Every site had an exciting end to the 2013 year. At the Martin Luther King Center, students had a pizza Christmas party on December 18th and a cookie decorating event the following day. Each child also received a gift card to Target stores. Thank you Charles and Earline Douglas and Holly Miner for making these events possible.
Twelve children from the Unitarian Universalist site and their chaperones were treated to see Bay Pointe's performance of The Nutcracker. Each child had a favorite part and enjoyed the trip. Thank you Sheila, a volunteer tutor, for making this possible. In addition to the ballet, Homework Central children from the UU site were "adopted" by the UU congregation of San Mateo and each child was given a personalized gift. A festive celebration was held as well.
At Sunnybrae Elementary School, children attended a Christmas party where everyone was given a gift. This site also played games and had a Multiplication Bee with prizes for students.
On December 16th and 18th, Park Elementary School site students enjoyed surprise gifts including a box of crayons, a box of colored pencils, a doodle pad, and a pocket-sized travel notebook. Thank you Sandra and the Hardy family for these presents. A little celebration was held on the final day before winter break.
