Halloween or Fall?

As I was surfing the internet this week, I came across this posting from The Education Wonks. It seems as though, once again, a little bit of childhood innocence is being lost to political correctness. Classroom Halloween parties have been banned at Kohl Elementary School in Colorado, so as not alienate those children who do not participate in the Holiday. The principal is allowing teachers to have “Fall” Parties, but no costumes can be worn. C’mon? As a classroom teacher myself, I can tell you that come the end of October, we are all in need of a little celebration. The first 8 weeks of school are hard! We put so much pressure on our kids to pass tests and master skills, what is the real harm in letting them be kids for 20 minutes at the end of one day? I understand that not all children can participate. Maybe a Fall Party is a solution for those students. But let’s just let them be kids…


And only because I am a true reading enthusiast… how about a game of Halloween Bingo at your Halloween Party? – Melissa
