NAPA, CA — A message, in honor of a Napa Valley Language Academy custodian, has been spreading throughout the school for the past few weeks, according to the Napa Valley Register.

"What Would Pedro Do?" is the message in honor of custodian Pedro Pereira, who suffered a stroke in early May, the article stated.

According to the article, the power of the message is seen in the little ways, such as sixth-graders cleaning up their trash from the lawn after being asked that simple question.

"Pedro is the heart of our school. As soon as we found out (about the stroke), we let the kids know to be thinking of him and praying for him," said Principal Deb Wallace.

Pereira has worked at the Academy for the past 25 years before suffering a stroke that has left him unable to speak but slowly regaining movement in his limbs, the article noted.

In order to honor Pereira and to help raise money for his medical bills, students have made "WWPD" bracelets, which they are selling for $5 apiece, the article added.
