Early Boo

October 29, 2010


We had our Halloween extravaganza on Thursday at school. For some reason when they planned the school calendar the faculty voted for no school Friday or Monday. After all Halloween is Sunday, don’t they want to hear about how much candy and how late kids stayed up on Monday????? Sometimes I wonder, you know? Do they understand how much WE want them out of the house after the late night and sugar rush ? geeze.

Remember this… I toned it down a bit for school


One of the sweetest things about our school is that your costume for Halloween at school   must fit  within the  genre of you grades curriculum. Thus for my girls the choices were:  First grade – folk tales, fairy tales, letters and  numbers, math processes, Fourth grade – Norse mythology, fractions, California geography, mapping, man and animal,   Seventh grade – World Exploration, the Renaissance and Reformation, the Age of Discovery, and pre algebra/algebra. My sweet kindies who I get to hang out with are princes, princesses,pirates and fairies  fairytale creatures, lords, ladies, kings, queens and such.  The wonder of it all is the parent and student creativity and willing participation to honor the costume requests.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel will you look at the camera!!!! Your mother wants more than your hair.

Ok,  she lost her hair.

Note my friend-girls in the back, taking photos with a non-getto camera and giving me grief. I love my friend-girls.

Galileo  was there along with his ( or her) solar system.

Regional maps in case you’re lost. They’re lost, but Nevada now has superb coastal properties.

And should you find yourself in 7th grade, not want to wear a costume but want to wear a costume ( such is the mind twist of a 7th grader) you could try and be a Stanford student, not for the school, but the flip-flops you  believe college students wear and you want to wear to school today.
