    Too Scared to do Anything
    By JulieP

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Well, I am having a hard time with Halloween this year. I will confess that it is my favorite Holiday of all, even above Christmas.

    Our school only allows 2 parties a year; Winter and Valentine's Day. Most teachers are not even putting fall decorations up, let alone Halloween ones! Augh. And to make matters worse, I was warned by our music teachers that one of my students and her parents are very religious, and if I try to do anything related to Halloween, this child will demand time to preach her religion to the class since I am teaching about devilish things. The parent called the principal last year to complain about the music teacher as well because she taught the kids a song about pumpkins. The mother said she did not appreciate her daughter being taught anything that had to do with a Satanic holiday.
    I'm use to door decorating contests for Halloween, making ghosts, goblins, spiders, jack-o-lanterns, etc. Now I'm not sure what I can and can't do.
