Next Monday is Halloween, so I thought it would be fun to do a Halloween theme this week. Unfortunately, I can’t do much.
We can have a party on Halloween, but it is limited to only the last hour of the day.
Children can dress up, but they may not wear their costumes to school. They can change into them only for the party. Also, they can’t have any costumes that cover their face or have any violent imagery whatsoever.
Candy is strictly forbidden in our school, as is junk food. Children are allowed to bring cards to share with their classmates provided they bring a card for everyone or small, non-distracting Halloween goods that are related to school, i.e. pencils, erasers, stickers, etc.
For my party, I’m encouraged to only use non-competitive activities such as crafts, an educational G-rated movie, or dancing.
Also, I think it’s lame that I have to plan the entire party. Aren’t I supposed to have room moms or a PTA or something. It’ll probably just be an hour of Halloween word searches.
