One of the most important milestones for kids is the first day of school each year! And every parent wants to commemorate the first day of school with pictures so they can be shared with friends and family, and of course, saved for later. To help out with your first day of school photos, I’m happy to share these first day of school signs each and every year! Here are the signs for 2018!

Free Printable First Day of School Signs for 2018

The printable file includes signs for Pre-K, Preschool, Nursery School, and Kindergarten, plus 1st through 12th grades. There’s also a “First Day of Primary” sign for Canadian kids! And just in case, I’ve also included a general “First Day of School” sign. Every sign comes in four colors – pink, blue, green, and purple – so your little ones can each choose their favorite color.
