Christian Service is a requirement for graduation at Prep. As a Jesuit school, we believe that it is invaluable for each student to spend time serving the underprivileged of his community, witnessing and coming to understand a different way of life. To fulfill their Christian Service requirement, freshmen are required to spend a day in service with their homeroom. For the 2015-2016 school year, the assignments are:
|1A, Mr. Innis||Picnic for Chidren from The Nurturing Place||October 7, 2015|
|1B, Mr. Hollywood||Saint Peter's University Campus Kitchen||October 17, 2015|
|1C, Mr. Vaznelis||Halloween Party for Hudson County Catholic Schools||October 24, 2015|
|1D, Mr. Caulfield||Board Games Night @ HANDS||November 3, 2015|
|1E, Dr. Hartling||Christmas Party at the Harborage||December 5, 2016|
|1F, Mr. Que||Saint Peter's University Campus Kitchen||January 10, 2016|
|1G, Mr. Caslowitz||Board Game Night @ HANDS||March 8, 2016|
|1H, Coach Hansen III||Easter Egg Hunt for Hudson County Catholic Schools||March 12, 2016|
|1I, Mr. Campbell||Senior Citizen Prom @ Little Sisters of the Poor in Totowa||April 16, 2016|
|1J, Ms. Simonson||Saint Peters University Campus Kitchen||May 7, 2016|
|1K+1L, Ms. LaBruno + Mr. Keating||Field Day for the Boys & Girls Club||May 21, 2016|
Additionally, students will attend an orientation session with me prior to their afternoon of service to prepare them, and a reflection session after to allow them to process their experience. These will take place during the freshman lunch period. Students will also be required to write a brief reflection paper. The questions for the reflection paper can be found HERE.
Freshmen must attend the day of service their homeroom is assigned. If the student ABSOLUTELY CANNOT attend that day, please contact Ms. Toomb at firstname.lastname@example.org or (201) 547-6457 immediately to discuss other dates.
