Principal Involvement in Spirit Nights
Well, someone who is exciting and supportive of your fundraising efforts should be there to represent the school and add some excitement and credibility to the event.
Most schools have amazing teachers, and although they have a lot going on, having teachers at spirit nights encourages relationships and can be fun as well. Have each class compete for the most attendees or the most money raised from the events, and you'll be amazed at how effective it is to involve the teachers in the event.
The challenge with spirit nights is just keeping the number of events that demand parental involvement to just the most important ones. In other words, limit your spirit nights so parents really want to be a part of it and are glad to come and proud that they supported the event.
So, make sure your events are exciting and make sure the principal shows their support. If an event is important enough for the principal to attend, it's important enough for the parents to as well.
Until next time.
