Important Message from Mrs. Ellen Fellows (SVHS SSL Coordinator)

Hello Students and Families,

Congratulations to our seniors who have gone above and beyond in obtaining their Student Service-Learning hours (SSL) for graduation!  We have many students who are set to earn the county SSL award of 240 hours or more completed.  Please turn in any unsubmitted hours to the tray in counseling services or to on Form 560-51 by Friday, April 5th at 3pm.   

As you know, students must earn 75 SSL hours to graduate high school.  If you do not have these hours, you will not walk the stage and will not graduate high school on time.  We are asking all students to complete their hours by April 1st (if this is an issue, please see Mrs. Fellows as we always can find a way to complete them).  We do not want you to wait until the last minute.  We still have approximately 28% of the seniors without the minimum amount of 75 hours complete.  

We have plenty of amazing opportunities (please see link below).  If you are working and have limited time to complete the hours, please see Mrs. Ellen Fellows in the counseling office at lunch.  Students who currently do not have their hours complete are in the process of being called down to make sure they have a plan for completion as well as notifying families.  Approximately 45% of the seniors who are not finished with their hours have less than 10 hours to complete.  Let's figure out how to get this done as quickly and efficiently as possible!  

In addition, we have plenty of county and school-wide opportunities.  We are here to help.  Please click the link below to explore available opportunities.

For questions or concerns, please contact Ellen Fellows, School Counselor and SSL Coordinator at or 240-740-6429.  Thank you!
