In memory of Toni Gutierrez, we will be continuing our annual toy drive in her honor with Toni's Toys, starting on . This year we will be expanding our donations to multiple community agencies throughout El Cajon.
HOLIDAY TREE - The holiday tree will be located in the Guidance Center, where students can select a tag (starting on ) with the age and gender of a child they would like to purchase a toy for. Students then bring the new unwrapped toy and place it under the tree before . Students can keep the tag as a reminder of what they did and can place it somewhere special at home.
Last year our toy drive was a success because of every teacher who did so much to promote it in their classes. Posters and flyers should be ready by the end of the week, however we are trying to get the word out before Thanksgiving break. Please encourage your students to participate in this special experience.

WHO ARE TONI’S KIDS?
Each year, in addition to the toy drive, Toni would organize and collect gift cards from staff and community businesses to help Valhalla students in need during the holidays. In her honor, we named this special cause “Toni’s Kids”, because Toni never wanted to see a child go without a gift for Christmas.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED:
If you would like to donate a gift card to Toni’s Kids, we will be collecting them between . You can drop them off to either Marina Hernandez (AP Office) or to Tanya Bulette (Guidance Center). Counselors will distribute gift cards to students confidentially before winter break.
Suggested Gift Cards:
STUDENTS IN NEED:
If you know of a student in need, please email or drop a note with the student’s name to Tanya or Marina before . If you know of their particular need (food, gas, clothing, etc.), that would be helpful in determining which gift card to give them.
*NEW - This year We will also have a box in the Guidance Center where students can confidentially let counselors know about friends or other Valhalla students who are in need. More info on this to come!
