Migrant Christmas Fiesta 2011


Santa visits with children

On Sunday, December 18, 2011 Centennial BOCES had its annual Christmas Fiesta for our Migrant Families. The staff from Centennial BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) did a wonderful job hosting their annual fiesta for the migrant students and families in Morgan County as well as multiple sites in Northern Colorado. It has been a pleasure to work with them in the Fort Morgan area.

Below is some information provided by the Fort Morgan Federal programs staff.

We had a lot of new faces including many happy children that enjoyed visiting Santa who was assisted by the 2nd. year HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) volunteers of Fort Morgan High School Rebecca Segura, and Jose A. Maní from Baker Central.  Santa craft shop was run by 1st. year HOSA volunteers Marissa Avalos, Casey Castañeda, Tenneya Lundquist including Monica Avalos from FCCLA in Fort Morgan High School.  Santa Store was run by Jackie Segura, and assisted by Isaura Ibarra Ramirez, from Fort Morgan Middle School. Refreshments were served by our PAC Representative, Maria Maní and Migrant parent, Silvia Vargas.  We also had Jessica Vargas, Jacob Pascual, Estuardo Pascual, fromFortMorganHigh School assist in theRIF book table and Sydnee and Nathalie Pascual assisted in the clothes give away.  It’s always nice to see families come together for a good cause.  Centennial BOCES would like to thank all the student volunteers from the different schools as well as the parents and community members that so graciously volunteered their time to be here.  Lastly, thanks to Mark Rangel for his continuous collaboration and generous donation.  So in conclusion, we just have to say that our Annual Christmas Fiestas was a great success thanks to all the wonderful student and parent volunteers that made this whole thing possible. 

This event was a wonderful celebration to be part of. The CBOCES staff are a very dedicated group of individuals who make a difference in the lives of many on a daily basis! I look forward to our continued partnership changing lives one at a time! Please share this with others to showcase the hard work of the CBOCES staff.
