Harumph. It's Halloween

Whomever decided it was a good idea to give our students candy during their 1st and 2nd period related arts classes deserves to be strung up by their toes.

Bouncing off the walls doesn't begin to describe it.

If you're going to give the little cherubs candy, give it to them 5 minutes before they leave so they can bounce off their own walls and drive their parents to drink.

Reason Number One why I hate Halloween.

We were so blessed at our school: Halloween was a teacher inservice day, so no kids and and no candy!

No school on Halloween here either. It's Nevada Day on the 31st so no candied up middle schooler for me...

Halloween and Valentine's are the two days of the year when I absolutely DO NOT miss being in the classroom - they are the two days that make administrating from the District Office actually feel worthwhile! [The rest of the time I miss the classroom like crazy... just not on these sugar high days!]

Ah, to get even with our colleagues. When I drop my students off for gym, I give the PE teacher a report on how my kids did in Language Arts. He agreed to stop giving me updates if I leave him alone. We like each other a lot more these days.

To me, the only thing worse than the day of Halloween, is the day AFTER Halloween, when they come to school sleep-deprived and on a sugar high while leaving candy wrappers all over my floor.

Thank goodness there was no day after Halloween this year. By the time Monday rolled around, they had gotten it all out of their systems.
