First Day of School Printable Sign
Over the years, I have learned that when I take take my kid’s back to school photos, I need to snap at least one with their grade level and school year. Otherwise, over the years, I can’t remember what grade they were entering in each photo!
DOWNLOAD UPDATED FOR 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR!
You can make this as simple (just print out the download and your kids can hold up the sign!) or fancy (see my tips below to make a bunting) as you like!
- free banner printable (click the link at the bottom of the post)
- card stock
- scrap fabrics
- clothes pins
After gathering your supplies, make the signs takes no time at all.
- Cut a 3-foot piece of twine.
- Next use your take your scrap fabrics (I love the MOD fabrics) and cut strips approximately 1.5″x20″ and tie them on the twine.
- Print out your download onto card stock and cut a very shallow “v” in the bottom to make it look like a banner.
- Use the clothes pins to place the sign on the twine.
It’s that simple!

The kindergarten sign says 2014-2014, instead of 2014-2015.
Thanks for letting me know, Jill! I just uploaded the correct version and it’s ready for download!
How adorable is this?! I love it!

I love these! Could you add higher grades? I have a 11th grader and want to use this. I have preschooler and 8th grader and the oldest will be left out.
yes, please! I have an 11th graders too, an an homeschooling this year, so I’ll miss the bus photos. I’d love one for my junior!
Wendy-these pennants I made last year go through grade 12! https://www.moritzfinedesigns.com/2013/07/free-printable-first-day-of-school-picture-pennants/
Thank you so much for sharing these! I used your printable for last year as well and I absolutely love them! They are such a great idea and so cute. Thank you!
Thanks, Karen! Thanks for faithfully stopping by!
i love this first day of school sign. I am going to be a prek teacher this year and thought this would be so cute for them to hold.
I am having trouble finding the download button. Could you please help?
Glad this will work out for you, Christine! Just click on the blue text in the box below the last picture in the post!
I LOVE these, but the pdf is missing the word “grade”, can these be updated to look like the picture?
Thanks Heather! I can always count on you to make my first day of school pics look cute!
I Love see your kids with them on the Facebook pic every year!!
You made back to school signs last year that looked like it was written on a chalk board- Ive been using these for 1st and last day of school, do you still have them? I’d like to keep it consistent?
Lee-Ann- I have created a lot of back to school signs, but none of them have ever been on a chalkboard background. Could you be referring to the ones I featured in this post?
I have tried several times over a few hours to get these printables and it is not working for me. 🙁 I have received emails/downloads of some of your other projects but not these. My daughter’s first day of kindergarten is tomorrow. Is there anything I can do? I love this idea!
What am I doing wrong? Why can’t I get any of your downloads? I’ve signed up to your email list 3 times.
Love this pennant sign but you haven’t upadated with new school years in a few. I still print off the last one and “doctor it up” so I can use.
Any chance you can add this one back in? I use it every year on the first day of school with my 4th graders.
Thanks for all you share!
