Become a Knight of the Round Table
Students at Harter Middle School can become a Knight of the Round Table (KORT) member. A KORT member is a student at Harter Middle School that completes 30 hours of community service outside of the school day between the beginning of their 6th grade year and the end of their 8th grade year. The KORT program was a long-standing program at Kaneland Middle School and was dropped due to unfortunate funding issues. HMS is proud to be re-instating this program with the help of the HMS PTO.
KORT members receive a shield after attaining the appropriate number of hours of documented community service. Additional hours are signified by adding a star to the shield for every 10 additional documented hours. Students in 7th and 8th grades will be given a prorated number of hours required to become members of KORT and receive the shield. 7th graders will need 20 hours and 8th graders will need 10 hours to become members of KORT. A community service log sheet will be uploaded to the digital backpack soon so that students can begin working over Winter Break if they so choose.
