Santa Claus Visits Paz

Christmas came early today for Octavio Paz students thanks to the enormous generosity of Gina Ruffolo VanValkenburgh who adopted the school and took on the challenge of collecting toys for all 373 students! 

She arrived at the school this morning with a U-Haul truck filled with presents for every student and even brought her own Santa Claus to hand out the gifts.

It was a very special day for Paz students and the entire school community.
