Service part of education in Tigard
Students at St. Anthony Catholic School learn about service at school and practice service at home. Each student participates in three service projects during the year: one all-school project during Advent, one all-school project during lent, and one project chosen by the classroom teacher.
Once a month, the students can earn a free dress day when they bring in canned food for the parish St. Vincent de Paul pantry.
"We support this very important project of the parish and welcome the chance to contribute to the needy of our area," says Karen Bolliger, the principal.
