Ok the parents started calling today
Advertisements [?]
They finally figured out we are not having Xmas parties this week and they are PISSED. Last week, the district's legal dept made us take our Xmas trees down. So no way were we going to try to plan to have parties. We decided to have a movie day so the kids are going to spend a half a day watching a movie on the last day before the holiday. We still haven't picked out the movie; Christmas themes seem dangerous.

It is all so silly. The non holiday religious types have bombarded the school district with objections to Xmas and Halloween so we can't even mention those days anymore. Now the parents who do celebrate Xmas are pissed. So I guess if they bombard the legal dept we will have a Santa extravaganza next year. Which will piss off the Jehovas.

And so it goes.

It seems to me that if we just stick to teaching, we might be able to not offend anyone.
