On the morning of Service Day sign-up, on Wednesday, December 12, students waited with fingers crossed, hoping their homeroom would be called first so they could rush down and pick the best service project. 

This year, on December 12, to accommodate Academy’s burgeoning enrollments, administration split up the sign-up into two locations.  Freshmen and sophomores signed up in the science wing, while juniors and seniors signed up in the second floor foyer.

Because of the limited number of spots for each service opportunity, the grim reality of spending the day doing yard work replaced the hopes and dreams of playing with puppies and horses.  Of course, deep in their hearts, all Academy girls know that service to the community is what the day is all about,  and even yard work comes with its own reward of a job well done.

At the end of the sign-up process, girls who landed their top choices were eager for Community Service Day.  This year the date is set for Tuesday, January 29, during Spirit Week, also known as Catholic Schools Week.  As always, Academy girls will serve their community with compassion and hard work on this designated day.
