Transitional Youth Academy (TYA) students and families celebrated the Halloween season at this year’s 2016 Falloween Festival yesterday at The Ditmar School. The Ditmar School is the location for TYA’s Student and Family Support Center, which has been serving the Oceanside community since last October.
