Smells like -- School Spirit?

Where will you find Pajama Day, Duct Tape Day, Prince/Princess Day, Crazy Outfit Day, and Spirit Day all in one week? Add a bonfire with an effigy of the upcoming football opponent, a big game complete with marching band show, and a Saturday night dance, and you guessed it.
Amigo's school is in the middle of Homecoming Week. He really enjoys the festivities. He skipped dressing up for pajama day, but today he's decked out in one of his dad's t-shirts proclaiming "I can fix anything: Where's the duct tape?" He'll borrow another t-shirt for Crazy Outfit Day on Thursday. It says "Stop Animal Testing!" and has a picture of the sweetest looking rabbit sitting in a desk taking a standardized test. For Prince/Princess Day, he's getting creative. He's going to wear a Milwaukee Brewers shirt. (Prince Fielder, first baseman, home run king, okay?)
The school plays theme music during passing time between classes. Yesterday they played "Bananas in pajamas." Tomorrow I predict Disney Princess tunes. Today? Well, I don't know, what would you play for Duct Tape Day? Something that would stick with you, no doubt. (snicker)
Happy Homecoming to all. Amigo sure loves it.

Our local school does this, the grandkids LOVE it! I think that PJ day is our 10-year-old's favorite, though she did enjoy the hippie day also - check it out here!
