On December 15, 2017, Herman Intermediate and AdVenture STEM had a Holiday Spirit Day. For this Spirit Day students would wear things that have to do with Christmas like: Santa hats, Santa, elves, ugly sweaters, and much more.

The school is able to do this by giving students motivation to come dressed up with a competition between classes. The school does the Spirit Days because it shows off how much spirit that the school has. The first Friday of each month has a Spirit Day, which you can wear sports jerseys.

Owen Scheid, a student at AdVenture STEM has said that, “Spirit Days are important because students are actually able to show school spirit”.  Another fun thing that Owen didn’t mention is teachers around campus want as much people to wear spirit clothes because you get spirit points. Spirit points are points you get when people wear spirit clothing and every teacher tries to get the most because at the end of the year you get a pizza party. Owen Scheid, also said, “The best way to show school spirit is by wearing clothes that are on topic for the type of Spirit Day”.

Staff Ms. Cross, said that, “ Spirit Day competitions are good because it allows students to be creative, and that it is really fun seeing what students come up with.” She also said, “I like the spirit points because I think it is fair to reward the most spirited class.”

Some of the future Spirit days will be: ‘Star wars Spirit Day’, ‘Freaky Friday’, ‘Throwback Thursday’, and Wednesdays we wear pink. Some of which will be apart of a Spirit week, which is like a Spirit Day but it is a different but similar theme for everyday of a week.

You can find out more about future Spirit Days at the Herman/AdVenture website or on schoolloop. Or you could visit this link: http://herman.schoolloop.com/search/search_results?d=x&search_term=spirit+days.
