Community pumpkin painting at Salisbury Academy

Salisbury Academy

SALISBURY — Salisbury Academy and Footprints in the Community joined together for a day of camaraderie and artistic fun at a pumpkin painting event last weekend.

Held at Salisbury Academy, the family gathering offered an opportunity for relationship building as well as community inclusion for children with special needs, a cornerstone of the Footprints organization’s mission.

“The day was full of laughs and creativity. It’s just a perfect way to bring kids together to celebrate the seasons and the joy of childhood,” said Salisbury Academy teacher and middle school division director Brittney Wagner.

After painting pumpkins, the children joined together for a variety of games in the Salisbury Academy gymnasium.

This event is one of several held between the two partner organizations throughout the year. In addition to hosting several weeks of summer camp for Footprints in the Community, Salisbury Academy collects items for Footprints children at their junior kindergarten/kindergarten giving parties and embraces opportunities to come together in the community throughout the year.

“It’s always such a joy to see the smiles and opportunities for sharing and growth that come from our partner events,” said Salisbury Academy head of school Beverly Fowler. “It’s a wonderful friendship.”
