  1. Themed Dress Up Days spirit week ideas school dress up day

It’s not spirit week without themed dress up days for the whole school to get involved. Some of the most popular themes include wacky and tacky, celebrity, decades (the 60s, 70s, 80s) and twin day. Add interest to dress up days with something different such as College Day, where students dress up in their favorite college gear to represent their favorite team and to raise awareness of higher education. Another great dress up idea is a charity themed day where students choose a charity to advocate and dress up in honor of. Students can then donate, or collect donations for their charity. We also offer fundraiser online stores where students and staff can sell custom apparel online and keep the profit to donate to the charity of their choosing!
