1. Students are required to earn 24 service hours for the year. You may earn as many hours as you wish to complete the requirement at any time. See the two examples below:
Example 1: Susie earns 24 service hours during the summer before school begins. She has fulfilled her requirement for the year.
Example 2: Johnny earns 206 service hours during the school year. He has fulfilled his requirement for the year.*
*Even though Johnny went far above and beyond his "required" 24 hours, Johnny cannot "roll over" the extra hours for the following school year. In other words, each school year, service hours are set back to zero and students must earn 24 service hours for the new year.
2. Parents/guardians may not sign for their own child's service hours. For example, parents cannot sign off on their child's altar serving, etc. Students must obtain the signature of their pastor, parish secretary, etc. Exceptions may be made to this policy
3. Service hours are due by May 15 each school year. Students who do not turn in their service hours, or who do not turn in enough hours each year, will owe those hours before graduating from Geibel Catholic.
