Choose your favorite First Day of School Signs for your back to school photos. We’ve created these free printables for all of the grades, from the First Day of Preschool, First Day of Kindergarten, and on up through the Twelfth Grade so you can get great pictures of all of the kids!
We started using these first day of school signs so that it would be easy to see exactly which year and grade the kids were in. The first few years of school, we just took photos of the kids in front of their school or outside of the house. But then, looking back we realized we couldn’t always tell which year it was!
I am the worst procrastinator, and would never think about printing out the signs until the night before, or worse, the very morning of the first day of school! So, I started making the signs for other families to help them with their own photos.
These first day of school signs are up-to-date for the current school year, and we’ll continue to add on new designs here as we create them. So, you can bookmark this page and come back every year for the same design with the new school year, or you can mix it up and use a new first day of school sign for the kids every year.
**New First Day of School Signs for 2019-2020**
Here are our new signs for this year!
Our new signs this year are full of color to really make your first day of school photos POP!
Plus, the current school year is shown right on the sign so that years from now, when you and your kids are looking back on old school photos, you won’t have to try to remember what year the photo was taken.
See below for the other designs. I have all previous designs with the current year, so feel free to download them if you prefer them over our new ones.
Free Printable First Day of School Signs
I’m of the mindset that each new milestone in a child’s life should be celebrated. So, I’m including all of the grades that kids go through as they move up ever year, plus those special milestones such as the First Day of Preschool, the First Day of Kindergarten, the First Day of Middle School, and the First Day of High School. And, if anybody is also interested in a first day of college sign, please let me know and I’ll add that on as well!

First Day of School “Rocks” Printable Signs
Is your kid really excited about moving up a grade or starting school? If so, they’ll love these First Day of School signs. This sign is based on the signs I made for last year’s Last Day of School signs. I re-made them to say “Rocks!” instead of “Rocked!” and updated the dates to reflect the new 2018-2019 school year.
And, again, all grades, plus Kindergarten, Preschool, Middle School, and High School are included.(Updated for 2019-2020)
