Dallas Lutheran School requires students to accumulate 60 hours of community service credit between the first day of their freshman year and the end of the first semester of their senior year. This helps students learn and appreciate the joy of being “other centered” as well as proclaim the Gospel of Christ to the community. This community service is done in addition to participation in Beyond My Front Door events. Community Service projects MUST be authorized prior to the beginning of the project. Up to 30 of the 60 required hours may be earned at DLS. Service hours may NOT be earned for a project for which students are compensated. Service hours received from Mission Trips and serving as a camp counselor are capped at 10 hours a day. (Travel days are not accepted.) Service hours must be earned outside of the normal school day. Service hours must meet the needs of or benefit a non-profit organization or community agency. Service hours may not be earned for projects sponsored by parents, relatives, or friends.
Students must use the school provided service hour documentation form for to submit their service hours.
