All LCHS students are required to complete 60 hours of community service by May 1st of their senior year. In addition to the 60 hours required by the school, several Honor Societies have service requirements. When students enter hours, they can apply hours to meet those Honor Society requirements.
How to enter service hours on RenWeb
1. Log in to RenWeb.
2. Click on “Web Forms,” which is under School Information.
3. Complete ALL the information for 1-5 Service Events, then click “Save” at the bottom of the screen.
4. After you submit this form, RenWeb notifies Spiritual Life, and our staff must approve the entry before it will post to your total Service Hours (listed under Family Information).
In order to keep accurate record of service, students may find it helpful to keep track of service activities on their phones or on a sheet of paper. Students should note the date, the total time, the description and location of service, as well as the name and phone number or email of the adult who supervised each activity.
The Service Club sponsors four school-wide events each year: the St. Vincent Mission Christmas Drive, DanceBlue, Bowling with Buddies, and the God’s Pantry Canned Food Drive. In addition, the Service Club promotes a wide range of school and community projects throughout the year. Service Club members receive a monthly email that details many service opportunities, and all students have access to the various postings on the Serve Board.
We encourage students to do service that is meaningful to them, including service to their parish or place of worship. If students have their own idea for a service project, they can submit a proposal for the Service Club officers to consider (proposal forms are on the Serve Board). If they are not sure if an activity qualifies as service, they should talk to someone in Spiritual Life.
Meeting the Requirement
Seniors who complete and submit 60 hours of service by May 1st will earn an Honor Cord to wear at graduation, and their transcripts will state they completed the requirement.
Students who exceed the required 60 hours and demonstrate leadership in service will be eligible for the following special awards:
• The St. Francis Service and Leadership Award – presented to freshman and sophomore students • The Lee McGrath Service Award - presented to junior students • The Heart of a Champion Award - A $500 college scholarship is awarded to one senior student for outstanding community service and leadership.
Failure to Meet the Requirement
Seniors who do not complete and submit 60 hours by May 1st will not wear the Honor Cord and their transcripts will state they did not complete the requirement. In addition, they will be ineligible to wear any honor insignia (Beta Club, National Honor Society, Tri-M, and any of the World Language Honor Societies) at graduation.
