I had forgotten about that one Katie. It's so sad.

Can they have fun at St Patrick's Day or will it offend the shorter children? It's getting absurb.

A fire hazzard for having art work on a bulletin board?? Thats ridiculous. There is plenty of paper in schools other than on bulletin boards! I certainly hope the families of these children voice their opposition to this rule at a PTA meeting.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. You can COVER 70% of the wall. But 30% must be clear. I guess it burns slower that way. Who the heck knows where they come up with that stuff.

I don't think the PTA would have any authority over the Fire Chief.

Oh, and don't forget, many districts don't allow Valentine's Day parties either. Some poor child might not get one or might get one that is less than lovey, lovey and have their feelings hurt. Waa! Waa! Poor baby.
here long before it was a given, my daughters would send home notes, asking parents to pick up those inexpensive packs of valentines that had 30-40 per package. This way, the children would give one to each of the kids in the class and everyone was included. Now it's done in all the schools..Things like halloween are now called fall harvest, lots of parents feel halloween is the devils work!!! Christmas is winter break, so many different faiths and celebrating them all just can't fit the schedule, Easter is spring break..faiths again, roll with the times I suppose!

One woman in a county close to me fought tooth and nail to keep the Harry Potter books out of school due to the 'witchcraft'.

I don't need to explain about books like The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe.

Are they crazy or trying to get their 15 minutes of fame?

Although at times we hoped it would LOL!
We didn't have Ritalin, there were no more than 3 TV channels, computers were something on Star Trek, video games were at that weird place in the mall, and never had to be yelled at to go outside. Herding us in was the problem.
We even had chicken pox.
Good grief! How in the world did we make it?
Grrrr.
Hugs,
Pook
Amen...in a nutshell Pook! Good job.
