Re: “Buckman School Bans Halloween Costumes

@ The Showstopper. . . You just called 12 and 13 year old kids douche bags. It takes a big man to be able to put down children, good job buddy!

Not sure what exactly you are wondering about this town.... But I thought I'd take a minute to encourage you to go ahead and leave. We don't need people like you here anyway.

Meanwhile, as a Buckman parent I've seen a lot change over the last 8 years but I gotta say, I don't really care if the Halloween parties go by the wayside. Not all teachers let their students have a party and for the kids who's teacher doesn't have a party the entire day just sucks. My kids always needed help with their costumes in the afternoon, and its a difficult reason to skip out on work. I'd much rather leave work to volunteer in class, go on a field trip or attend Grandparent and Special Friends day.

This has caused so much negative attention for our school, which affects the teachers, administration and students. How many phone calls and emails are our admin staff having to field about this? How much time is being wasted over this?

I appreciate Mr. Anderson for other things he has brought to the school. Over the summer, he fought to keep our dance teacher at full-time - which to me is a HUGE success for the students.

Can't we take all this energy and effort being poured into Halloween parties and put it towards getting PE back? Or helping the SUN program find funding? Or forcing the school to offer healthier lunch options?
