We Got Spirit! How About You?


What are Spirit Sticks?

Spirit Sticks® are small custom-embroidered patches that students can earn, collect, and display on their Ring—which is provided to each student at Hoosac Valley Middle and High School.

Spirit Sticks® promote school spirit and participation by providing meaningful extrinsic rewards with lasting value beyond the school year.

Spirit Sticks can be earned or bought. However, sticks that are used for rewards can not be purchased—only earned. They may be earned for good work in the classroom, such as improvement in math, reading, or spelling, memorization assignments, as well as acts of service and kindness.

Other Spirit Sticks are just for fun! They are available for sale throughout the year during special events. They are sold for $1.

How can parents get involved?

  • Parents can help their students get their ring attached to their backpacks.
  • Parents can remind their children that all of the teachers and staff at Hoosac Valley Middle and Elementary School have spirit sticks to reward and award a student for good behavior and a job well done.

Every student at HVES and HVMS will be going home with a ring and Hoosac Valley Spirit Stick® the 1st week of school.  The Hoosac Valley Middle School PTG will have sticks on sale at meet the teacher night and the Back to School Dance.
