Cate Students Give Back In Public Service Day

On Wednesday, February 9, students and teachers from Cate School volunteered at 31 different locations as part of Cate’s annual Public Service Day. The groups embraced Cate’s motto of “Servons,” spending the morning at a variety of nonprofits, including nine different public schools, the American Red Cross, Direct Relief International, Food Bank of Santa Barbara, Habitat for Humanity, and Ty Warner Sea Center.

The director of Parks and Recreation in Carpinteria wrote, “Thank you for a great day out at Tar Pits Park. The continuation of work over the years with the help of your students is REALLY making a difference.” The principal of Adelante Charter School of Santa Barbara wrote, “When can the Cate students return? I heard many great comments about today — thank you so much for sharing the students with us!”
