Varsity Letter for Volunteer Service
Varsity Letter in Volunteer Service Awards
Posted on 06/09/2021

Congratulations to 82 students who have earned a Varsity Letter in Volunteer Servicefor the month of June. In total, 150 students in grades 7-12 have earned a varsity letter in community service for the 2020-21 school year.  

This year marks the 5th year of students being able to earn a varsity letter in community service. What began in the 2016-17 school year, has now turned into tradition here in Puyallup. Our students and schools recognize the importance of giving back and modeling a ‘service above self’ life. Two times a year we honor students who have earned a varsity letter in volunteer service. 
Students in grades 7 through 12 are eligible for this program and they must complete at least 150 hours of community service. This year that requirement was been adjusted to 75 hours. Students are then required to document volunteer experiences through pictures and video, and then submit a 250 to 500-word reflection essay on how their service has made an impact on their life and community. Students can receive a varsity letter for every 150 volunteer hours accumulated, up to a maximum of 2 letters in Volunteer Service per year. 
Over time, these students have volunteered in a variety of activities. A number of school clubs - like Key Club, Interact Club, and Builders Club - exist in school to provide an opportunity to serve. In addition, all of our schools participate in March Gladness. The most recognizable manifestation of volunteer work in our district resulting in near to a hundred community service projects and opportunities. March Gladness –an effort through Community In Schools – is just another opportunity when students can practice service above self and make meaningful connections. 
Congratulations to all our Volunteer Service Award recipients for your selfless efforts in making our community a better place.
