School Spirit Day

“I’ve got spirit.  Yes I do.  I’ve got spirit.  How about YOU.”

Children love singing and cheering, and rooting for their school.  Every March our school has a giant pep rally. We parade with pom-poms, sing our school song, holler chants, and wear school clothing.

It is so much fun!  “G-C-S Is-The-Best” is the children’s favorite chant. Isn’t spirit something we all need?  It fills us up. We feel good. School spirit gives us pride and unity.

It was a great day!

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    Nothing like school spirit!! Looks like a lot of fun. xo

  4. The school where I teach does this and it is so much fun. Each grade gets to scream and holler for the school and then our faculty gets to finish off. Sometimes our faculty can really get into it, so it can be very entertaining!!

    That’s such a good idea! We had a pep rally at the start of the year, but mid year would be a good pick me up:)

    I’m going to sing aloud that ‘I’ve got spirit’ chant whenever I’m feeling not-so-motivated. I might even pull out my pompoms and dance around the room! The photo of the kids is adorable. Lovely post, Jennie ❤
