Langston Hughes Middle School students are required to complete 15 hours of service by the end of their 8th grade year. Service opportunities are available in school, both within and outside of the classroom learning experience. Students may also participate in non-school related service activities.

Students will log their hours and reflect on service in x2Vol – a website that students access through their FCPS Blackboard accounts.

2017-2018 COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS EXPECTATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS:

On Thursday, 11/2, all Hughes students learned about one way to demonstrate that we are caring and principled (our IB Learner Profile Traits for November): performing community service. All Hughes students must complete, log, and reflect upon a minimum of 15 hours of community service by May of 8th grade. To help students achieve the minimum, Hughes is requiring that 7th grade students complete, log, and reflect upon a minimum of 7.5 hours, and that 8th graders complete, log, and reflect upon a minimum of another 7.5 hours, to total the 15 required hours by May 25th, 2018. The Hughes IB MYP Committee of teachers will be verifying all hours logged and reflected upon in X2Vol. Students learned about how to log into X2Vol through ATL on 11/2. We encourage all students to go above and beyond this requirement. Service opportunities are available in school, both within and outside of the classroom learning experience. Students may also participate in non-school related service activities. Student reflections on their service must include the following:

  • 3-5 thoughtful sentences to explain:
    • The service completed/performed
    • Why service was chosen to complete/perform
    • How this service can connect to something they’ve been learning about or have learned about in school
    • Which of our IB learner profile traits did the service allow them to develop?
