Formed by the principles of Catholic Social Justice, all students are normally required to complete 25 hours of service to the community each school year. This year being the exception, all students are required to complete 12 hours of service. At Kelly High School, we proudly pronounce that our students exceed those required numbers, oftentimes doubling or tripling the expectation.
During our annual “Kelly Springs Into Action Day”, over 500 participants from the Kelly community spend five hours performing various service projects including washing windows, performing yard maintenance, delivering meals to the aging, serving at soup kitchens, and striping parking lots. Over 2,500 hours of service is completed by the end of the day with the help of over 400 students, 50 faculty and staff, 40 parents, and 35 agencies; all with the same goal- to help others.
Among the rewarding feeling that comes from helping others through performing community service, students have the opportunity to meet people who are passionate about trying to make the world a better place. They see people in action who are living out a life of God’s work and love in our world and that is just as rewarding.
