Seraph Families!

Welcome back to a new school year at Saint Bonaventure High School. As a Catholic Christian school we work to share Christ with the world around us and bring his love to those we encounter. An important part of that is organized Christian Service. Christian Service is "a work of justice pleasing to God." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2462). This letter is to outline the SBHS 2018-2019 Guidelines for Christian Service.

1. School organized volunteer opportunities are now available to the students through the ivolunteer website which can be accessed below or at

  • They can select a project listed on the home page to find more detailed information about the date, time, and duties of the project. More oppotunities will be added as we progress through the year.
  • If they want to sign up, select the “volunteer” button and complete the pop-up form.

2. Student organized volunteer opportunities should be cleared with Mr. Palomares or Ms. Zabaglo to make sure it will be accepted as a project. Please do this through the Google Classroom messages function on the appropriate class page.

    Please read below for information on Google Classroom.

3. Each student will need to enroll themselves in a Google Classroom Course for Christian Service. Most, if not all, students use Google Classroom already, but if your child is having trouble please tell them to see Mr. Palomares during the school day.

    The code for them to enroll in their respective classroom is found below as well as the number of projects required of them. Once they have enrolled in the appropriate Google Classroom, they will have access to a Google Form which must be

    completed for each project and their reflection prompt for when they have completed all four projects. This reflection is a single paper synthesizing the four projects they have completed.

  • Seniors - Class of 2019 Google Classroom code: 3ltrvh
    • 4 projects during 2018-2019 school year
  • Juniors - Class of 2020 Google Classroom code: ijxr2o

  • Freshmen - Class of 2022 Google Classroom code: n5bwkai
    • 4 projects during 2018-2019 school year

Students will need to search out opportunities beyond what is posted on the page. While we will do our best to post opportunities regularly, there will not be enough opportunities that are school sponsored to satisfy the hours for our entire student body.

Thank you for your help and support in this very important part of Catholic Education.
