Save Jimtown Tradition!!

23 Signatures Goal: 100

The following petition serves as a formal request by Jimtown parents to the school administration to save a very important and memorable event in the lives of our children -- the annual Halloween party. With consolidiation of the elementary schools, it is understandable that some changes will need to be made. And most everyone understands that the changes are intended to improve or maintain the quality of education and school careers for our children. However, the unintended circumstances of some of these choices diminishes the uniqueness of traditions developed, maintained, and loved by generations of children and parents. Any school can educate -- Jimtown offers, or at least has in the past offered more than a traditional education. It can be seen by the pride and fond memories of many children and adults who have attended Jimtown. Many parents and families have moved into, or back to, Jimtown because of the small school benefits, traditions, and education. With this being said, it is understood that this 2010 school year, the traditional Halloween party will no longer take place as it has in the past and will now just be a generic "Harvest Party". The opportunities for children to work with their parents to create their costumes and parade the halls will no longer be offered to Jimtown children. Right now it is only the Halloween party, next it will be the Christmas party which will become a nameless, politically correct activity as so many other schools have done. Save what makes Jimtown great, save the traditions! WE DO NOT WANT THE HALLOWEEN PARTY CHANGED! Let your voice be heard, let the school know that you care and the small things matter at Jimtown! GO JIMMIES!!! Please pass this on if you have as much passion for Jimtown as we do. Thank you.
