Show off Your Students! Easy Lawn signs to Build School Community

I have loved this idea from Head Over Heels teaching and have been wanting to make them for such a long time! These signs are perfect to build school community among staff, parents, and students. I’ll let you in on you can make this happen for your classroom ON. THE. CHEAP! Such a really easy idea for a school committee a well. I made these for my son’s school in cooperation with the principal for distribution to their students over the course of a year.

I have 10 of these Positive Yard Signs ready to go for you to increase your classroom community.

Why to Love School Lawn Signs

  • These are pretty inexpensive to make (see below!)
  • Show school spirit through your community!
  • the SURPRISE – imagine coming home to see a sign in your yard meant for you! How special. This really shows the extra commitment to relationships that can improve school community as a whole.
  • easy to rotate and get to each student. If it was for one classroom this wouldn’t be hard to manage and great to rotate. School wide, administration can help get signs out and help with visiting students at home too.

Student Pride Lawn Sign Wording Ideas:

Here are options available in the Positive Signs product

How to make School Student Achievement Lawn Signs

The best part is how inexpensive these signs are to make. JoAnne (Head Over Heels) used her Cricut to make the signs. A Cricut is a great way to add vinyl to these signs you can use signs (like these!) or even from Lowe’s. This would be great if you were making for one classroom. I like how you can extra details that would be great special for your classroom.

If you were making these for a school or for multiple teachers, I went with the printing option. The cost of supplies vs. shipping and vinyl made the most sense. You can design and as long as it is saved as 300 dpi get it printed from many places.

Imprint.Com was the cheapest option after shopping around. I was very happy with their customer service and updates – when it was printed, when it was shipped, and more! The quality was also superior! The stands are even larger than I imagined (although the dimensions were there – it is tough for me to visualize.
