Hello. My name is Karen Demaio, and I am the Ward Melville High School Chairperson for the President's Volunteer Service Award. In light of our current shared challenges, the deadline for submission is being extended one week to April 10th. Please read the message below from PVSA District Chair Brian Pickford. When your student's forms are ready, please submit them to me as follows: Thank you.
The term unprecedented has suddenly become over used, and yet there is a no more fitting description we can assign to this time in which we are living. Presumably as a result of this pandemic, we have received a markedly lower submission rate than normally expected for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. We are fully aware of how tough these weeks have been when so many people are suddenly working from home, not working at all, helping children learn to adjust to online instruction, and caring for loved ones. However, we do not want any students who have gathered the necessary service hours to lose the opportunity to be recognized for their accomplishments.
To respect safety precautions outlined by so many medical experts, we ask that applications be emailed as a scanned attachment, a PDF, or even as a picture taken electronically from a phone to your PVSA building representative. Representative information can be found above and on each school's website.
Applications for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award were initially due tomorrow, 4/3. This deadline will be extended one week until 4/10.
Signatures are typically required to verify service hours. Emailed verification will be perfectly acceptable if you were unable to gather signatures prior to social distancing measures.
Any hours above 15 with one group typically require a letter, on letterhead, from the verifying organization. At this time an email from a representative of the organization will be perfectly acceptable.
If you, or someone in your family is dealing in a direct way with the effects of Covid-19 and need more time to complete your application, please reach out to me or to your building's PTA/PTO representation. We will of course offer as much leeway and support as we can.
Lastly, we want this opportunity of recognition for the district's students to be one of hope for a return to normalcy. We are eager to recognize the many efforts of volunteerism that make Three Village such a wonderful place to live. We are hopeful to be able to recognize the good works that our students do throughout the year.
