Principal's Message - October 22, 2021

​​
Fall is in the air, hopefully this wet weekend doesn't turn into our first snow fall. If you use winter tires, it might be time to get them on the car! This leads us to a Halloween conversation. For most of our families this will involve our students dressing up and going door to door collecting candy. Here are some dinner conversation topics for the week leading up to the big event;
Why do people say “trick or treat"?
Favourite Halloween candy?
Favourite costume ever?
What were the first Jack O'Lanterns made of?
And you can weave in some of the more serious topics such as;
Traffic safety
General safety in the community
Behaviour in the community (sometimes we forget ourselves when we are in a larger group).
Cultural appropriation and Halloween Costumes.
If you are tackling the issue of cultural appropriation versus appreciation here are a few links to articles to help you out.

A parents' guide to cultural appropriation: an expert breaks down kids' Halloween costumes
At Marshall Springs we will be celebrating Halloween on Friday, October 29th. While we cannot do some of our traditional favourites such as a dance, or a haunted room, we will have classroom activities and students are welcome to dress up. My favourite is the pumpkin elastic challenge in math classes. Just a reminder that you still have to wear your cloth mask under your costume. We still have Covid protocols in place.  Also a reminder that we do not bring plastic or replica weapons to school, everyone should feel safe at school, even at Halloween.
Have a great weekend everyone. We look forward to seeing the students again on Monday morning!
