Spirit Week Ideas for High School

Coming up with fun and creative ideas and themes for spirit week can be tricky for high school teachers and students. But, it is a useful tool for building school spirit and comradery. My best teacher friend and I have so much fun getting into the spirit! The students love it too! They will come back even when they don’t have us in class to see what we come up with each day. 

Check out some of our favorites below (with some cameos from our beloved interns). Also, you can find a free list of ideas at the bottom of the post!

My school has Colors’ Day in the spring as the alternative to Homecoming. One year for spirit week, to stay on brand with “Colors’ Day,’ each day of spirit week was to dress up as a color. It was great because it gave all students an opportunity to easily participate. And it gave Erica and I another opportunity to go all out!
