Community Service Program Requirement
In fulfillment of the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame and the philosophy of La Reina High School & Middle School a designated number of Community Service hours are required of all students. This service is to be completed in the larger community, giving the student an opportunity to share her gifts beyond the school.
The minimum number of hours is as follows:
- Grades 6-8: 5 hours/year
- Grades 9-12: 20 hours/year
All service must be completed through a pre-approved non-profit organization. Students must submit verification of hours by the designated dates:
- Grades 6-11: April 29
- Grade 12: April 8
Failure to complete the yearly service requirement will result in the student’s receiving an “Incomplete” in her religion course for the second semester. The student then has until the beginning of the following school year to fulfill the requirement. If the student does not complete her obligation by this time, her second semester religion grade will be lower by one letter grade.
A senior must complete the yearly service program requirement in order to graduate. The diploma will be held until the total requirement has been met and verified. The final transcript will indicate that the student has officially graduated when the requirement has been met.
If you need help finding a service site, please email Mrs. Beutner or check this list of organizations La Reina girls have worked with in the past.
