• Community Service


    STUDENTS:  Community Service is a graduation requirement for all MMHS students to complete (40) hours of Community Service at an approved Non-Profit Agency.
    Looking for volunteers?  If your organization would like to offer community service to our students, please email Mrs. Isbell your contact information, a flyer and/or a brief summary which provides details regarding the event logistics and duties expected of volunteers.
    Students can only earn their (40) hours of required community service at a NON-PROFIT Organization.  If approved, your event will be advertised on our web-site and announced in our daily bulletin to our students.  

    Non-profit groups in Murrieta and the surrounding communities are holding the doors wide open for volunteers. There's no better time than to seek out opportunities to volunteer.
