The Hospice of San Joaquin and Delta College will illuminate the holiday sky at the 26th Annual Hospice of San Joaquin "Tree of Lights" Ceremony, Tue., Nov. 25, 6 p.m. at Delta’s main Pacific Avenue entrance.

A seasonal Stockton favorite, this popular and festive ceremony rings in a dazzling opening to the holiday season.

Girl seen being dragged by teacher in video recounts incident


STOCKTON - An Edison High School freshman seen on video being dragged toward a pool by a physical education teacher spoke about the incident Friday.

Sandra Garcia said the teacher seemed obsessed with her getting completely wet, after she declined to fully submerge in the pool.

"I wasn't going all the way under water to get my hair wet,and he wanted my hair wet. He was doing hand motions saying he'd splash me. He wanted kids to jump in where I was at to get me wet," the 14-year-old Garcia said.

Another student recorded the struggle that ensued on her cellphone. The teacher, Denny Peterson, is seen for more than 90 seconds grabbing and trying to force Garcia into the pool.

Peterson was placed on paid leave shortly after the incident but then was eventually assigned to another Stockton school. That's when Garcia and her mother spoke to an attorney and then to News10.
