Service Learning

LBUSD Service Learning Initiative:

Helping our environment is a perfect way to earn your Service Learning credits! Beginning with the Class of 2007, all students must complete 40 hours of Service Learning/Community Service to fulfill the high school graduation requirement.  Students have the choice of doing several projects over their high school tenure or they can do all 40 hours with one project. Entering sophomores will be responsible for 30 Service Learning hours, juniors will need 20 hours and seniors 10 hours.


See the LBUSD Service Learning webpage or Mr. Sourbeer in Rm 1012 for ideas and information.

Phat Habitat Garden at JFA

Phat Habitat is a S.O.L.A.R. (Sustainable, Organic, Local, Agricultural Recreation) garden is located on the alley east of the JFA campus at 158 Forhan Street.  ACE and AIMS students have been busy on Saturdays tending the Garden. Two new walkways have been laid down, wooden borders have been constructed along the eastern fence and tomato plants, fennel, bell peppers, onions, carrots, cucumbers and various other crops have been planted.  Alfalfa and soybeans plants add nitrates to enhance the soil. Edible perennial plants have been added in some areas.  Contact Mr. Sourbeer (x2734) in Bungalow 34 for information on the lastest Service Learning opportunity.  We need you help!
