First Day of School Printables

It’s almost Back to School time!

It’s hard to believe that the kids will be headed back to school soon, and that the First Day of School is almost here already! Summertime seems to get shorter and shorter each year! We still have a bit of Summer Break ahead of us, but our friends who attend year round schools are headed back in just over a week from now! 

A new school year means that it’s time to take that obligatory First Day of School photo, and we’ve got you covered with a cute set of free printable First Day of School signs for preschool through 12th grade!

For the 2023-24 school year, we’ve updated our printable First Day of School signs to include options for classic in-person school as well as homeschool. If you’re doing distance learning, virtual learning, independent study, or any other option, we have also included a set of blank signs that you can customize with your personalized learning method.

If you’re a professional procrastinator (like me! 😂) who always waits until the last minute to do things, no worries! We’ve got you! These adorable signs are the perfect last-minute photo prop for those first-day photos!

You can print these back to school signs just minutes before the kids head off to school and still manage to snap a few of those precious First Day of School pictures for posterity. Start your own first day of school tradition and use these same signs each year! (We post the updated free printable signs for the current year in early July)

One of my favorite things to do is look back at these photos each year and see how much my kids have grown! (It’s crazy how quickly they grow up!)

If you have chosen to homeschool for the 2023-2024 school year, we have special First Day of School signs just for you, too! We homeschooled for six years, so I know firsthand how challenging it can be to find homeschool-specific printables sometimes!

For the 2023 – 2024 school year, we’ve also included a fill-in-the-blank customizable sign option for students who may be continuing on with distance learning, hybrid learning, virtual learning, remote learning, independent study, etc. Or, use that space to fill in your school name, your teacher’s name, or even your child’s name!

Simply download the First Day signs, and then open the PDF file in Canva (or other photo editing software) to add your own custom text to the box at the bottom.

Note: the font that we used here is Nexa Rust Sans Black if you want to keep it looking consistent!

I love my HP Envy printer for printing out signs like this because it prints colors super smoothly and vividly (and it’s a steal of a deal if you don’t already have a color printer that you love!)! Plus, you can enroll in HP’s Instant Ink program – for a small monthly fee you will NEVER run out of ink again, AND it will show up automatically on your doorstep whenever you need it! It’s seriously one of my favorite things ever!

(Oh, and don’t worry, we’re ready with matching Printable Last Day of School Signs for the end of the year, too! We update them in April each year to be ready for the last day of school!)
