(eek! I'm not sure; Mr.K has my book o' CAS hours now. I know we did more than 30 so that's all I could put, I just don't know the specific dates off the top of my head. I'm also putting down the times we helped the middle schoolers, but as seperate from OM)

Chyeah, I think I put 25 or something. Creative to think of the middle schoolers, though! You should totally get "Creativity" hours for thinking of that. (Let's beat the system!)
