Our Regis Middle School and Regis High School Service Learning Programs are based on the tenet that learning and service are connected to the intellectual and moral development of each student. The goal for our students is to serve our community in a variety of ways, helping others outside of their immediate circle. Through service, our students will gain a sense of empathy for others, leading to a desire to contribute to our community through acts of service. It will also help to develop their teamwork and leadership skills.
Regis Middle School
A minimum of 10 hours of service are required at Regis Middle School each year. Five hours must be submitted by December 15 for a student to be eligible to attend the annual Ski Trip for Catholic Schools Week. The additional five hours must be submitted by May 15 in order for a student to be eligible to attend the Valley Fair trip at the end of the school year. Students are encouraged to have at least 2 of the hours served at their parish if possible.
Students should bring the Regis Middle School Service Hours Reporting Form with them when volunteering, that way, the organization supervisor or neighbor can sign the form. Turn in service hour forms at the school office.
Regis High School
A minimum of 25 hours of service are required at Regis High School each year. The emphasis of this work should be “outreach” to our community, primarily with non-profit organizations. In order to graduate, each senior must have their service hours submitted by the Friday prior to graduation. Non-graduating students must have their service hours submitted by May 31.
- We encourage a minimum of 5 hours to be served at one of our local parishes. This is your way to thank their members for their continued support of our Regis Catholic Schools. Examples: Lector, Eucharistic Minister, Choir, Fish Boils, Bible Camps, Sunday School, Church Bazaar, Altar Server, Parish chores or Regis Mass Altar Server. Students who are not a member of a parish or congregation are still required to complete 25 hours annually.
- 20 hours are to be community based, primarily with non-profit organizations. Examples: Scouts, Community Table, Food Pantry, Humane Association, Bob’s House for Dogs, Salvation Army, Regis Events, Sacred Heart Hospital, United Cerebral Palsy, City of Eau Claire Clean-Up Days, local hospitals, Chippewa Valley Museum, Beaver Creek Reserve, LE Phillips Library, Peer Tutoring, Elder Assistance, Rotary Club Service Projects, etc.
- Specific dates should be listed, not a general time period.
- Bring the Regis High School Service Hours Reporting Form and ask the organization’s supervisor to sign your form. If you forget the form, have them write a note for you and attach it to your form.
- Turn in service hour forms at the school office. Don’t wait until the last minute.
- All service hours are subject to approval. The Principal and Dean of Students will determine the validity of questionable service hours.
