Why not infuse these normally non-school-related events into your high school where budding adolescents spend the majority of their time? This way students’ safety can be monitored, while you simultaneously nurture school pride and provide incentives for high school students.

Ideas for Fun High School Events

How can faculty and staff nurture student leadership while communicating the importance of building community? Here is a list of safe, adaptable, and for your school. Of course, there are more you can think of too! 

1. Bonfire 

Celebrate school spirit by holding a bonfire. Students often host their own bonfires in secluded areas that usually are notorious for an array of negative social implications and crippling dynamics. 

However, if schools host them, it is more likely to have a positive outcome. With all of the famous bonfire trimmings – smores, music, food, dancing, stories, drinks, and games – students can enjoy this, normally esoteric, school event in a fun and safe environment amongst their peers. 

2. Karaoke Night 

Hire a great DJ with the equipment or allow students who are great with technology to host a karaoke night. This is easier than it may seem. 

Even on a low budget, schools can utilize YouTube and other online resources to make this happen without hiring someone with the traditional karaoke setup. Make it fun with virtual prizes for best singer, worst singer, and other fun awards. 

3. Music Fest 

Music touches the soul of everyone who it impacts. Why not hold an audition for the most ambitious and talented students in your school to be in a musical, variety or a star-studded talent show?

This could consist of singles, duos, poets, and band acts. Students can do cover songs or originals. At the end, you can have students or a panel of judges vote on the winner or just enjoy the talents of the artists. 

4. Amazing Race 

Teams of 2 or 3 go on a scavenger hunt around the local community! The last team to each checkpoint is out. Just like the famous show, students can win a prize. This involves both student and faculty innovation. 

5. Game Week 

Each student club plans a fun activity for each day of the week.

You can even consider video games as well. Who doesn’t want to be deemed the King of Fortnite? 

6. Blood Drive 

Host a blood drive to help save lives. This benefits your local community health organizations as well as cultivates generosity and selflessness amongst students. Local Red Cross offices are always looking for places to host blood drives. 

7. “Let's Make A Difference Week" 

Let’s get out of the classroom and put some of this service-learning to work with a student-led initiative that highlights different community service projects locally. Students can even take time to have meetings that enable them to brainstorm and then execute. They would then merge and interweave their ideas into ta collaborative service project. 

8. Stairway Messages 

Use each step as a location to place a few words of the message that you want to get across. This can be educational material, current events, politics, pop culture, and school news. Students are more attracted to new and different ways of communicating information to one another. Students will read the full or partial messages as they go up and down the stairs. 

9. Fake The Funk 

This is a lip-sync event where students choose their favorite songs from their favorite artists and perform them. Encourage students to pull out all of their creativity going as far as dressing like the artist they will be portraying. Think of the Lipsync Battle show.

10. Lost and Found Fashion Show 

Lost property an issue at your school? Eliminate the problem of lost and found items by hosting a fashion show with people wearing lost clothes. Hold an auction afterward for the unclaimed items or donate them to a local charity.

11. Wild ‘N Out High School Edition 

The famous improv show that airs on TV is a fun favorite for everyone. There are so many segments that range from intermediate to advanced for every student who feels brave enough to showcase their improv skills. 

A few easy, friendly, and fun segments to research and try are: 

12. Game-Based Simulation Learning 

This one is all about education! There are numerous apps that simulate real-life scenarios. From The Sims to Mock-Trading apps, students can get hands-on experience so they aren’t just learning the material but actually using it through game-based simulation learning. 

Teachers and students recognize that gaming can offer many technical options for language independence and real-life challenges based on skill levels. 

The basic principle behind game-based simulation learning is to promote motivation by fun, which leads to happiness. Why not make it a school-wide event every semester? 

13. Holiday-Themed Classroom Carousel

This could be a carousel of events all happening at once during the holiday season. Each classroom sets up its own decoration, and you walk around to visit each.

You could do Fall Harvest, Haunted House, Polar Bear Express, and New Years' themed room. Each room can have snacks and activities to complement the entire experience. 

Why Fun School Events Matter

High school events are just one way to bring the fun. These can be infused into the classroom rewards structure as a part of the day-to-day learning experience as well. Teachers consistently find ways to take a little and make it a lot! 

With these event ideas, you are finding new ways to engage and reach students. Most importantly, you are providing a space where students are being challenged all while nurturing their social and educational growth. Worried about the logistics of a rewards based event? You can also consider running a rewards program that follows PBIS best practices through a PBIS Store.

It’s not really the days we recall that spark pleasant nostalgia; it’s the moments shared that give those days their significance. High school years should be full of those memorable moments. There are undoubtedly many events that take place throughout one’s high school experience.

focuses on building community through transformative learning experiences that translate into tangible academic growth!

