Watchwoman: These school officials aren’t being responsible, they are being over-bearing little dictators who can do whatever it is they want to, so they do it!  It makes one feel sooooooooo powerful, doesn’t it, Superintendent Grinch?  Does he honestly think that not allowing Christmas cookies in his school is going to make one child get skinny or one parent become responsible for making certain their child doesn’t get fat?  They are idiots, not adults!  What a bunch of Grinch-like crackpots!  And you, good parents, keep letting them raise your taxes every year to pay these power-mongering fools to take charge of teaching your children!  Get them out of public government schools of crazy politically correct  indoctrination and brainwashing!  Don’t let your children become the same kind of fools that are teaching them this nonsense!  ▬  Donna Calvin

Westford Students Told To Leave The Christmas Cookies At Home


Here's a picture of the evil Christmas cookies, look but don't eat!

WESTFORD (CBS) – Westford school officials are getting tough on classroom holiday parties.

They’re banning sugary snacks and sweetened beverages from the celebrations this year.

Students are being told to leave the Christmas cookies, cakes, candy bars, and soda at home and to bring fruits, unsweetened juices, popcorn and raisins instead.

Superintendent Everett Olsen says the ban on holiday sweets has nothing to do with being politically correct, rather, his motive is simply promoting a healthy lifestyle.
