at Robert E. Lee High School are required to perform 200 hours of community
service before graduation. They can choose from a wide variety of
projects, some more innovative than others. Miles is assigned to
tape public service announcements at K-YIP. One night when the DJ
sneaks out, leaving Miles to run the show, Miles learns the hard way that
he should check the mike before singing alternate lyrics to the songs.
Jill gets a lesson in confidentiality while working for an adoptive services
agency. Someone lacks the true spirit of Christmas while delivering gifts
to poor families. Dwight learns a valuable lesson while tutoring
Mr. Gonzalez to take the test for a management position. Tommy has
the pleasure of directing a group of junior high at risk kids in a play.
See how the experiences of the students at Robert E. Lee compare to your
