Spirit Planning Timeline

4-5 Months Before

Hold a committee meeting to decide regular meeting times and talk about the bangs and bombs of last year's spirit week. Brainstorm new ideas to add to this year's agenda. List the best ideas and remember that variety is the key to everyone's involvement! Wanna repeat a popular event? Go for it - that's how traditions are started! Also, check out our Spirit Week Ideas for extra inspiration.

Make a master list of five or six highest ranked activities and themes. If you can handle more, great! But remember, although it is important to fill each day with spirited events, it is equally important not to get in over your head! Accept only the activities you know you can do well.

3 Months Before

Don't procrastinate! Reach a consensus and begin organizing the activities. Put each volunteer in charge of one day or event. They may recruit more volunteers, if needed.

1-2 Months Before

It's never too early to order! Some items take several weeks to be manufactured and shipped (especially anything with custom designs!) so don't put it off. We offer a huge variety of decorations, cheer and spirit essentials, and much more!

Get the word out! Design an advertising campaign for every event, including fliers, posters, and banners. Distribute flyers to all the students and hang the posters and banners in high-traffic areas of your school. Consider placing posters in local stores as well. Your events can never get too much publicity!

Spirit Week

After all the planning and decorating, the big week is finally here. Get pumped up for all the week's activities, wear that smile, and cheer your heart out!
