How do you get people excited about your school? Get some gear, put it on and walk around the school! As we prepare for our annual Olympic Day and Fun Day activities, we made sure to drum up excitement after 2 weeks of state testing. It was time that everyone got back to smiling, and to the real work of creating a world-class school!
This year we ordered visors as an attempt to keep our eyes shaded and school spirit flowing. Something as simple as a visor, new t-shirt or any other spirit wear can assist in developing a “brand” for your school. In order to sell them, I walked around the school and took selfies with the first to buy the visors…
Here are some of the pictures from the day
Then, as we were separating the Olympic Day and Fun Day shirts, I got two volunteers to model the new gear. We walked around the school and they posed for pictures in the various events they will compete in on Friday! I took those pictures and a few minutes later I had them on the School Blog for all to see… This only took a few minutes, and using the technology available to everyone (smart phones and free blog sites) viola… Just a few visors, shirts, selfies and spirit ….What a great school!
