All through my elementary career, I have had parties at all major holidays. Since then most have been cancelled, leaving children to 2 parties a year. With Halloween coming up, aka the most exciting party that I had in elementary school, and the schools without a party, I decided to write about it. The students are not only not allowed to have a party but they are not allowed to wear their costumes to school. When I was in school, we had a parade and party full of games, candy and fun. Now students are not allowed to have a parade or bring in candy which cuts out on the fun. Someone I know said that there teacher gives them candy but are not allowed to tell anyone or they will not be able to get any anymore. I just think this is ridiculous and that the kids should be able to have fun and enjoy a fun afternoon after a week full of classwork and tests. They deserve a reward after doing all the work. Just a thought.
