Community Service

Giving Day 2012 @ Westside BabyGiving Day Westside Baby







Service is an important part of the SLHS experience. Students and teachers participate in an annual all-school service day before Christmas in addition to projects completed by students during the school year.

One component of our core values is Community Service. This component reminds us that God, surrounded by others to care for and share Christ’s love through actions, places us all in a community. This is an opportunity for our young adults to begin preparing their hearts for giving their time and effort to others. A student may arrange their own service work. We will be posting opportunities below, in the Sunday email, and on Schoology as they become available. We are proud of our young people and their servant hearts.

Community Service project:

  •    Freshmen: 15 hours and a service project.
  •    Sophomores: 25 hours and a service project.
  •    Juniors: 35 hours and a service project.
  •    Seniors: 60 hours and Senior Project

A project is required to be turned into the school. This semester project should include:

  1. What was the purpose of your service work?
  2. Explain your goal(s) for volunteer work?
  3. How have you benefited from volunteering?
  4. How have others benefited from your volunteer work?

Students may choose one of the following for their project:

  1. One page essay
  2. 2-minute video
  3. 8 Slide PowerPoint

Please submit projects through the Schoology course Community Service. Projects are due by May 15, 2021.
