As a faith-based school, we know that it is our duty to teach our students the importance of giving back, and that means participation in community service. By instilling the importance of church, school, family and community, we are working to ensure that our students become active members in their communities.
Students in Kindergarten through 5th grades are required to participate in at least 5 hours of community service. We understand that our youngest of students can't always be out in the community, so we encourage parents with younger children to help them in completing their hours by asking them to help at home. This establishes a great foundation for them to understand giving back as they grow and mature.
Students in 6th through 8th grades are required to participate in at least 10 hours of community service. At St. Paul's school we want our middle school students to understand the meaning of helping those in need and we encourage our students to participate individually or in groups to help better their neighborhoods and community.
