Nobody knows exactly what Halloween is going to look like this year, due to COVID restrictions. For the foster teens, who live and attend school at San Pasqual Academy, they look forward to celebrating this holiday and are also wondering what activities will be allowed to take place. They will be thrilled to learn that they are still remembered and supported by many caring individuals of this community. A special Halloween bag, filled with various Halloween items, was created for all the foster students at San Pasqual Academy. Charlotte Stanford, Emma Stanford, Whitney Nelson and Annie Nelson are from the group Young Women from the Olivenhain Ward of the Church of the Latter Day Saints. They donated the Halloween items and assembled these beautiful bags for the foster teens at San Pasqual Academy. One-hundred bags were created and Teri Summerhays transported these Halloween gifts out to San Pasqual Academy. This will be a “treat” for all the students and they will be surprised to receive such a special gift.
