Could it possibly be that time of year again? When the birds are chirping and my inbox is being filled with summer camp announcements?
That’s right. The last day of school is upon us. This can only mean one thing. It’s time to organize your photo props for the last day of school.
To help, I created this Free Printable Last Day of School Chalkboard Sign.
To be honest, I am really looking forward to this summer vacation. I can’t wait to break away from our daily routine of making lunches, doing homework and getting to extracurricular activities.
My big plan is to trade all of those chores in for at least a few lazy days on a chaise lounger in the backyard. (Ask me how I feel a couple of weeks into our summer holiday and we will see if I change my mind.)
I am excited to share a new free printable with you today (I know it has been way too long). I have created a Free Printable Last Day of School Chalkboard Sign.
It’s perfect to use in your last day of the school photos. When we started our school journey in preschool, I did not use any signs in my first OR last day of school photo ops. I know. What kind of mom am I?
As I have started to organize my photos in the past year, though, it has been very confusing. The years have started rolling together and now I’m not sure which photos belong at the beginning of the school year and which ones mark the end.
That got me to thinking that it might be time to add signage to my photos. I love chalkboard sign designs, so I decided to create one with lots of color. I used rainbow stripes and chalkboard stars. And don’t forget some paper clip confetti. It is a celebration isn’t it? (At least for some!)

Interested in a more custom last day of school signs? Now that the kids are starting “real” school, I am adding customized school signs to their end of the year photos (and we are planning a set to celebrate back to school this year too). This will let me keep track of the passing years (tissues by my side, of course). It helps to also have the year and grade in the chalkboard sign so I don’t get confused. Especially during late night photo organizing sessions. Because what other time do busy moms have to organize photographs?
The truth is that I’m the worst photo organizer in the world. (I might need to make myself a mug that says that.) They are just begging to get off my digital camera and past camera cards. Guilty as charged.
On a side note, this is one of my traits Mr. Mountaineer HATES and I am working to improve. If anyone has any tools that they can share to help me, please feel free to comment below.
