For many sophomores this will be their first ongoing experience with community service. The Marquette High philosophy centers on community support and a strong community relies on everyone's input. Therefore, it is a tradition for parents to volunteer for at least one of the scheduled service opportunities during the year.
Sophomores participate in bi-weekly service through their Theology class visits to Messmer/St Rose Catholic grade school (6 hours per semester). At Messmer/St. Rose they serve as classroom buddies: helping with homework, assisting with playground activities and reading with students. The remaining 6 hours are accomplished through participation in various MUHS sponsored activities (i.e. fall Open House, MUHS auction, club, homeroom or athletic team service activities) or personal projects such as volunteer activities through their parish, scout troop or other organizations.
