Spirit week at an Elementary School

Fun! but, a lot of time lost.

This week was spirit week. Student’s were able to participate in wacky hair day, wacky tacky day, spirit day, and PJ Friday. We also had events for them to attend: The spelling bee and the pep rally.  I know this is a great way to get students excited about going to school, but for me I lost 5 classes this week!  And many students missed in other classes to get skits together.  I am glad we can build excitement for students, but I am torn on how  it should be done.  Missing classes only makes students fall behind.  I now have to get the students caught up and hope they learn it quick!
