Incoming 2019 8th Grade Community Service Opportunities | 4702 Merrick Rd | Thursday, 22. August 2019

Dear Incoming 8th Grade Parents:  Your 8th Grade student will need to complete a total of 10 hours of community service as part of the Confirmation requirement. 
Community Service is considered doing something for the good of others in the community without compensation.  Students will earn seven hours of service through these types of  opportunities.  They may serve as volunteers through the Faith Formation program as room helpers for our 1st and 2nd grade Saturday or Tuesday school classes, SADD club or other such service clubs through school, do community service through Scouting programs, volunteer as a Summer Rec helper – not a paid position – serve as helpers for the young cheerleaders, sports teams, etc. are able to use the time served towards their community service hours.  
Three hours will be parish service projects:

1 hour service at a 9:30AM Family Mass
1 hour service at an 8:45AM as a Grade 1 and 2 Faith Formation School Program helper
1 hour through 'Blessings Box' donations.   

They can begin this work now.  You will find a Service and Participation form attached to the email and hard copies will be distributed at their first class in September. 
We have several opportunities here at St. Rose available for your child to participate in.  
IMPORTANT:  If your child would like to participate in those that we have available during the summer, please select the date and type YOUR CHILD'S NAME into the 'Your Information' section along with your email address.
