Reflection Instruction:
We would like students to think about the importance of health and wellness and the importance of volunteering. As our board president once said: Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer! 

In order to earn service learning hours, a reflection needs to be turned into a teacher who can input the hours into Power School. You need to address: What did you do? What did you learn? How was this an example of public service? 

Learning Standards/Objectives:
Our objective is to provide students with an activity to promote an active lifestyle while giving them the opportunity to observe and analyze procedures of a retail organization.
