Spirit week is a traditional part of Snowcoming celebrations for many schools. It’s celebrated with a different theme each day of the week ending with School Spirit Day on Friday.
This year why not try some fun new “days” and break free from the “same-old-same-old” spirit days of the past.
Spirit Week Ideas
Retro Spirit Day
Instead of a 60’s or 70’s day, throw a Retro Spirit Day. Students must dress in retro spirit gear, and represent the decade chosen.
Students dress like their favorite staff member, and staff members dress like students.
Salad Dressing Week
Choose a salad dressing for each day of the week, then dress accordingly.
- Thousand Island (Caribbean/Hawaiian)
- Ranch (Cowboy)
- Blue Cheese (Blue)
- Caesar (Togas and sandals)
- French (Berets and fashionable clothes)
- House Dressing (School Colors/School Spirit)
Duct Tape Day
Students must wear an outfit decorated with or made from duct tape.
Students wear completely recycled items. From hand-me-down clothes, to using ordinary garbage to make hats, purses, accessories, etc.
New Trend Day
Students are challenged to come up with a new fashion trend all their own, and dress accordingly. Who knows, they might start the next big craze.
Get the word out!
Announce your spirit week activities with a Spirit Week Banner! Have it printed with your daily events, or get one that can be re-used with the days of the week blank, then simply write in your events with a washable marker!
