Community Service

Social Outreach and Service Projects

We humbly serve our local, national and global community as part of our mission as Catholic educators. Our students learn the value of giving and serving through our monthly student-led service projects and the service program in 7th & 8th grade.

Each grade sponsors a service project for a month during the school year. Through these projects, students are actively involved in learning about social justice, world crises and socially responsible ways to support and help. Each grade designs their plan to encourage participation by the rest of the school and oversees the collection, sorting, and distribution of the items.

Students in 7th and 8th grade participate in community service as part of their Religion curriculum. Please contact Religion Coordinator, Mrs. Villamejor (mvillamejor@saintlawrence.org) for more information.
