Community Service Program

WHAT is the EHS Community Service Program?

Eastlake High School values community service and thus awards students for their contributions through its Community Service Program, supported by EHS and the EHS PTSA.  Beginning in summer before entering 9th grade, students can submit, track, verify and be recognized for all community service hours across all EHS clubs/activities as well as individual service in the community. 

What is the significance of the Community Service Honor Cord?
Silver Honor cord

Seniors can receive a community service award and honor cord for completing at least 200 service hours during their time at Eastlake. The silver Community Service Graduation Honor Cord demonstrates that the student made community service a priority during their high school career.

A list of award winners is published on the EHS Community Service Program page in the spring before graduation.

Note that some clubs have their own service requirements, but all service hours count towards the EHS Community Service Program.
