Community service is an integral part of our school’s culture. Whenever possible, upcoming local opportunities will be included on this page to assist students with a desire to serve in the community.
Logging Hours: If students complete an LCCS Community Service Form and have it signed by the organization they have served with, we will log those hours into our system to create an in-house record of hours served. This is NOT a school requirement, but we are happy to help create this internal listing of a student’s service is they would like us to.
Outside Programs: We realize some students want to complete programs outside our school, such as the President’s Volunteer Service Award. It is important to note that LCCS is NOT a certifying organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award, nor do we track your records for that award. If you are working toward PVSA recognition, you must follow the guidelines they have set and be sure the organizations with which you serve are certified organizations and provide you the required documentation in order for your hours to count toward that goal. This is an entirely separate program for which you will keep your own records.
Mission Days: In the spring, our high school students have the opportunity to serve on a sponsored U.S. or International mission trip. Those not on a mission trip participate in Mission Days – two days of service to local organizations in groups determined by the administration. An LCCS Community Service Form is not required for Mission Days. If students require documentation from organizations they serve with, they will need to bring the appropriate form(s). The organizations we are serving with on Mission Days may not be certified for the PVSA if a student is working toward that goal outside of LCCS.
