A letter from a 3rd grade teacher sent home to Pagan parents:

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, I write this letter in concern of your daughter,
Aradia Moon. Please don't take this the wrong way, however, although she is a
straight A student and a very bright child, she has some strange habits that
I feel we should address.
Every morning before class, she insists on walking around the classroom with
her pencil held in the air. She says she is "drawing down the moon." I told
her Art Class is in an hour and to please refrain from then to do any
And speaking of Art Class, whenever she draws a night sky, she insists on
drawling little circles around all the stars and people dancing on the ground.
And that brings up dancing, I had to stop her twice for taking off her
clothes during a game of Ring Around the Rosey! By the way, what does the term
Aradia has no problem with making friends. I always find her sitting outside
during recess with her friends sitting around her in a circle. She likes to
share her juice and cookies. It is nice how she wants no one to ever thirst
or hunger. However, when I walked over to see what they were doing, she jumped
up and told me to stop, pulled out a little plastic knife and started waving
it in front of me. I thought this was a bit dangerous, so I took her to the
Principal's Office. She explained to the Principal that she was "opening the
Circle" to let me in. She also said that her Mommy and Daddy always told her
not to play or run with an "athame" in her hand, that she could put someone's
eye out. I don't know what an "athame" is, but I am glad that she keeps it
As for stories, your daughter tends to make up some whoppers. Just yesterday
while I was talking sternly to Tommy Johnson and shaking my finger at him,
he started screaming and ran from the room. When I finally caught him, he told
me that Aradia told him and the rest of the class that the last time I shook
my finger at someone, they caught the chicken pox. I explained to him that
the Sally Jones incident was just a coincidence, and that things like that
don't really happen.
One of the strangest things that happened was when I asked the children to
bring in Halloween decorations for the classroom. Aradia brought in salt,
incense and her family album. I see she has quite a sense of humor. One of
Aradia's worst habits is that she is very argumentative. We were discussing what
the Golden Rule was (Do Unto others as you would have them Do Unto You), she
firmly disagreed with me and stated it was "Do As You Will, but Harm None" and
she will not stop saying "So Mote It Be" after she reads aloud in class. I
tried to correct her on these matters and she got very angry. She pointed her
finger at me and mumbled something under her breath.
In closing, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, I would like to set up a parent/teacher
conference with you sometime next week to discuss these matters. I would like to
see you sooner, but I have developed an irritating rash that I am quite
With Deep Concerns,
P.S. Blessed Be. I understand that this is a greeting or closing from your
country that your daughter informs me is polite and correct.
