High School Silver Cord Community Service Recognition Program

6:8 is working with Sauk Prairie High School to begin a program this school year to recognize students for their community service.  Students who complete 160 hours of Community Service throughout their 4 years of High School (pro-rated for the next 3 years) will receive a Silver Cord to wear at graduation.  As an official school organization, the Silver Cord Program has a faculty advisor (thank you to Bill Been for volunteering), will track the hours, and have students include reflections on their service experiences.  6:8 will also work to provide opportunities of service for the students, though thestudents are ultimately responsible for obtaining all of their hours and turning in their forms.  If you have service ideas or would like to get involved in the Silver Cord         

Program, please email: scramthun@gmail.com 

We are VERY excited to bring this program to Sauk Prairie!
