I didn't watch it, but I find the thought of suspending kids from school for something they (legally) did off campus to be a bit dumb......

By twilight the streets were empty, like people thought real vampires might be afoot. I assume it's still that way here for some reason, which is a bummer.

Which brings me to another question. I'm looking in the Circle C/Legend Oaks area...Do HOA's prevent you from decorating for Halloween? I know I see a ton of tacky yard balloons at Christmas everywhere, but some people don't extend the same freedom to decorating for a nonreligious holiday. Though tell me what R2D2 in a Santa hat has to do with Jesus.

Also, I can't find any threads that talk in any detail about the Middle Schools that feed into Bowie. Or Anderson for that matter. Most are 8-12 years old at this point so are probably irrelevant. Can anyone point me somewhere that might help? I'm just looking for discussion from parents, etc. about what they liked and didn't like about the schools (Bowie and Anderson, and their feeder middle schools).
Lots of little kids are trick or treating after dark. At waterline/deepwood there are like 1000 kids out after dark. Im not sure why you would assume it is like your experience everywhere when you have only lived in a few places.

Murchison is the only middle that feeds into anderson.

Bailey Middle School

Covington Middle School

Gorzycki Middle School

Small Middle School


There are a lot of threads on those schools. The city data search isnt always good so try a search like this in google. The site tag does a google search only on the URL and below.

I'm not assuming. I lived in the Circle C area for 2 years and in several other areas in Austin including the Jollyville area as a student at UT. I remember there being very few trick or treaters, and the few that I saw were out in early afternoon - combined with my own experiences of Halloween trick or treating being sucktacular when I was a kid growing up in Texas. I was merely pointing out that my experiences elsewhere were not the same as my experiences in Austin (i.e. better), with the caveat that I have been gone for 10 years. Hence my question about whether it was still the same.
