Community Spirit Week Activities

The Ballston Spa Central School District and the local community will combine efforts once again to celebrate school and community pride during the district’s annual Community Spirit Week on October 7 - 12, 2019. During the weeklong celebration, the High School students will hold a powder puff football game on Monday at 7 pm and a new Homecoming Street Fair (replacing the former community parade) on Friday afternoon from 4-6:30 pm before the Homecoming football game vs. Scotia High School at 7 pm. The BSHS Homecoming dance for current High School students is scheduled for Saturday night.

Students will celebrate Spirit Week 2019 with various themes and activities each day. Class T-shirt Day is being held on Monday, followed by Tourist Tuesday, We the People (Red, White and Blue Day) on Wednesday, Color Wars on Thursday and finishing with Purple & Gold School Spirit Day on Friday.  Ballston Spa High School clubs will also participate in the annual painting of windows at the Ballston Spa High/Middle School complex with purple and gold spirit week themes. Students in the Middle School and elementary schools will also be participating in various events throughout the week. Please visit the school websites for the latest plans.

Organizations from throughout the area and members of various school groups were invited to participate in the new Community Street Fair which will include student led activities, games, food and fun offered by the student clubs and organizations from throughout the district. Activities include a Rock Climbing Wall, Inflatable Obstacle Course, Dunk Tank, Swing Dancing, Photo Selfie Station, and a variety of fun games. The entire Ballston Spa school community is invited and encouraged to attend the Street Fair and support the students as we join together and celebrate Scottie Pride.
