Applicants must perform five community service hours each time they apply for the Honor Society. Hours can be completed on a date after the applications are due, but the student must get the signature of the person who will be supervising the community service hours stating that they will be completed at a later date.
Are you looking for a way to earn some service hours? The Friends of Castaic Lake have a monthly "Pride in the Lake" day where you can earn hours by helping keep the lake looking great. You can find our more about this event by checking out the "Pride in the Lake" link at www.castaiclake.net .
