Halloween can be a bit tricky for the middle school student and their teachers. Many of them are transitioning to a different set of expectations on so many levels. Now, to add insult to injury, they realize that this change includes NO MORE CLASSROOM HALLOWEEN PARTIES?? No Halloween parade around the school (in my little town it actually includes several blocks in the town),
