Top 16 Most Popular Elementary School Shirt Design Ideas
Most people do not remember their elementary school days. Of course, we remember the formative moments: The first time you scored a goal, that time you fell on the playground and chipped a tooth, maybe even your first kiss. But what about the every day stuff?
Don’t you wish you had something that your students or fellow staff members can remember?
T-shirts can serve as a great reminder of all those awesome events during the school year.
Here are 16 of the best Elementary School T-Shirt Designs!
16. World Dial
For a kid, coming to Elementary School can be scary. It is the first time that they are away from their babysitter or their parents. Honestly, pretty sure most people spent their entire Kindergarten year just crying their eyes out.
This design is a great reminder that, not only are we there to learn, we are there to learn about each other. Not only do we “Explore our world through learning”, but we do it together! Hand in hand!
15. Ignite Your Passion
This design is perfect to help ignite your student’s passion for learning! With bright colors, a cool font, and some fiery PASSION, this is perfect for all age groups, but especially for staff! You can tell your students that you care about their education with this cool design on your chest. It’s a great design to get everyone pumped up, especially before a big school rally.
14. Retro Mania
Do you have a part of your building that needs a bit of an upgrade? This would be the PERFECT fundraiser shirt to get rid of that “throwback” style and come into the modern day.
It’s a cool, simple, retro logo that will never go out of style. Plus, you can really get parents to fork over some cash for this. It may take them back to their elementary days. Radical!
13. Choose Kindness
From a young age, kids know that they need to be kind and good. It’s up to teachers and staff to make sure they keep that mindset. Choose Kindness is a slogan that won’t go out of style.
In Elementary School, amid all of the book learning, we also have to teach our kids how to behave. This simple, cute design and short slogan will help remind your kids to be good to one another. It is super easy!
12. Mascot Thing
Yeah, the title may seem a bit vague, but this is right on to help your students feel their individualism. Nothing creates school pride more than feeling like they are a part of something big, something that they truly help make unique.
With a combination of fun and serious fonts, this design can work on many different levels. You can throw your mascot in the center and strut around the school, knowing that you are a part of something big!
11. Believe There is Good
Students perform random acts of kindness all the time. They pick up a friend’s books if they drop them, they compliment others (although, this could be because they have no filter), and they do this because they know it is the right thing to do.
This is another simple slogan that helps teach your kids that goodness can come from anywhere, they just have to be the good. It is a great staff shirt, as well. Teachers, you can lead by example by being the good that your students see every day!
This shirt pairs well with Autism Awareness Month. You can also check out our Autism Awareness specific shirts here!
10. Fifth Grade Signatures
Imagine for a moment: It is fifth grade. You are holding your yearbook, wearing a brand new t-shirt, looking forward to the new image on the horizon.
Having a shirt filled with your student’s signatures will help them to remember how many people really have their back. And, when they grow up, it is there to remind them of their friends.
This is a simple design that puts the focus on the important part of growing up.
9. Your Words Box
A lot of elementary schools teach students about the “Character Counts” pillars. There are six of them and each one is a trait that is important when building up their character.
This shirt is perfect to emulate that idea. You can really focus and hone in on what traits you want your students to know and you can promote them with a cool design.
On top of that, the symbol in the bottom corner can help you promote STEM and STEM literacy!
8. Believe Achieve Succeed
These three words are integral to a child’s upbringing. Ultimately, all teachers, parents, adults want students to succeed. In order for them to succeed, they need to believe in themselves.
Another great staff shirt to tell the kids exactly what they need to hear: “We believe in you, we will help you achieve success".
7. Proud Flag
What a cool design! Not only does this inspire school spirit, but also pride in America! Striking colors, patriotism, your mascot, and a great slogan.
“We Are One” is not only the cornerstone of American ideals, but it is also a great message that students need to hear, especially in this day and age.
It’s a great way to teach kids about school spirit, patriotism, and unity. Perfect for a Memorial Day or Veteran’s Day fundraiser.
6. Retro Rainbow
Is anyone getting a big Lavarr Burton vibe? This shirt is the best way to remember what Elementary School is about: GOOD TIMES!
The cool, retro design of this is another one to make parents throw down some cash and help support your school! It can also be a fun Staff Dress-Up Day and have them all dress in retro fashions if a fundraising incentive is met.
That idea is free, the next one will cost you.
5. Movin' On Up!
This striking, modern design is a great alternative to the signature design for fifth graders. You have a group of kids who are ready to move on to the next stage of life, why not send them with a really cool t-shirt and some great memories of their Elementary years.
This design is really cool and somewhat punk inspired.
4. Retro BE Slogan
This is something that ALL people need to take to heart, but Elementary students are the ones who would benefit from this the most. In Elementary, these kids are just starting to find themselves, find out who they are.
They need to have the courage to really come into their own amazing self! It is also a colorful design that really pops out at you. Almost literally!
