First Day of School Free Printable Signs

UPDATE: We now have 2016-2017 First Day of School Prints in our Etsy shop! It comes with all grade levels ready to print! Β Grab yours here: First Day of SchoolΒ Signs

Last year, these First Day of School Free printable signs were a huge hit and I have had a ton of requests for the new school year version! Welcome the 2014-2015 school year and snap a picture of your kid(s) on their first day! I am excited to add a few new ones this year like “First day of Junior High”, “First day of High School” (if your high schoolers will still let you snap a picture of them on their first day!) and “First day of School!” for families to get a picture together with all of the kiddos.

Download the printables by clicking the appropriate link for the grade level you need below.


Tips for printing:

Tips for printing printables- www.classyclutter.net

1. Make sure you printing Landscape (wide), not Portrait(tall).

2. Select Scale to Fit (or similar setting on your computer) and make sure you can print the entire image. These are high resolution printables so you can print them at pretty much any size so make sure you scale to fit the paper you are printing on. I like to use “Print Entire Image” then trim it down if I need to after it prints.

3, Print on heavy cardstock or mount your printed paper on something sturdy so the kiddos don’t bend it all up during your First Day of School photoshoot!


**UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the high volume of requests, I am unable to personalize these printables and/or email individual .jpg files. I have added all of the images (HERE) so you can save them to your computer and print if the .pdf download isn’t working for you! Hope that helps!!!

    I am a high school principal and we have some fun as kids of into the building on the first day with pictures. I would love to get a sign just like these that says, MY LAST FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. If I could get a template I would love it because we could have fun with CLASS OF 2015, 2016, 2017. & 2018. I will give you the credit or pay a fee to have someone make them for us. These are great and we will share pics. Thanks is you can help!

    Hi – Love your signs! I’m wondering if the signs are editable? In Canada, Kindergarten is 2 years and designated by Junior Kindergarten and Senior Kindergarten.

      Hi Tara!

      These ones are not editable but you could download it and add the word Junior or Senior to the printable using Picmonkey.com. It’s free and has similar fonts to the ones on these signs!

    These signs are great! I used them last year and came back this year to use them again…. Since I’m pretty OCD I wanted to use these same ones every year that my kids grow… Will you be doing this every year for the next 18 years? LOL
    If not… Is there a way you can make these templates with out the year and then we can just save them and add the year for each grade as it comes about??? πŸ™‚

    I know this may be weird haha but I am starting nursing school this month along with my daughter starting kindergarten and my son starting preschool so I was kind of thinking of taking a picture with a sign too so at the end of the year I can do a little “newsletter” for my family and include those. Any way you can make up a sign that says first day of Nursing school? Haha I know totally cheesy but just thought I would ask. Totally okay if you can’t!
