School Wide Themes
School Wide Themes – Think Big!
School themes can be unique to your school. Every school and each classroom has something special about it that can be celebrated through creative approaches to school wide themes.
Whether it’s your school logo, school colors, sports accomplishments, academic achievements or another school event…
Your school deserves special recognition and themes are a great way to “umbrella” all these events under one hat.
Think about school clubs, school dances, your science projects and your debate teams… There are always opportunities to conduct ceremonies commemorating these events and why not make them memorable by including all these milestones in your school theme.
Theme presentations are a great opportunity to bring all of these activities and student participants together for the common purpose of making your school – the best school possible. Two important goals of themes are:
- Must be expansive enough to encompass current and future school activities
- Must appear responsive to strategies and goal setting objectives through classroom management initiatives
It can be exciting to promote school themes because they let you think BIG! Themes can be so much more than just an idea on a piece of paper. They can be real learning activities. A theme helps you create memories, reinforce purpose, mark special events and make promises about the future of student successes.
It is not a surprise that most schools have tight budgets so it’s important to be efficient when selecting and promoting your theme. All themes are “Ideas in Motion” so identify the creative talent in your school – then turn them lose.
Get Your Theme!
Sometimes a complicated theme idea can require extravagant expenditures which might be impractical. So choose carefully… You’ll want to be sure you have the required resources to present your theme effectively.
Whether your school is large or small… city or country… your themes must provide the biggest bang for your buck!
