CSW Service Projects


Service #1 - Trenton Area Soup Kitchen


As a school community, we will be making 500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches* for the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen. We will supply a brown bagged meal of a sandwich, fruit, cookies and drink. Our younger students will be decorating the lunch bags, our middle school students will be making cards of encouragement to be included in the bag, and our older students in grades 5 to 8 will be making all the sandwiches. The teachers, faculty, and school will be supplying all the items needed to complete this service project.


*Any student in grades 5-8 with a peanut allergy will be working in a separate room assembling the bags.


We are in need of some medium size boxes to transport the sandwiches to the shelter that afternoon. If you have any boxes laying around after the holidays and have not yet recycled, please consider helping us out. The boxes will not be returned.


Service Project #2 - Code Blue Shelter


We will once again join with the parish community and support the Code Blue Shelter. This shelter supports the local homeless community. The items will be boxed and delivered directly to the shelter.


You may send in the items between now and Friday, February 4th.


Here are the items that are requested for the Code Blue Shelter for Catholic Schools Week. Grade levels have been assigned specific items.

Preschool Families:

-- Individual wet ones or travel size baby or body wipes

Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2 and 3

Our positive case counts continue to decline and have leveled off this week. We will be relaxing some of the mitigation policies that we put in place after the Christmas break. PE classes have resumed this week. We will continue to look at the numbers and adjust the protocols when warranted.

Early Dismissals

This is a reminder that this year, the latest a student may be picked up for early dismissal is 2:15pm. This avoids any disruption in the end of the day routines. Please email all early dismissal notices to the homeroom teacher and Mrs. Walker at twalker@sischool.org .
