It’s not just Halloween: Schools ban dances, tag, “unnecessary noise”

David MenziesMission Specialist

One of the first orders of business at a new elementary school in Winnipeg was to figure out how to alter Halloween so that it no longer resembles Halloween. This year, kids at Sage Creek School will celebrate with something called Tie and Scarf Day.


Because the principal was worried that horrific costumes worn by Grade 7 and 8 kids might scare some of the younger children, and we can’t have that as we continue building our Snowflake Nation.

And, it isn’t just Halloween:

There’s the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board that banned school dances for students in grades six to eight.

We had administrators at the Mercer County School District in Washington State that effectively banned the game of tag.

And a school in Sydney, Australia that banned unnecessary noise.

Gerry Fladager , Much easier to count the number of common sense rational people in education. And calling educators nuts is disparaging to Planters and squirrels .

Gerry Fladager; All the noisy ones. The sane ones sit meekly (or wisely) on the staff room couches with their mouths shut.

How about a “Vicars and Tarts” theme? Or dress as your favorite religious figure day. 2 ideas that are better right off the top of my head at 6:23 on a Sunday.

I agree Danancuso. We need a complete overhaul of our educational system .

What sane parent would ever allow their precious children to fall into the clutches of the apparatchiks running the Marxist robot factories, otherwise know as the public school system, today!?