It’s not really the days we recall that spark pleasant nostalgia; it’s the moments shared that give those days their significance. High school years should be full of those memorable moments. There are undoubtedly many events that take place throughout one’s high school experience.

Why not infuse these normally non-school-related events into your high school where budding adolescents spend the majority of their time? This way students’ safety can be monitored, while you simultaneously nurture school pride and provide incentives for high school students.

Ideas for Fun High School Events

How can faculty and staff nurture student leadership while communicating the importance of building community? Here is a list of safe, adaptable, and for your school. Of course, there are more you can think of too! 

1. Bonfire 

Celebrate school spirit by holding a bonfire. Students often host their own bonfires in secluded areas that usually are notorious for an array of negative social implications and crippling dynamics. 

However, if schools host them, it is more likely to have a positive outcome. With all of the famous bonfire trimmings – smores, music, food, dancing, stories, drinks, and games – students can enjoy this, normally esoteric, school event in a fun and safe environment amongst their peers. 

2. Karaoke Night 

Hire a great DJ with the equipment or allow students who are great with technology to host a karaoke night. This is easier than it may seem. 

Even on a low budget, schools can utilize YouTube and other online resources to make this happen without hiring someone with the traditional karaoke setup. Make it fun with virtual prizes for best singer, worst singer, and other fun awards. 

3. Music Fest 

Music touches the soul of everyone who it impacts. Why not hold an audition for the most ambitious and talented students in your school to be in a musical, variety or a star-studded talent show?

This could consist of singles, duos, poets, and band acts. Students can do cover songs or originals. At the end, you can have students or a panel of judges vote on the winner or just enjoy the talents of the artists. 

4. Amazing Race 

Teams of 2 or 3 go on a scavenger hunt around the local community! The last team to each checkpoint is out. Just like the famous show, students can win a prize. This involves both student and faculty innovation. 

5. Game Week 

Each student club plans a fun activity for each day of the week.

  • The recycling club hosts a sculpture competition from recycled materials.
  • The dance team creates choreography for the school TikTok.
  • The international club brings games from different countries - like Dalgona.

You can even consider video games as well. Who doesn’t want to be deemed the King of Fortnite? 

6. Blood Drive 

Host a blood drive to help save lives. This benefits your local community health organizations as well as cultivates generosity and selflessness amongst students. Local Red Cross offices are always looking for places to host blood drives. 

7. “Let's Make A Difference Week" 

Let’s get out of the classroom and put some of this service-learning to work with a student-led initiative that highlights different community service projects locally. Students can even take time to have meetings that enable them to brainstorm and then execute. They would then merge and interweave their ideas into ta collaborative service project. 

8. Stairway Messages 

Use each step as a location to place a few words of the message that you want to get across. This can be educational material, current events, politics, pop culture, and school news. Students are more attracted to new and different ways of communicating information to one another. Students will read the full or partial messages as they go up and down the stairs. 

9. Fake The Funk 

This is a lip-sync event where students choose their favorite songs from their favorite artists and perform them. Encourage students to pull out all of their creativity going as far as dressing like the artist they will be portraying. Think of the Lipsync Battle show.

10. Lost and Found Fashion Show 

Lost property an issue at your school? Eliminate the problem of lost and found items by hosting a fashion show with people wearing lost clothes. Hold an auction afterward for the unclaimed items or donate them to a local charity.

11. Wild ‘N Out High School Edition 

The famous improv show that airs on TV is a fun favorite for everyone. There are so many segments that range from intermediate to advanced for every student who feels brave enough to showcase their improv skills. 

A few easy, friendly, and fun segments to research and try are: 

  • Kick ‘em Out The Classroom
  • And The Award Goes To
  • Pick Up And Drop It
  • Before And After
  • 60 Second Sequel 

12. Game-Based Simulation Learning 

This one is all about education! There are numerous apps that simulate real-life scenarios. From The Sims to Mock-Trading apps, students can get hands-on experience so they aren’t just learning the material but actually using it through game-based simulation learning. 

Teachers and students recognize that gaming can offer many technical options for language independence and real-life challenges based on skill levels. 

The basic principle behind game-based simulation learning is to promote motivation by fun, which leads to happiness. Why not make it a school-wide event every semester? 

13. Holiday-Themed Classroom Carousel

This could be a carousel of events all happening at once during the holiday season. Each classroom sets up its own decoration, and you walk around to visit each.

Why Fun School Events Matter

High school events are just one way to bring the fun. These can be infused into the classroom rewards structure as a part of the day-to-day learning experience as well. Teachers consistently find ways to take a little and make it a lot! 

With these event ideas, you are finding new ways to engage and reach students. Most importantly, you are providing a space where students are being challenged all while nurturing their social and educational growth. Worried about the logistics of a rewards based event? You can also consider running a rewards program that follows PBIS best practices through a PBIS Store.
