IF YOU HAVEN'T READ "MY RANT" POST, READ THAT ONE BEFORE READING THIS POST (it will make much more sense)
I'm very glad to know that I'm not the only one who thinks it's ridiculous not to dress up for Halloween at school! What is the safety issue? I would love to know! The only thing I can come up with is that parents often dress up for the parade as well, which means you could have some creeps show up in cognito. That's the reason I think they should bag the parade, not the costumes!
Oh, at one time I also heard the excuse that it was because there wasn't enough room in the halls for all the parents and kids. Again. I say, then get rid of the parade.
But I do want to be a bit more clear about my "rant". I don't believe the PTA had anything to do with the fact that we are not doing costumes and the like at school.
Maybe we should just change the name of our school to Grin And Bear it Elementary.
