SIGN Program

Service In God’s Name for 7th and 8th grade students

"SERVICE IN GOD’S NAME” (SIGN) is a community service program required for 7th and 8th grade students at St. George. The community service requirement was developed to help students become aware of and involved in their community. The community at-large offers students a variety of placements for which they can volunteer while learning about the needs, concerns, and challenges existing in their community. It is our hope that this initial experience will spark an interest in our students to continue pursuing community service projects after they leave St. George School.

SIGN is a mandatory program and must be completed by the deadline, May 2, 2017 in order to receive a grade. This grade will be equal to a 60-point test grade in the fourth nine weeks of the school year. Each student will complete 6 service hours and fill out the required project sheet for each service project completed.  The final due date is May 2, 2017. The student may earn 3 (three) bonus points by completing his/her SIGN project and handing it in to the Religion teacher before Friday, January 6, 2017. Assignments turned in after the due date, May 2, 2017 will have 5 points deducted per day late.
