Grades 6-8 = 2.5 hours instead of 5; NJHS is an additional 5 hours instead of 10; Grades 9-12 = 4 hours instead of 8; NHS is an additional 7.5 hours instead of 15. Please visit the Counselor’s Corner for some links for service opportunities. Grant-In-Aid recipients are on pause until Semester 2. There may be sporadic opportunities that arise and if so contact will be made.
