Chino Hills- Students in Chino Hills High’s AVID college preparation program threw a surprise party Thursday (Oct. 27) for a Moreno Valley boy after they learned via social media that no one showed up for his birthday party.
AVID student Sadie Santillan came to class heartbroken after reading a Facebook post by Tyler’s mother, who said that she threw a party for her son and no one showed up. Tyler reportedly told his mother that he didn’t know why “he was here.” So his mother requested birthday cards for him to show that there were people who care.
Sadie shared the story with her AVID peers and the students decided to throw Tyler a birthday party. Taking the lead in organizing the event were Sadie and AVID students Shailee Wyzykowski, Sherilyn Dong, Shelby Galletta, and Manny Lares.
The party, attended by dozens of Chino Hills High students and staff members, included food and birthday games.
