    Hello!
    I have recently been asked to help with student council and am looking for some fun spirit week ideas. We have PJ Day, Crazy Day, Hat Day, 50's day, and Blue/White Day (school colors) for one straight week. We are looking into going to one spirit day each month, and I am looking for some new ideas...anyone?

    backwards day ( clothes on backwards)--teach lessons out of order.

    sports day, (wear clothes of favorite sports teams)

    70's and 80's day, their parents will get into helping with that!

    charictor day ( favorite carictor from book or movie-- apropriatly chosen)

    give a hug day, let the one group be in charge of selling bags(about 5 each) of hershey hugs, with a little positive note attached, let another group deliver the "candy grams"--money could go to a charity or other needed item or party for the class that sells the most.

    We do a Teacher Switch Day one Friday afternoon near the end of school--the students come in from lunch recess to find a different teacher in their room.
