Students can write a short essay, create a poster, or do a photo slide show with captions for their reflection. Your reflection should address: In what way did I demonstrate being trustworthy? In what way did I show respect for the rights of others? Why was this project a public service? Upload your reflection to your dashboard. 

    4. You must arrange for one of your teachers to input your service learning hours to Power School. Show the documentation from Coach Brian and your reflection to the teacher.
