Community Service

Taking Action for the Greater Good

Recently the CS Advisory Board, otherwise known as LA Cares and Rotary Interact Club received four awards from PIN, the Parent’s Independent School Network. The projects that were recognized were Rise Against Hunger, Sleep In Heavenly Peace, Spartan Creations and Spartan Collections.

Click here to "Take Action for the Greater Good..."

PLAY Baseball, BAKE for CS Concessions, HELP make Spartan Creations, PAINT a ceiling tile – all the ways you can give back, meet others, and have fun (and, of course, meet the 6-hour CS requirement).

Green Bag Collection: Pick up green bags to donate and earn CS hours! The last Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry food drop-off is the last week of the school year. The final day for drop-off is June 9, in the student lounge. Let’s make this collection the largest yet! Green Bags to fill are available from Mrs. Clark.

Remember: 2 bags = 1 hour
Two hours max for food donations as CS hours

LA’s community service requirement is six hours per year, every year of attendance. Note: we do not accept summer hours to satisfy our small six-hour requirement. Students should ask their advisors to look up what we have on file for their community service.

LA offers projects on the weekends - click here for the list.

Students can volunteer for a non-profit in or near their home community and send in their verification - click here for more information.

UPDATE: Car Wash has been cancelled for this year.

Community Service Concessions

Concessions sold at LA sporting events or during the school day support community service projects that students have chosen to do. Rise Against Hunger often sponsored most of these tables, we’ve made a transition to call the tables “CS Concessions” so the proceeds can be used for more than just the RAH meal packaging event. We do not donate the money – students use the money to buy what they need to DO something for an organization. For example, we buy blanket material to create blankets for the homeless, food to make meals or desserts for community meals, materials to build beds for kids and supplies to package meals. So if you need a snack while at an athletic game and you see a table being run by students stop by to help LA students Take Action for the Greater Good!
