Community Involvement

Now is the time to consider what Community Involvement opportunities are available to you over the summer.  Once you have completed grade 8, you may begin to accumulate your 40 hours of community involvement.  This is a graduation requirement.  The summer immediately following grade 8 is a great opportunity to get this graduation requirement completed.  For more information about the community involvement graduation requirement go to Community Involvement at the DDSB website.
