I am on my school's student council. Does anyone have any new or out-of-the-ordinary things they do at their school? Any fundraising ideas? We have spirit weeks (class color day, cowgirl/cowboy day, movie character day, twin day, and school color day) and raffles sometimes but I just feel like we need some new ideas at our school.
spirit week, definitely halloween's coming up, so I guess you can do something about that, we used to have competitions for seniors VS juniors/sophomores/freshmen......in little competitive events like dance(group) ofcourse, sack race.....little things during the pep rallys......that always gets the rivalry heated......since most schools don't allow hats/caps you guys can have a hat/cap Day, in which ppl can wear whatever they desire..........we used to have autograph days 2 days any week, where ppl would wear white t-shirts and other ppl would write on their shirts with pink green or blue highlighters.........we also used to have Nerd days, pretty sure you can guess what that was about........hahaha......we also used to have pro/college sports day, on which we used to allow kids to wear any team any sport, basically reprezent your Pro/college Team.....
we used to have Fast-a-thon at our school as a fund raiser, where kids who weren't muslims(followers of Islam) would try fasting for an entire day(dusk till dawn) without food or water to understand their peers and respect them as fellow humans, and then we would get pledges from local businesses per non-muslim person fasting, and would have school funded food in the gym at dusk so everyone could eat.........together and understand more about the religion they themselves have been brought up to dislike......and so on and so forth, that was one of our very successful ones.........and then definitely you get the money to charity that provides food for the sick and the homeless/needy......but since Ramadan is almost over, i'd do it ASAP......and get some muslims involved in this, they'll be more than happy to assist you.......
i'm not sure if you guys have Entertainment Books available to you or not, when I was in high school you could sell those and make a bunch of money off of those.......ask a faculty member about that.
can't think of anything else right now, will elaborate when I remember
hope this helps........
I am the student council advisor at my school and last year we started to sell spirit chain links. Each link was .50 and at the end of the selling period we used the chains at our assembly, giving points to each grade level according to the length of the chain.
I’m one of the student council and what we doing now we are collections, tap pop from McDonald’s
If yah guys have some ideas please let me know (:
