An Opportunity to Promote Justice and Truth

April 17, 2010 at 3:22 am 3 comments

The teachers at my school have had a Halloween costume contest for the last two years. Usually the fifth grade and sixth grade teachers have been the most enthusiastic. They’ve painted masks, sewn shirts,  taped stripes, decorated the hallways and most importantly, trash talked. It’s always a lot of fun, but unfortunately two years ago, the wrong team won.

To make matters worse, last year, it was a tie!

As the third annual teacher costume contest approaches (Oct 28th), I thought I’d let a larger audience have their say. This blog only has a handful of readers, but I think they’re a good, honest bunch. This is your chance to right past wrongs. This is your chance to promote that justice and truth I mentioned earlier.

We’ll start with 2009. I don’t want to sway the polls here so I won’t tell you which team was which. I’ll just say that one team dressed as their college mascots and one team dressed as characters from Winnie the Pooh. You decide.

College Mascots

This was the hallway decoration:

This is a detail of it here:

These were the teachers’ costumes:

And they had the students dress up too:

Michigan Wolverines

GW Colonials

Brown Bears

Winnie the Pooh

 These are the teachers in the hallway that their students helped decorate:

    The Dream Team (8th grade) clearly should have won. I am a little disheartened that we were not even included. We dressed up as our students…imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?!?!?! Smackdown 2010, here we come!!!
