School Spirit Day – Is Spirit Necessary?

On this special day students and staff will be wearing their best… and doing their best to promote school spirit.
There will likely be banners, pom poms and signs with your school colors brightly displayed throughout the school. Logos, cheers and school jackets will be treasured.
School spirit is contagious !
Not surprisingly, building spirit within the school spreads to your community and others enjoy showing their support.
Spirit adds an important ingredient to the mix – a sense that what your school does positively impacts students lives. This caring attitude draws the attention and support of families and neighborhoods.
School Spirit Day – Building Community
It can’t be a surprise that the building blocks of school spirit originate from many community sources. After all, former students probably still reside in the community and they haven’t forgotten the good times.
School spirit also represents the collective efforts of your school administration, faculty and students… and let’s not forget the families.
Families are your community at large. This spirit day draws many groups together in support of the student successes they envision. You may even have local media provide radio announcements and newspaper ads.
School spirit is all about tradition and the “electricity” felt when everyone is wearing or using school themed items.
- School rings and necklaces
- Notebooks with logos
- Theme songs
This day is actually often just one spirit event among many held throughout the school year. And this celebration often extended to include a spirit week, can be held on a separate day or in conjunction with another event such as a football game.
On spirit day, everyone connected with your school should be invited… so they can see for themselves the spirit level.
