The first day of school is so busy. Instead of taking pictures on the first day of school, wait a few days and take them on the 5th day of 5th grade, then take another one on the 5th to last day of 5th grade.
Pictures can be posted for open house and then given as an end of the year gift.
Pick your favorite color or mix and match! Signs are easy to make. Just print, laminate, tape to a paint stirrer, and snap the pics!
