School Theme Days – The World at Large
Themes can also be used to build school spirit. It is common practice at all grade levels to have themed days that encourage special clothing to be worn, such as school logo shirts.
Traditional themed days have focused on encouraging team support. While this remains a critical skill, schools now have become much more involved in building child awareness of the world at a young age. They encourage civic duty and caring attitudes toward those less fortunate.
As a result, school themes have expanded beyond the single school spirit initiative and focus. Theme activitiess that focus on a particular day have grown to include many different topics.
- Protection of the environment
- Civil rights history
- Feeding the hungry
- Sister schools in foreign countries
- Safety awareness
- Respect for others
- Academic success
- Neighborhood day
- Multicultural awareness
- Health and hygiene
The list could go on indefinitely. A theme day can be held in a manner similar to traditional spirit days. There will be special bulletin boards, themed assemblies, announcements and themed civic projects included as part of the program.
These theme days can motivate students to become more involved in the world and their communities. In these days of handheld electronic toys stealing student focus, a theme day can play an important program role helping to build student awareness.
