Non-Attendance Day - Martin Luther King Day of Service - Monday, January 21, 2019

Martin Luther King, Jr. was deeply committed to serving others. Each year on MLK Day, the students of ASCA honor Dr. King through acts of service. School is not in session on MLK day. Instead, students are asked to perform an act of service.

 

This Day of Service is about giving of yourself for the benefit of others. Your act of service should be directed toward the greater community. It should not be an act of service for your parents or grandparents; because helping them is something that you should always do. Additionally, it is incredibly important to reflect on how the activity has impacted you. Each student should fill out a Reflection Form on the service they completed.  The completed form should be submitted to their classroom teacher on or before Friday, February 1, 2019. 

 

SHPP’s Community Outreach Committee has scheduled multiple service activities for your convenience. These activities and the related signup links can be found in the list below. Many of you have signed up for these opportunities - THANK YOU!  There are still spots available helping with the Parish Cleanup at St. Margaret Mary as well as openings making cards at ASCA for the Caring Cards Ministry at St. Elizabeth Seton Church.

 

For those of you who are still looking for a volunteer opportunity, you are not limited to this list, as you can feel free to create and complete your own act of service. For example, you may choose to help a neighbor with chores, write a letter to a senior citizen, and/or volunteer with your family at an organization close to your heart.  With the snowfall that is expected this weekend, if you are able and with your parent's permission, you might choose to help a neighbor by clearing their walkway.   For our youngest preschool saints, we encourage you to create or take part in an age appropriate act of service to start planting the seeds of service;.  For preschoolers only, it is not required, but optional. 

 

For parents looking for an activity that can be done at home:  Operation Support Our Troops (OSOT), which is based in Naperville, provides support for our active duty military.  Students (and parents!) can write letters of encouragement to our troops.  See their website for further information:  http://www.osotamerica.org/get-involved/become-a-member/ Please contact Robin Beck at robindbeck24@gmail.com with any questions.

 

The community service activity can be completed any time during the month of January to allow families to complete community service opportunities in a way that works for them. We encourage you to find an activity that matches your passion and participate wholeheartedly. The reflection forms that we have received in the past have demonstrated how much serving others makes us feel good, and grows our kind and compassionate hearts into wanting to help others more and more.

 

We would love to share pictures of our students in service! Please feel free to send pictures of your student doing service for MLK Day to Robin Beck at robindbeck24@gmail.com. We hope to share these photos with our school community to celebrate our Saints in Service!

 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT THE MLK DAY OF SERVICE- MONDAY, JANUARY 21 

 

  1. Students are not in school (it is a non-attendance day).   Students and their family are performing acts of service in the community.
  2. Students are required to fill out and turn in a Reflection Form about their act of service by the Friday, February 1 deadline.  Students who do not turn in a Reflection Form by the deadline will be marked absent for the day.  Click here for the Reflection Form.  

 

Although students are not in school on Monday, January 21, this day is included in our total attendance days that are reported to and required by the State of Illinois. If your K-8 student does not turn in their Reflection Form by the February 1st deadline, they will be marked absent for the day.
