Community service is a vital component of the St. Luke’s experience. As the Gospel of Luke proclaims, “From whom much is given, much is expected.” It is therefore understood that St. Luke’s students should seek ways to share their blessings with others.
Students in grades 9-12 are required to complete a minimum of 80 hours of community service by May 1 of their senior year. Failure to complete these hours will result in the student not walking with his or her classmates at the graduation ceremony. Students in grades 6-8 are required to complete a minimum of 20 hours of community service by May 1 of their 8th grade year. Failure to complete these hours will result in the remaining hours being added to the student’s required hours for Upper School.
To receive credit for service hours, all students must complete a Community Service Record Form and return the form to Mrs. Hammons, Community Service Program Coordinator, within 2 weeks of the date of service. Summer service hour forms must be returned within 2 weeks of the start of the school year. Additional forms are available in Student Services. The form must be completed with ALL requested information in order to be considered.
Opportunities for community service are posted on the bulletin board in the Library. Community service activities that are not sponsored or advertised by SLES must be approved by Mrs. Hammons in order to count.
