STUDENT SERVICE PROGRAM

 
All students will be required to do service. By the end of their senior year students will have done a minimum of seventy (70) hours of service. Seniors will be required to write a two-page summary/reflection paper about their volunteer experience.
 
Our goals are:

  1. To have students realize that it is our Christian obligation to serve others as Christ did.
  2. To meet family, school and community needs.
  3. To enrich students’ lives through volunteer experiences.
  4. To teach students about the volunteer experience at the freshman level through structured lessons in Social Studies class.
  5. To have individual extracurricular groups develop and implement service projects within and outside the school.

 

THE PROGRAM
 

Freshman Year (20 Hours of Service)
 
1. Students will be required to do at least sixteen (16) hours of “family service.” The service must be out of the realm of ordinary family responsibility. An example might be a student cleaning his/her bedroom is an ordinary responsibility, whereas babysitting for cousins without pay is out of the ordinary and is considered family service. This service can be done for an immediate or extended family member. All activities must be listed on the log sheet and must be signed by the person(s) for whom the service was provided.
 
2. At least one group service project (a minimum of four [4] hours) is encouraged. Group projects may be provided by the school and/or various extracurricular groups. Hours served must be kept on the log sheet and must have proper signatures.
 
Sophomore Year (20 Hours of Service)
 
1. Group and/or individual service will be accepted as long as an accurate log sheet with proper signatures is submitted. Group service projects may be provided by the school and/or various extracurricular groups. The total number of service hours must be at least twenty (20), but you are certainly encouraged to go beyond this minimum number.
 
2. The emphasis will be on service to the school.
 
Junior Year (20 Hours of Service)
 
Group and/or individual service will be accepted as long as an accurate log sheet with proper signatures is submitted.

It will also be stamped on their permanent record card. Students will sign a form witnessed by the grade level advisor stating that they have not fulfilled the requirement and that it will be duly noted in the student’s file and on the permanent record card.
