Our school aims to develop students who aim to work to better the world around them. The Catholic ideals of social justice and servant leadership permeate the life of our school. Students have the opportunity to participate in service projects and activities to assist those in need in our school, parish, local community, nation, and world.
Some Activities Include:
Student Council sponsored dress down days for charity
6th Grade’s monthly assistance with the parish’s Aid for Friends congregate cook
Classroom service projects organized by the homeroom teacher and homeroom parents
A school wide service project for Catholic Schools Week which have included baskets of baby items for crisis pregnancy centers as well as birthday boxes for local food banks.
6th Grade Service Project
Each month, our 6th Graders work to prepare meals for the elderly and and home-bound through our parish's Aid for Friends ministry. The 6th grade students work along side other parish volunteers and put their faith into practice in a hands-on way.
6th Grade Safety Patrol
Our 6th grade students form our School Safety Patrol; after being installed at the October First Friday Mass, they assist in maintaining a safe school environment while providing a positive example for our younger students. The 6th graders assist with the morning drop off, dismissal, and assisting their bus drivers.
Aid for Friends
Our 6th graders assist our parish’s Aid For Friends group the second Thursday of each month. The students help the group prepare and package meals which are taken to the elderly and homebound of our community.
The Students Council at St. Ignatius consists of 8th grade officers who are elected in the late spring and classroom representatives who are elected within their classrooms. The members meet to plan activities in consultation with the faculty and administration to build school spirit as well as service projects. The students themselves actively plan their activities which helps them to build leadership skills in the pattern of Christ where they act as servant leaders who work toward the betterment of their school and community.
