Service Hours at ASA

Forming Saint to Serve All 

Strengthening Service as a Core Value at All Saints Academy - Guidelines for Parents 
The Mission of All Saints Academy is to serve and partner with our families, parishes and communities as we focus on the spiritual, intellectual, moral, social and physical development of our children. Integral to these partnerships is our commitment to helping students develop a lifelong desire to serve others.
Service is one of ASA’s core values and is a part of life both outside and within school. From pre-K through 8th grade, ASA students are expected to increasingly demonstrate their “love for neighbor” by serving others.
As a parent, you are encouraged to assist your child and perhaps even join your child to meet yearly expectations for service at their designated grade level: 
preK-3 – 1 hour
4th – 2 hours
5th  -- 3 hours
6th  -- 5 hours
7th – 10 hours
8th – 20 hours
To be inducted into the Saint Francis of Assisi Society at graduation 8th graders must log 30 or more service hours. To receive the Saint Teresa of Calcutta Award at graduation 8th graders must log 40 or more service hours 
At the beginning of the school year teachers send home Service Hour Log with each student. Students can also submit their hours via the Online Service Hour Form. Talk to your child about service and help them come up with ideas of how they might fulfill their requirement. 
When they have completed a service activity, be sure they write it on their service log. The activity sheet should be signed by the adult in charge of the activity. Parents may sign for service activities as appropriate. Log are due in May each school year. Student that complete their hours before the end of the year will be recognized with a Thank You Note at the trimester changes.
