Surfside Security held a fundraiser March 24 at El Castillo restaurant and bar with entertainment by Donnie Walsh and Carlos López with Electric Storm. The ₡4,000 ($8) admission included a free drink and a chance to win a wonderful door prize. Raffle tickets were sold for cool items like restaurant vouchers, catamaran cruises, surf lessons, fishing trips and more. All proceeds went to the Surfside Security Program.

Don Carlos and Dave Nelson gave a great performance March 26 at the Happy Snapper in Brasilito. If you missed them, you can check them out online at www.aplanetformusic.com or www.youtube.com/aplanetformusic.

The pre-K class from La Paz Community School recently visited Cecile’s Panadería in the Conchal shopping center, where the tots learned about baking and used their newly acquired skills to bake their own goods. The class also made pizzas and afterward enjoyed the food.

The La Paz school also had a schoolwide trip to Flamingo Beach on March 25 to culminate its current theme of wellness. The students participated in the second annual La Paz Wellness Olympics in mixed-grade teams, with a lot of fun but fierce competition, including among the teachers who raced against each other. Everyone got to jump in the ocean and cool off before heading back to school.

At the Country Day School in Brasilito, National Junior Honor Society members recently returned from participating in a leadership and team-building workshop and ropes course. One highlight included classmate Simone Augustine’s primal howl on the Tarzan swing, which was reportedly heard 10 miles away. Thanks to advisers Kim Baldwin and Amanda Bustos for guiding these leaders in some exhilarating new experiences.
