Dear Parents,Our students have the time, energy and talent to make a difference in our "Great Society". Through their participation in helping others, they learn the meaning of involvement and commitment to our community. They will also develop a personal belief in self awareness and character. At the Sara M. Gilmore Academy, we believe in the strength of all individuals, who will be the future leaders of our nation. In order to foster a culture of service, citizenship and responsibility, all students will be required to perform service to our school or community during the school year. All community service must be completed by June 1 of each school year.
I hope that you will join forces with your child and become participants in life's "Great Challenges". Yours in Education, Geri Perez PrincipalI have recognized the importance of community involvement for my child. I will support his / her efforts in this service.Student's Name: __________________________________________________________________Signature of Parent / Guardian: ______________________________________________________Homeroom #: ________ Grade: ________ Homeroom Teacher: ________________________
