annual Day of Service held on Martin Luther King Day.
Over 300 elementary school students volunteer for

benefit a number of organizations.
Students at the secondary level have the opportunity
to serve through clubs like Take Action, National Hon-
or Society, the Green Team, Big Brothers/Big Sisters,
Key Club, the Builder’s Club, and Operation HELP.

need, and these clubs often organize their own initia-

(during the holidays) to assist the local community.
Many high school students opt to serve others
through the completion of their graduation projects.
The Class of 2018 completed approximately 18,000
hours of both career exploration and community ser-
vice through their projects.
PVHS has offered multiple clubs
