Happy Halloween: A Sneak Peak of Our Students’ Celebration

Spooky season is upon us, and Halloween has finally arrived! It’s that time of the year where the streets are adorned with pumpkins, cobwebs, and scary decorations. We wanted to show a glimpse of how some of our 2023-24 students are celebrating this mystical holiday. May your day be filled with magical moments, laughter, and a touch of the supernatural. From everyone here at Aspect, Happy Halloween!

Lucrezia from Italy with her host mom, Kristin. Julie, their International Coordinator, says, “When Kristin’s church announced an International Trick-or-Treat event, Kristin and Lucrezia jumped on board. Lucrezia had a great time meeting new people and telling them about her country and her culture. Kristin had the opportunity to tell others how much fun it is to host an exchange student. Kristin said Lucrezia had a lot of fun and was all smiles!”
