Students decorate Christmas trees in honor of Vicki Soto

The Soto family recently asked if students from Stratford Academy Victoria Soto School could make ornaments to decorate Vicki’s trees at the Vicki Soto Playground. Kindergarten teacher, Pam DeAngelo, and first grade teacher, Mrs. Marybeth Petrella, organized the tree decorating event after school on Wednesday, Dec. 9 as a special act of kindness for any student who was able to participate. Jillian and Carlee Soto also joined.

More than 200 student-made ornaments were hung on the three Vicki Soto Christmas trees at her playground. A wooden sign on each tree made up the saying, “Live, Laugh, Love.” Students hung ornaments and also took time to run around and have fun on Vicki’s playground.
