We had a lovely time with the students and their families sharing a delicious hot chocolate and “paneton” (a traditional Bolivian Christmas bread). The excitement for our annual Christmas raffle and gift giving characterized the event.   

A special thanks to the students of the American Cooperative School (ACS CALVERT) who shared our Christmas celebration and organized presents for our youngest students.
