More than 150 children, along with their families, celebrated El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day) tonight. The event was organized by Pescadero Elementary School teachers, Puente, and the Pescadero Elementary School PTA.
The event was marked by teacher-led games, a reading corner, crafts, a raffle and food. The program ended with the distribution of book bags to each child. The bags included school supplies, books, toys, puppets, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and more.
Many thanks to the teachers, staff, parents, Puente youth staff and volunteers. Also, too, special thanks to Martina Tello from the Half Moon Bay Library, the Coastside Mothers Club, Donna Lindsay, and the Congregational Church of San Mateo.
