With specific goals of participation we seek to contribute to RECYCLING, REDUCING and REUSING. We annually participate in the Paper Marathon of the Children's Hospital Association. We participated in the Solidarity benefit event, bringing hundreds of kilos of paper and cardboard collected by the community throughout the year.
One of the institutional projects performed by the San Pedro School is "Hands on the Land." We have two school orchard spaces which our students learn to use, care and grow from Kindergarten through direct actions with our team of teachers specialized in the area. With this we promote a community farm work which extends to the Primary and Secondary Levels. We seek to promote the students' care for the environment and also a healthy eating through fruits and vegetables. This project seeks to implement innovative educational strategies within the teaching-learning processes.
With the experience of seventeen years at San Pedro School, where we directly manage the dining room, we have been able to observe the nutritional deficiencies of children and adolescents, and this concern led us to develop a food program, which we have called "Green Meals." This covers the educational and healthy eating in the dining room, and includes a nutritionist that helps our students to have an equilibrated and balanced diet according to their growth needs. In addition, we carry out an orchard project, called "Hands on the Land" with huge success among students. We also celebrate annually in October the "Month of Healthy Eating" with various activities to promote and encourage the Green Meals Program. During the year we also promote healthy eating activities such as Master Classes with renowned Chef, as Juliana Lopez May; teacher training courses such as the one from Danone Foundation: "Mom, dad, I prefer water;" lectures for parents with the subject "How to prepare healthy breakfast and snacks?" along with doctors and professionals from our city. Under the same program, we created within the school a natural cooking workshop, aimed primarily at mothers of school-age children, called "Natural Season", to offer an alternative to moms and dads who want to incorporate healthy techniques into their daily cooking, learn about new products and enjoy family meals full of nutrients to strengthen family health. We consider adult behavior is very important as a model when it comes to food, because food habits are also copied. For children, are his parents, with their usual behaviors, who claim and determine what is right and what is not. What leads a family to eat healthy food? Information and wish to give their children the best.
Once upon a time...Institutional Project of Literary Reading San Pedro Apóstol In order to educate our students as independent and sensitive to the world of literature and imagination readers, our school has developed the Reading Project, Once upon a time..., from first through sixth grades. This project has as central idea the reading of literary texts. In the school setting, the child accesses and participates in the world of Literature. This will allow him to look at the world differently, to express in a different way with the signifying power of language. The teacher has a key role in selecting the corpus and proposing, diversifying, expanding, contributing and facilitating the access to Literature so children may release their inner language and become part of the complex knowledge of language. It is necessary that the students learn different literary formats to discover the structure created by the author. This sensitivity is not acquired by higher rating of forms but from sustained reading and literary writing practices. The literary reading Project acquires the status of Art and includes the following objectives:
• To develop autonomous literary readers
• To develop critical judgment, imagination and vocabulary
• To value the literary reading as a world and oneself process
• To embrace diversity of possible interpretations in the fictional universe

The dissemination of science as a way of understanding the world is an exercise. So promoting the realization of a Science Fair is an invitation to the exploration for children and adolescents to acquire the taste and enthusiasm for Science. By promoting research, formulation and verification of hypotheses we help our students to become better students, be good citizens, sensitive and critical of the world in which they live. We are shaping better people, by helping them to think of solutions and to value life. Science starts with questions and amazement, the wonder, the thirst for explanation, observation and recognition of regularities. The Science Fair is an invitation to the disclosure of the processes that children perform in the acquisition of basic scientific procedures.
