Community Service

Elementary students are currently in their 5th year of conducting monthly service projects that are led by a different grade level each month. Organizations served have been Operation Christmas Child, active military personnel, and a host of others. Our goal is to emphasize compassion and the ability to think outside of ourselves by helping to meet the needs of others.  

Each January, Northland elementary students collect canned goods for people in the local community who are in need. The food is donated to the MANNA pantry, an outreach program of one of the local churches.

Other class-wide and school-wide service projects emerge as the needs of the local community arise.

Service Hours are required to enhance social and academic learning while developing character and citizenship skills.

  • Middle School Requirement .........15 hours per year of attendance at Northland
  • Middle School Service Award .........75 hours in one year
Service Hours are entered twice yearly -- at the end of the fall semester and at the end of the spring semester. Service hours are due December 11 (for the fall semester) and March 31 (for the spring semester) - NO EXCEPTIONS.
 
The service hour year runs from May 1 - March 31 each year. Any hours earned after March 31 will be credited to the following year.
 
Hours must be served with a non-profit organization or a qualified individual. To verify that your hours will qualify before serving you may email hharmann@northlandchristian.org with questions. Service hours should be limited to actual hours served, not practice, rehearsal, travel and sleeping hours. All service hours are unpaid hours.
 
NOTE: Only 10 hours of the school-sponsored school-approved yearly requirement may be completed on campus. Due to the unique nature of this year, we are waiving that limit for 2020-2021 ONLY.
 
These numbers are benchmarks only. Upon graduation from middle school or high school, the entire number of hours will be required (per number of years in attendance at Northland).
 
If you are working toward the Middle School Service Award, which is 75+ service hours in one school year, forms are due by March 31.
 
*Some secular colleges and universities will only recognize secular service hours.
 
Note: Please maintain copies of your service hour forms. Northland does not permanently store this documentation.
