Use this teacher appreciation poster to welcome students back to school.

Welcome Back to School - Teacher Appreciation Poster

Each year, teachers give their hearts to their students, thanklessly asking for nothing in return. Back to School is a time for showing appreciation, a time to celebrate a new year and new adventures that lie ahead. Show appreciation with the hallmark "give your teacher an apple" and an encouraging message from teachers to their classes.

What Is the History of the Apple? 

Back in the frontier days, townspeople were in charge of making sure the local school teachers were taken care of. Families with less money would give their teacher an apple to ensure they were fed with a special treat. Apples are harvested in the fall and this became a pop culture reference which carries on today.

Use this school bus time poster to welcome students back to school.

Welcome Back to School - School Bus time Poster

When you think of school, the first thing that comes to mind is a school bus. Driving students from their homes to school and then back again at the end of the day is iconic and sets the stage for a fantastic start to the school year. Children sit with their friends and sing songs in a safe journey while parents are at home or the office working. There's no better way to prepare for fun and play, other than the school bus way.

Remind parents to schedule a time to get their children's gear online or in stores before it sells out.
