Bring back our AMERICAN traditions to our schools!
I was shocked to find out our annual Halloween parade has been discontinued throughout our district. This is just not right. Growing up in America there are certain traditions and celebrations we have become accustomed to celebrating at home and during school! Saying the pledge of allegiance, Halloween parades, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations, New years, Valentines day parties and dances and Easter. These are our American customs and traditions and we should not have to give them up because others find them offensive! I'm so tired on my kids missing out on some of the things we all got to do as children and are some of the greatest childhood memories I have due to others saying they find it offensive. I say embrace our culture and we will try to embrace yours or keep your child home. Our children should not miss out on our traditional activities due to people crying they're offended. Tell me how children smiling dressing up as a cartoon character, a doctor, a super hero is offensive? They are just children having fun and if you find it offensive y9u have the right to keep your child home but do not take the fun out of our traditional holidays and functions! Do not take our children's rights to celebrate their holidays away!!!
