CHRISTIAN SERVICE REQUIREMENT

Students in grades 7 and 8 will be required to perform 5 hours each school year in order to successfully graduate from 8th grade at St. Paul’s Catholic School. The hours will require that the student has proper supervision from a parent or guardian and is performed outside of regular school hours. Students will also have to have their service hours documented and signed by the individual whom they are doing the work for. A short reflection paper will accompany the log of hours. This service component is in place to continue our schools mission of instilling Christian values and making a positive difference in the world.
