PUEBLO — Staff members at a Pueblo school are showing that COVID-19 doesn't have to suck the fun out of everything.
Students at Beulah Heights Elementary had their pumpkin patch field trip canceled because of the coronavirus. Thanks to donations, staff members pulled through and brought the pumpkin patch to the school.
THE KIDS STILL GET A PUMPKIN PATCH: Since COVID-19 has prevented students at Beulah Heights in Pueblo from going on a field trip to a pumpkin patch, staff at Beulah Heights decided to bring the pumpkin patch to the school. The kids were beyond excited. @KOAA pic.twitter.com/ihV99TDOi1— Carl Winder KOAA (@CWinderKOAA) September 30, 2020
"I think with everything going on, it's been pretty stressful on all the kids and we wanted to bring a fun activity its about as good as the first time we saw them come back so it is a wonderful thing to see," said pumpkin patch organizer Hope Reilly.
The online students also got to share in the fun. They got to pick up their pumpkins at drive-thru spot at the school.
