Free Printable Last Day Of School Signs (With Editable Option!)

The end of the school year is always filled with so many emotions!  

The kids are excited to be free for the summer break and parents are thinking about how to keep the kids occupied and making plans for a summer vacation.

Whether your kids are in the first grade or are completing their senior year, most of us now try to make time for those last day of school photos.

We want to commemorate the special day that our children complete a school year, even if they are rolling their eyes at us and saying “Mom!” in that tone that we all know and love!

I know that I felt some level of exasperation when my mom would take last day of school pictures of me.

Many years later, I am so happy to still have those memories to look back on.

The only thing I find missing sometimes is that I can only guess at my grade level in the photos, especially if the writing on the back is smeared.

Yes, imagine some of us still have actual printed pictures!

Of course I know it is much simpler to keep track of dates with the way technology has advanced since the time when you had to go get your film developed.  

However, I imagine it would be nice to be able to just look at the pictures and know right away how old your child was or what year of middle school they were completing.

Enter the ever helpful last-day-of-school signs!  Now you can have all of the information you could need in one fell swoop.  

It is your choice to keep things very simple with dates or very specific to list your child’s favorite things from that particular year.

There are so many different options for how you can use these free printable last day of school signs, so let us take a look below.

Pre-K Through Twelfth Grade Last Day Of School Signs

These first set of signs will include your child’s grade, as well as showing that they are completing the 2023-2024 school year.

I really like the simple black background with the beautifully bright colors that give off the same aesthetic as a chalkboard sign.  

This colorful sign is to the point and very celebratory to help send your child off to have a very happy last day of school!

The really fun part of using these signs is that you get to do a bit of a mini interview of your kids!  

If you choose to use these signs every year, it will be really fun to see how their answers change or stay the same as well.

Ideas For Editing

You can have so much fun with the different options on these last day of school printables.

If you want to keep things very simple, you can print your signs on regular copy paper and call it good.  

This works exceptionally well if you are already running behind and in a hurry!

In these situations, it is always good to remember that an imperfect something is better than a perfect nothing.

If you happen to be able to give this project a little more time, you could print out your free printable signs on some heavy cardstock and maybe have the kids decorate it.

I personally find that I get the best results from my son if I allow him to be a part of the process.  That translates to not so much eye rolling and a real smile in the photo!
