On Dec. 7, University Prep Value High school started a Secret Santa gift exchange. Classmates who planned the Secret Santa event included Zayda Contreras, Melanie Orozco, and myself. We planned whoever wants to participate can get in on the fun. Participants can also leave out the school’s values no. 4 and 5, which are building community and giving back. We decided to do this because in the month of December we exchange gifts.

We will be on winter break soon, so this gives us the opportunity to have fun with our classmates and friends before the holidays. They will have until Dec. 18 to buy the gift, and will be giving the Secret Santa gifts on the last day before the break.
