Halloween has been officially cancelled at the Mitchell Elementary School in Needham, MA. Every year children at the school enjoy Halloween themed classroom parties and a school parade. However this is all about to change. Due to an occasional student that chooses to not participate or finds Halloween offensive, acknowledging the fun-filled children’s holiday is now banned.
Principal Greg Bayse said the school is cancelling its traditional Halloween celebrations for the purpose of “reducing exclusion among students”. According to the Principal, the staff claims, “ending the practice would promote inclusivity”. He goes on to say that banning Halloween “…is a positive change that will benefit our students and our community.”
We have also heard reports of other schools that have decided to follow suit. Do you remember enjoying Halloween when you were in school? Do your children enjoy Halloween? Should Halloween be banned in school for everyone to accommodate an occasional child that opts to not participate or has the world gone insane?

The Y3K Tutor In Your Home owner provides weekly tutoring for my middle-schooler who is bright but struggles with social pragmatics and rigidity, making public school a difficult learning environment. His creative and non-threatening approach is very effective in helping my son think critically about his assignments and his teachers’ expectations. In addition to developing his writing and language skills, he is also able to feed his insatiable appetite for complex math by expanding on the basic concepts covered in the school curriculum. He is an excellent academic tutor and is also very organized and dependable. I highly recommend him for a variety of learners and learning needs.
