Community Service at Lawrence Academy
Our commitment to the community service program is reflected in our mission where we call on each other to take action for the common good and to cultivate a personal stake in lifelong learning.
Students must complete six (6) hours of community service for each year of attendance at Lawrence Academy. Hours should be completed during the academic year and community service opportunities will be offered on the weekends throughout 2016-17. Service opportunities can be found on the LA website and Parent Portal listed with the weekend activities offerings.
Attn: Seniors: You need to turn in whatever community service hours you have completed to Mrs. Clark by the morning of April 17th. If you do not have your hours done for this year or any years past you will be placed in one or more service projects over the next 3 weekends (4/21, 4/28, 5/5) until your hours are complete.
LA students may also arrange their own service opportunities, as long as they provide the school with a letter of participation from the non-profit organization at which they volunteer (specifically indicating the number of hours they have served recorded in the letter). All letters should be submitted to the Student Life Office, the community service coordinator.
Community Service Hours: All freshman, sophomores and juniors must have their 6 hours of community service done before the end of the school year. All documentation must be turned in by this Friday to Tanya Clark in student life. You may use the community service form from our website or have the organization you volunteer with write a note to us or send an email to Tanya Clark.
Spartan May Collection: Students donate items to the Rise Against Hunger Yard Sale (previously known as Stop Hunger Now) from their dorm rooms and lockers to help clean out the campus and reduce our trash footprint at the end of the year. We accept books, new/unused school supplies, clothing, dorm room accessories (lamps, storage draws, desk chairs, etc.) and gently used sporting equipment. Boxes are in each dorm, the athletic center and the student lounge. Yard Sale is 6/3 & 6/4 and is open to the community.
