7th and 8th-grade students are required to dedicate time outside of the school day volunteering at school, church, and in the local community. This requirement aligns with our Catholic values of compassion, social justice, and service to others. Our hope is to foster in our students a sense of empathy, responsibility, and a commitment to making a positive impact in their community. By engaging in service, students learn to put their faith in action and develop essential life skills while embodying the teachings of Christ.
Throughout the school year, our entire community also participates in service opportunities, such as a Thanksgiving food drive and collecting toiletries and non-perishable items for our students to assemble bags for the homeless in the Chicagoland area. School-wide service initiatives promote a collective sense of responsibility, unity, and empathy among students, educators, and families. These opportunities allow us to create a positive impact that extends beyond individual classrooms, cultivating a shared commitment to serving others and making a difference in the world.
