Homecoming Spirit Week Theme Day Ideas

Posted by

Homecoming Spirit Week is one of the most memorable parts of the school year, and theme days (or dress up days) are the most memorable parts of Spirit Week. Students and staff love dressing up to show their school spirit and get pumped for the big game and dance. There are lots of fun ideas for Spirit Week theme days. Here are just a few to get you started.

Decade Day
Choose a decade and encourage students and staff to have a blast from the past by dressing in the styles of that time period. Here are some ideas for each decade:

  • 1950s: poodle skirts and leather jackets
  • 1960s: peace signs and tie-dye
  • 1970s: bell bottoms and leisure suits
  • 1980s: hair bows, pinned jeans, and everything neonandersonsprom_spiritweek

Celebrity Day
Have students and staff dress like their favorite celebrity for this Spirit Week day. You’ll find everyone from movie and TV stars to sports figures to musicians in the mix.

Favorite Character Day
Students and staff will love to become their favorite literary or movie character for a day.

Pajama Day
Allow students and staff to wear their school-appropriate jammies, robes, and slippers to school. They’ll appreciate the extra few minutes of sleep they’ll get because they don’t have to get dressed.

College Day
Let students and staff show their college spirit by wearing apparel from their favorite school, whether its their alma mater (staff), or a school they dream of attending (students).
