I am on a committee that is meeting this week to discuss Halloween. I am curious as to what all of you do to celebrate Halloween in your building. Currently, it is an absolutely crazy day and it seems to get worse every year! The committee that was formed wants to still have Halloween and have it be a fun day for the kids, but less stress (if possible) for the teachers and office staff. We need to definitely make some changes. -Do you have a building wide school event or does each teacher/grade level do their own thing? -Do your kids wear costumes to school or do they bring them to school to change into later? -Do your kids bring treats to pass out? If not, does the school provide a treat for that day? -Do you have some sort of costume parade? -Do all the grade levels participate or only the younger grades? -Do you have specials that day? (thats a biggie in my building because everyone wants to schedule the party around their special so they still get their prep!) I realize that many schools have eliminated Halloween, but in my area all the schools still celebrate the day. I would love to get some neat ideas to take to the committee. Thanks.
