My kids have so many activities in school that require expensive kids costumes which I think is no longer necessary today. School officials should be sensitive nowadays on the current financial status of every parents. I believe they could still make their activities exciting and fun even if they do not wear expensive costumes. There are costumes that can be produced from many recyclable materials, I think it’s a good alternative to expensive costumes. We need to be more practical these days. Anyway, in the next parents-teachers meeting I will discuss this matter with them. I hope other parents have the same stand and they will voice out their sentiments as well.
