Service Hours

Service In God’s Name (S.I.G.N.)

The Service In God’s Name program is designed to help teach and encourage volunteerism among the student population along with offering students the opportunity to grow in personal responsibility and Christian Charity.   For this reason, the program has two major components: performing the service hours and turning in the verification on time.  We have forms available in the religion room, however, this form is not required, a piece of paper with the time, date, activity performed and the appropriate adult’s signature is fine.

 

The Service Hour requirements are as follows:

GRADES 7-12

5 Hours for Family or Friends

5 Hours for Church or School

5 Hours for Church or Community

15 Total per semester

It is the responsibility of the student to keep track of the hours and categories of hours they need.  The students are required to fulfill half of their service hours before the end of the first quarter of the semester (indifferent to category).  They are required to fulfill the second half of the service hours in all the appropriate categories before the end of the semester.  Turning hours in early is appreciated.

 

STUDENTS WHO OBTAIN A TOTAL OF 70 OR MORE HOURS IN A VARIETY OF AREAS MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR A SERVICE AWARD ON HONORS DAY.

 

Service hour due dates are as follows:

PLEASE NOTE: FAILURE TO COMPLETE THE REQUIRED HOURS WILL RESULT IN THE RELIGION QUARTER GRADE BEING LOWERED BY 7%.  HOURS TURNED IN LATE WILL RESULT IN THE RELIGION QUARTER GRADE BEING LOWERED BY 3%.

Quarter 1 - Tuesday, sept. 29

Quarter 2 - Tuesday, Dec 1

Quarter 3 - Tuesday, March 1
