School Wide First Day Welcome Themes

Our school would like to make the first day a bit more special for the students this year. I've heard of "red carpet" welcomes, is there something your school does or something you've heard of that we can try? We are a small school of 150 kids K-12 so we have some flexibility. TIA!

Hello school year!

It is difficult to say good by to summer for children and adults. So why not do some school wide activities that have a summer theme the first week?

You could play beach boy music over the intercom and have a five minute dance break.

You could serve ice cream after lunch to everyone.

You could have a flip flop day and allow everyone to wear flip flops.

You could play some water games outdoors at recess and allow
them to get a little wet.

Teachers could read summer themed stories aloud.

Kids could bring their beach towels to curl up on and read.

Students coul write about summer fun.

Then the next week might be a school theme.

Everyone receives an apple for snack one day.

Have a school assembly to celebrate being a community. Say the pledge and then sing some fun songs.

Play team building activities in class.

Read back to school stories as read alouds.

Maybe have some free school supplies to hand out one day. For example a pencil that says welcome back to school would be nice.

The last thing on Friday of the first week, my school has a whole school assembly.

At that assembly, new staff and students new to the school are introduced.

The school song is sung.

The teachers do a back-to-school song...familiar melody...school related words...funny hats related to the song.
