Not Your Everyday High School Students
February 5, 2015 | By Danny Mendoza

These kids go to a " continuation " high school which in the publics perspective is a school where all the bad kids go. They usually are the kids receiving support and assistance due to numerous reasons but not today. At the end of January, these kids invited 30 foster families to a small festival they hosted at their campus on a Friday night and purchased all the kids brand new bicycles, provided food, face painters, photobooths, and entertainment. They even paid for a bus to pick all the kids up. 

THESE KIDS ARE AWESOME!!!
