Before I get into my question- I know there are some who will think I'm "over-reacting" and who think America (and teachers) have become "too PC" if I'm even concerned about this. I respect that opinion, but I don't share it. I believe that religion should be kept out of public schools as much as humanly possible, so please don't get on me for even being concerned about it. As I mentioned in the 'gifts for students" thread, I always write my 160+ students individual notes, thanking them for 2013 and trying to include something I've enjoyed about them. I'm getting a late start this year and when I pulled out my 6 boxes of "generic season's greetings" cards (about $35 in cost), it turns out they are all most definitely "Merry Christmas" cards. None are particularly religious, but they do say the phrase and some have Santa on them. I have no idea about the religious makeup of my kids, with the exception of one Witness, to whom I will not give a card at all (blank paper). Would you give out the cards in your school? My kids range from 14-20 in a very urban area. I really hate to waste the $35, but I would hate even more to A. alienate/insult a student or B. (and honestly, my bigger concern because I don't think my kids would be upset) get in trouble with my school.
