Math = Love: Spirit Week

Spirit Week

Spirit Week is upon us.  One of my big tasks as Student Council Adviser is coordinating Spirit Week.

I was the type of student in high school who NEVER dressed up for Spirit Week.  I guess I just wasn't that spirited.  LOL

My Student Council kiddos get to pick the dress-up days for Spirit Week.  And, every time, it seems like half the student body HATES the days that were chosen.  This semester, I decided to take a slightly different approach.

Spirit Week Ballots

I had my StuCo kids make a list of days to choose from.  Then, we had the student body decide which four days they wanted to celebrate.  I reasoned that if students had a say in how they dressed up, they would complain less and participate more.

The Resulting Spirit Week
Of course, this did not work out perfectly.  Half of my student council members are currently mad at me because our Spirit Week turned out to be "too juvenile."  I'm trying to not let it bother me.  As my mom told me on the phone the other day, five years from now, these students will not remember any of the dress up days.

    1. Students wear different colors based on their current relationship status. Wearing red signifies that you are in a serious dating relationship. Wearing green sends the message that you are single and ready to mingle. If you are talking to someone but not yet in a relationship, you should wear yellow.

      We did it once last year, and some students get really into it. A lot of students, however, just decided to make sure that they didn't wear red, yellow, or green.
