Community Service Program Requirement
Grades 6-12

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. 



Submitting Hours for Approval

Students submit their service hours for approval and recording via the x2Vol feature of their Naviance Family Connection. X2Vol will keep track of service hours for a student’s career at La Reina, giving her a valuable record of her service when applying for scholarships and college.

X2Vol also allows students to learn about upcoming service opportunities and sign up for them right from their Family Connection Page. Students will receive email reminders about events that they have volunteered for as the date approaches.


When completing her service, students should be sure to request the email address of their supervisor as x2Vol requires an email address to verify service hours.


Please use the following tutorials if you need help using x2Vol:

Senior Service Learning Experience

Senior Service Experience Kairos Retreat and the Senior Service Experience operate concurrently during the fall and spring of each year.


During the Kairos retreat days, it is a requirement that each Senior who is not on retreat participate in the days of Senior Service Experience with her classmates at various locations. Senior Service is a requirement for the completion of the high school graduation requirements.

Questions about service hours, requirements, and approvals should be directed to Mrs. Emily Beutner, Director of Service Learning & Leadership.
