Freshman Year Service Requirement

Christian Service is a requirement for graduation at Prep. As a Jesuit school, we believe that it is invaluable for each student to spend time serving the underprivileged of his community, witnessing and coming to understand a different way of life. To fulfill their Christian Service requirement, freshmen are required to spend a day in service with their homeroom. For the 2016-2017 school year, the assignments are:
Homeroom Activity Date
1A, Mr. Innis Picnic for Chidren from The Nurturing Place September 28, 2016
1B, Mr. Hollywood

Board Games Night @ HANDS  (North Arlington)

October 18, 2016
1C, Mr. Roche Halloween Party for Hudson County Catholic Schools October 29, 2016

Additionally, students will attend an orientation session with me prior to their afternoon of service to prepare them, and a reflection session after to allow them to process their experience. These will take place during the freshman lunch period. Students will also be required to write a brief reflection paper. The questions for the reflection paper can be found HERE.

Freshmen must attend the day of service their homeroom is assigned. If the student ABSOLUTELY CANNOT attend that day, please contact Mr. DiBrita at or (201) 547-6423 immediately to discuss other dates.
