Halloween At School?
At this time of year the topic of Halloween is discussed among many teachers and school administrators.
There are many points of view when it comes to Halloween:
- It’s a fun time for children to dress up and trick-or-treat.
- It’s a “Fall Festival” for children and adults.
- It’s a religious event that you agree with.
- It’s a religious event that you don’t agree with.
With so many different views on Halloween, how is it dealt with in schools? Here are some of the ways we’ve seen it done:
1. Children are permitted to dress up (no scary costumes, masks, or objects that may be used as weapons) and enjoy some Halloween games, stories, and treats.
2. Orange and Black Day. No costumes permitted – but orange and/or black clothing is encouraged.
3. No costumes or theme colors, but a special treat for snack with some stories and songs.
4. No costumes, no color themes, no treats, just some songs and a story before dismissal.
5. Fall festival: A time to be thankful and celebrate the Fall harvest. Food drive, outdoor games, and a nature walk.
How does your school (or family) celebrate at this time of year?
