One small slip of the tongue with no lasting consequences but still the Principal needs to be brought into it.
That teacher shortage is starting to make sense.
It's very very important BB, that teachers and principals are exceptionally clear on the matter of the place of Santa in the curriculum, especially with regards to children who are probably only playing along because their parents issue threats of 'if you don't believe you don't receive'.
It is very important to keep up appearances about a matter that the principal, the teachers, the parents and it seems the students ALL know to be untrue lest the mere utterance of the truth strip all the joy and happiness from receiving consumer items carefully circled in a glossy toy catalogue months earlier.
I am sure the principal would be utterly delighted to be given the opportunity to dress down a teachers aide over a matter of such VITAL importance to a child's emotional and spiritual well being. What else are those school principals there for anyway?
