for so many positive benefits in our school district and giving back to the community that gives so much to our students is essential in maintaining a village of productive citizens contributing to the betterment of Itasca.  All students at each of Peacock’s grade levels will be required to complete a minimum of six (6) community service hours each of the years they are students at the school.  Service hours that exceed the minimum of six (6) for any given year may not be transferred to a following year.  A minimum total of eighteen (18) service hours is required to participate in the graduation ceremony and its related functions if a student has been enrolled at Peacock for all three years.

The 18 hours will be prorated for students entering Peacock during their 7th or 8th grade years.  Students in 6th and 7th grade who are deficient in their service hours at the end of their school year will not be able to participate in any extra-curricular activity (sports, clubs, dances, musical plays, etc.) beginning with the next school year until all service hour deficiencies have been satisfied. This restriction will also include the participation in program tryouts.

Students in 8th grade deficient in service hours will have the same consequences applied as 6th and 7th graders in addition to being ineligible to participate in any graduation function including the graduation ceremony. Documentation of participation and completion of service hours will be monitored each year on a regular basis by a student’s advisor. 

A school certification form is available for this documentation process and may be obtained from a 1st period teacher, the main office, or school website.  Community Service hours will be placed on a student’s report card to inform both student and parent the number of hours earned for the current school year.  For more information on service opportunities, please reference the Community Service handout your child received the first week of school, which can also be found on our website and in the Student Notebook.
