St. Peter’s Catholic School students know the meaning of service. Whether students are corresponding with servicemen, visiting the elderly, donating used clothing for the Koats for Kids drive, sending letters to seminarians, volunteering at our local fish fry, or just helping younger students in the lunchroom, at recess, or during mass our focus is on service to others.
Closely linking knowledge of the Virtues helps us teach students about service. Each month our students focus on one of the Theological or Cardinal Virtues. One of our classrooms presents information about the virtue to all of the students through a skit, video and display. Then, we complete a service project focused on that virtue.
