Service Projects

Giving back through Service at StJPII

The moral and character formation of students is a priority at StJPII. Thus, service to others and to the community is an essential part of the curriculum through the seven Corporal Works of Mercy. Each grade level participates in service projects during the year, as well as school-wide service projects. Through our service projects students are given the opportunity to share with others the gifts they have received.

PreK/Kindergarten Service Project
PreK and Kindergarten worked together to complete a project to Feed the Hungry. Both grade levels brought supplies to provide lunches for homeless Houstonians. PreK made over 150 bologna and cheese sandwiches, and Kindergarten decorated lunch bags and filled them with chips, drinks, cookies, etc. The lunches were donated to St. Cyril of Alexandria Parish Ministry to the Homeless. This committee goes out weekly to hand deliver food to those on the street. Thank you PreK and Kindergarten for your generosity!  - Corporal Works of Mercy: Feed the Hungry

Upcycling with a Community Service

The seventh-grade SOAR group would like the StJPII community’s help with their project. The girls are hoping to create upcycled clothing from donated items, with a service twist. If you are planning to do some closet cleaning over the next few weeks, please consider donating gently used clothing to this project. Any clothing not used by the girls in their project will be donated to a charity, such as Star of Hope, the Gabriel Project, or Salvation Army.  Please consider donating to this creative and worthwhile project. Clothing accepted would be gently used children's, women's, or men’s shirts, pants, skirts, shorts, etc.
