'Caring is Sharing'
Pupils at St. Patrick School in Rodeo know the true value of service. Through the school's Service Learning Program, teachers introduce Catholic Social Teaching and help pupils understand the value of giving. In the fall, pupils bring in more than 2,000 pounds of fresh produce for the local food bank, hold a Change for Change Penny Drive to support World Food Day, provide daily canned goods for the local Share Manna Food Pantry, put together 70 Thanksgiving dinners for the parish St. Vincent de Paul Society, and collect warm pajamas for Casa of Solano for young children in the foster care system. With the motto of "Caring is Sharing" students actively live out their faith by being people of service to others.
