3. Log sheets can be found in Mrs. Fletcher’s room, Guidance Office, or at on the Student’s Page.

4. Submitting the log sheet to the Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism does not mean that the hours indicated on it will automatically be applied to the Graduation Cord of Excellence Program. All volunteer hours are subject to verification; signatures and phone number is required for vertification. Please note: Court-ordered service does not count toward volunteer service hours.

5. If service hours indicated on this sheet are with or for an organization not sponsored by the school, they must be verified by the sponsoring agency and the school coordinator (Christi Fletcher).
