This has to be good :) 

Halloween and Valentine’s Day have been canceled for elementary-school students in a Michigan district over concerns about being “inclusive” and “equitable.”

East Lansing Public Schools informed parents of the decision to cancel the two holidays this week, the Lansing State Journal reports.

The celebrations were dropped because of concerns over hurt feelings by kids in families who don’t want them to participate, the district’s elementary-school principals said in a joint letter to parents.

“Each year, along with the fun of Halloween parties and parades, we also have students whose families do not celebrate or feel comfortable with their children participating in Halloween festivities,” the principals wrote.

“We have young children who become overwhelmed and sometimes frightened of the costumes and others who come to school with no costume at all.”

Officials also added that it was difficult for students to remain concentrated on classwork amid Halloween celebrations.

As for Valentine’s Day, the principals said some families and students “do not feel comfortable with the idea of boys and girls exchanging valentines or participating in a celebration that focuses on ‘love.’

“While some students bring valentines to exchange, others do not,” the principals wrote.

“In our upper elementary classrooms, the exchange of valentines sometimes leads to classroom drama and teasing.”

Assistant Superintendent Glenn Mitcham said Halloween and Valentine’s Day could still be incorporated into the curriculum – they just won’t be celebrated going forward.

As an example, he said classes could measure a pumpkin to learn about its circumference.

“We’re striving hard at East Lansing Public Schools to be a district that is equitable and inclusive for all families,” the principals wrote.

The news comes just days after a Seattle elementary school announced it had canceled its annual Halloween parade this year – because it “marginalizes students of color who do not celebrate the holiday.”

Some Jehovah’s Witnesses, evangelical Christians and Muslims are among those who do not celebrate Halloween.

The decision to cancel the Pumpkin Parade at Benjamin Franklin Day Elementary School was made by the Racial Equity Team.

Well I think that is one piece of good news.

Halloween and Valentine’s Day have been canceled for elementary-school students in a Michigan district over concerns about being “inclusive” and “equitable.”

Technically yes, but to the aware, this is just a front, it is good at the surface, but the deep aspect of this results in the cancelation or barring of other things, at times, such things being unknown to most people, i.e. banning of specific Scripture because to some it is "considered "offensive". Also the acceptance of brazen things, i.e. legitimate CSA-sque teachings, CRT, etc. Which causes a rift between even that of the students. There are students who do not partake in said pagan activities, however, they are at times unfazed and ignore them vs those who are for them, likewise, with their parents, who will no doubt fight to make change of the situation.

At times, the banning of festivities or activities, even pagan ones, can indirectly effect others. Evidently, when stuff like this, especially Leftism and The Cult of the Woke gets involved more, that can put various challenges in front of the student as well as the parents, for the last bit, Racial Equity Team, was one red flag here, granted of how often such is spun in the general Education system from Pre-K to College/University. The very reasons why Schools, mainly in the United States are often called Indoctrination Camps by Truthers, mainly due to what is often found out to be taught in the schools and or who holds office their, their history and or disorders, etc.

At the same time we have to be careful, indeed paganism even idolatry is bad in this sense, but it will cause rifts in the district, mainly if more and more parents are involved, even more now due to the situation with Higher Education, at the same time, stuff like this will act like that of a Trojan Horse to start chipping away, or even resurrecting things that can effect a child's way of thinking, even faith, if need be.

That being said, there has already been a waged war from 2014 to present day in the Realm of Higher Education and Academics. In my case, one of the chosen I've mentioned, Solider of God, was hyper-focused on the situation with the Higher Education system around the world, more more specifically, the US. And like him, a lot of people have a spotlight on the Higher Education system, me included, as of recent, people tried to get me and a few others canceled for the inclusive situation that led to a big problem in a Loudon County School District.

The mantra "We are coming for your Children" is a legitimate threat, of which all of us should be very vigilant, in this sense.

As predicted - https://www.today.com/news/california-teacher-accused-mocking-native-americans-placed-leave-t235477

Although they will say to you she was mocking Native Americans, however, the MSM or anything that is semi leaning Left pushes the narrative vs those who know fact and truth.

Like I said, stuff of this level will indirectly effect something else, then you have the situation of teenaged students dancing and performing sexual like acts to teachers. The Left defended such acts, yet, would ban a Bible verse...

And here we go again, as predicted. Those who are aware knows the system and how it works, therefore are vigilante. Those who do not, will not see how such matters can result an indirect response.

I mean, from what I have already been saying for a while now, should have been obvious.

That being said, The Cult of Wokeism and the Left (The Paradigm in general) is problematic and the unaware can easily fall into their territory, be it in person or on the internet.

Would have been nice having sort of this frame of mind 40 years ago. It sucked having to sit in the hall all day while the kids did their holiday stuff, then getting beaten up afterwards for telling the kids Jehovah was going to kill them for celebrating holidays.

If ones culture celebrates holidays, then all cultures holidays would have to be celebrated which would make chaos in the classroom. So I say keep all holiday celebrations out of the school ciriculum, kids are there to learn, not party.

The frame of mind is what is damaging society. It gives more power to those with an Agenda; hence the direct and indirect remark. 

If you are familiar with Ancient Bible times, you should know God's view on certain practices. The Golden Calf comes to mind, as is the situation with Korah.

That is not how it works. If you haven't been in school for the last 30 days, some children at times opt out, or take the day of. Islanders, for example, majority do not celebrate Halloween because of Black Magic and or anything pertaining to it, they do not celebrate Christmas either because of the origins, i.e. Papa Nouvel.

Outside of the spectrum, if you take out Christianity or Islam, even some parents who are not of a religious faith will opt out there children, or the children will do it themselves.

The thing is in regards to what @Patiently waiting for Truth stated derives from what the Left Leaners are doing. So when an action is taken, they can abuse it to indirectly effect something else, so for example, speaking about some of the things Jesus mentioned, what is written or what he said can effectively be banned.

That being said, now they are pushing that Jesus is Non-Binary, meaning people whose gender identity doesn't sit comfortably with 'man' or 'woman'. That is problematic. That will be interjected in the higher education system, likewise with the problems of CRT.

Indirect problems will come forth from it.

When you give those a piece of power and they seed their mantra over time, it will result in stuff like this. As we speak, various things are taking place in all institutions and communities, those who oppose, will later be a focused enemy.

There are other things taking place in regards to even that of children, but that will be a remark for another day.
