Exciting Stunts To Raise School Spirit

Oct 12, 2007
Sometimes the spirit of a school can do with some lifting. Any of the stunts below will do just that!

Have a competition in "RAISING THE SCHOOL SPIRIT" by using two or three "Balloons", "Thermometers" or "Rubber Plants." (Even a person under a sheet, or in a large box, carton, etc., or a small boy may come out of a box or barrel which is labeled "School Spirit"). Place one of these items on one side of the cheering section or auditorium and one on the other and perhaps, if possible, one in the middle.

Then the cheerleaders could take section by section . . . raising the balloon, thermometer, etc. higher and higher depending on the volume made by the section, and thus creating audience competition. However in this manner the balloons go only about three-fourths of the way up. Then the cheerleaders could show how solid teamwork and cooperation by all, in one gigantic cheer, smashes the balloon, thermometer, etc. to bits.

Could This Be You?
Arrange several rows of chairs to represent the stadium seats at a game. Then have the pep club members imitate the way a typical crowd acts at a game. A narrator could comment "Could This Be You?"

Then mimic the crowd doing such things as: have someone standing all the time blocking view of those behind; someone eating peanuts or pop corn continually, another walking back and forth thru the aisle to get a drink, hot dog, etc.; a couple of lovers interested in only themselves; a couple of girls chewing bubble gum as hard as possible lunch and sitting there doing nothing but eat. There is no end to the mimicking you can demonstrate. The narrator could conclude by saying DON'T LET THIS BE YOU. When you go to the game cheer for your team.

Little Girl Act
Put on a "Little Girl Act." The cheerleaders could dress as "Little Girls" in gingham dress and be eating giant lollipops and lead a yell.

Yell Competition
Have a competition in yelling by arranging the students so that the Seniors and Sophomores are yelling together and the Freshmen and Juniors yell together.

Have a "Siesta" after lunch. The old Mexican Custom could be labeled "Football Siesta." Then each day for approximately 30 minutes immediately after lunch a special bell could ring and all students would wander through the halls, on the campus, in the gym, etc. talking nothing but football. Various team members could be placed in all parts of the campus so the students could talk to them and cheer them.

The Ironman
At Jackson High, Ohio, a student was dressed as a robot to represent the school mascot, "Ironman." The game to be played was against the Wellston "Goldenrockets," so a rocket (can be made out of tin or aluminum foil) was made to represent their team. With a great deal of ceremony, the "Ironman" came on the stage and crushed the "Rocket."


At Piqua High, Ohio, poems were made about the team members. The poems, or short worded descriptions, would be read by a narrator and the students would be asked to guess them.

The $64,000 Question

The $64,000 Question T.V. program makes excellent background for a stunt. "Hal March," a few cheerleaders and an "isolation booth," could be set up easily. The various contestants of course would always wind up winning the $64,000 check if they guessed the winner of the game tomorrow.

Mock Basketball Game

Mock basketball game amuses the students. The girls could represent the players and clown up the game. Coaches and referees could wear outlandish costumes. One team could bribe the referee; the other perhaps stretch chicken wire over the basket. Quarters could be two minutes and the cheerleaders could ginger up the excitement.

Of course many other stunts could be tried to achieve the same result. However, these would all be a good start!
