CKS Serves

CKS Serves was formed during the Year of Mercy to enrich our spiritual life through service opportunities based on the Corporal Works of Mercy and to encourage our students and their families to live out their faith through service to others. It was recognized by Today's Catholic Teacher as the most innovative program for total community involvement in 2017.

The CKS Serves service projects are done after school or on the weekends and are designed for families to participate together. You can sign up for service projects at our Shutterfly site or find opportunities to serve on your own.

If you have any questions or any suggestions for service projects, please contact Lisa Blanco or Robin Minson.

Grey Nun Service Certificate Program

The purpose of this program is to encourage CKS students to live our faith within our community, to remind our students that we should strive to be Christ for others, to teach our children to use their gifts for those who are most in need and to honor and follow the mission of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart, the founding teachers of our school.

In the spirit of St. Marguerite d’Youville, the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart strive to be signs of God’s unconditional love as we collaborate to create a more just and compassionate world.

Guidelines:

  • Service projects may be completed on your own or through CKS Serves from June 1 - May 10.  Hours from classroom service projects and other service related projects done during school make a tremendous impact but will not be counted for this purpose. We encourage each student to engage in age appropriate, meaningful service projects that interest that student and best engages the gifts that God has given to that child. Families are encouraged to participate together in service projects, but the student needs to be engaged and have his/her own responsibility within the service project.

  • For projects done with CKS Serves, there will be a sign-in sheet and each student that participates must sign in separately. For projects done outside of CKS Serves, each student is responsible for completing completing the Grey Nun Service Project Form which includes:

    • (i) having it signed by the leader of the project at the time of the project,

    • (ii) completing the questions on the form and

    • (iii) turning in the form at school to your teacher or electronically at CKSGreyNun@gmail.com. Forms without a signature will not be accepted.

  • The number of projects required to receive the Grey Nun Service Certificate is outlined below; however, we encourage you to fill out a form for each service project you do so we can keep track of our overall service and additional hours will count toward the St. Margaret d’Youville Service Society as described below.

  • Students who complete this level of service will be recognized by Monsignor and the principal at the end of the school year.
