Parents of elementary school students: If you write a personal note to the teacher about the Feast of Tabernacles, you might consider letting your child's teacher know about holidays that you don't observe (Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter).
Many school districts no longer have holiday parties or religious observances in the schools. If your school still does, it can be helpful to notify the teacher that your child will not be participating. Include suggestions about what your child will do for that time period (examples include early pickup from school, visiting the library, etc.).
