An update to the Scheme for Squeak project was posted recently:


I don't think it is very complete right now. It says on the page:

        The goal of this project is clearly to not make a complete
        Scheme interpreter. It exists other project who do that bether
        than this one (cf Links section). This is just a framework for
        showing how another langage interpretation could be implemented
        in Squeak.
        Only a very small subset of Scheme is understood in fact.
        Actually, only 

                lambda, +, /, *, begin, cons, car, cdr, define, =, <, >,
                if, let, let*, null?, quote, set! 
        are understood.

I filed the code into my Squeak image, but I haven't played with it
