In order to earn service learning hours, a reflection needs to be turned in to a teacher who can input the hours into Power School. You need to address: What did you do? What did you learn? (Include what you learned about the outer islands in the Federated States of Micronesia) How was this an example of public service? (Include what you learned about the importance of reducing, reusing, recycling) and helping those who lack the resources that we do in Guam.
