Last month’s Ruta La Paz race in Tamarindo drew more than 500 participants and united the community through a healthy, enjoyable sporting event that raised funds for local scholarships at La Paz Community School. Also, the school hosted a special event Dec. 2 to thank Alejandro Berkowitz for donating two hectares of property for the construction of a new facility. The entire school met for the celebration at the new site in the Mar Vista development in Brasilito. Construction on the first phase, a 1,500-square-meter facility, is expected to start in February.

Country Day School hosted its Holiday in Paradise gala Dec. 3 at the Reserva Conchal Beach Club. More than 300 people enjoyed the great ambience, food, music, raffles and silent auction. Beach Club managers William and Diego did a wonderful job, as did the organizing committee.

Country Day School also held its third annual Read-a-thon Dec. 3. All proceeds will go toward buying school supplies for needy children in our community. Although public school in Costa Rica is free, many students cannot afford the basic school supplies needed to attend. For the past three years, Country Day has teamed up with the nonprofit CEPIA to provide these kids with the supplies they need to go to school.
