Alicia Gutiérrez y Laura Castro dedicated a message to their stepdad.

By Ivanhoe Sol Team

In Latin America, Valentine’s Day is also known as Día del Amor y la Amistad. Whereas Valentine’s Day has a connotation for romantic interests, Día del Amor y la Amistad translated to English means “Day of Love and Friendship.”

In this spirit, the team at The Ivanhoe Sol reached out to people in and around Ivanhoe to gather words to their loved ones.

“Have confidence in yourself, don’t be affected by what others think.”

Eric, 9th grade student at Golden West High School

“You have to be responsible and do your homework so that you can enjoy what you like.”

Junior, 12th grade student at Golden West High School

“Always look for the positive in all things.”
