Santas of all ages help the needy We also heard from the student council at Vinci Park School in San Jose, which coordinated a fund-raising drive that brought in $400 for the Wish Book.
The students who sacrificed their spending money -- a dollar, quarter, dime, nickel or even a penny at a time -- raised this money,'' wrote Rob Curry, a teacher at the school at adviser to the student council. ``Even though many of our students are not wealthy, we are proud of them for giving what they could so as to make a happier holiday possible for other children who are in even greater need.''
Rob noted that one of the fifth-grade classes, the mighty Room 10, raised more than $200 of the total all by themselves.

I am so very proud of my class

I just want to let each and every one of the students in Room 10 that I am so very proud of what you all did as individuals and more importantly as a CLASS. By working together, we can do so very much.

Thank You!

Mr. Curry
