As I sat down to write this article I kept hearing the old Beach Boys song in my head "Be True To Your School". Okay, so I am telling something about my age, but the song still rings true. School banners are a great way to show off your school pride. When you have the yearly open house at the beginning of the school year, it is nice to see the school banner hung out front for all to see. New students and their parents can admire it, while returning families can feel the rush of pride you get as an alumni.
School banners have many purposes and are designed in a lot of ways. The school banners that have the name of the school and a picture of their mascot can be used for special events held after school hours, or can be carried with a group or sports team if they are involved in an event where they are representing the school. Our local marching band had a school banner that specified the name of the school and the band's name. It served as a meeting place for the people in the audience who were supporting the band and also as a source of pride for the teachers and students participating. School banners can also be used to present motivational or inspirational messages. There are a ton of motivational messages that can be put on awith the school name and mascot. Putting these banners up around the school can help to reinforce positive ideas.
That is something only your school can decide but there have been quite a few schools that have given students the opportunity to express themselves on school banners. The art department allows the students to create drawings of the mascot, or of something about the school that they felt was significant. Students can also submit ideas for motivational or inspiring messages to be put on the school banners.
The student body as well as the faculty then cast their votes for the graphics as well as the wording. The top five of each were made into school banners that get hung at various points around the school. Many of the students said that they get more out of it by getting to help make the decision. They felt that by being involved, the school banners represented the students themselves instead of what the faculty and staff thought the banner signs should say.
The feedback from the students remains positive. The students that have already graduated still feel a great deal of pride in their school and some have become involved as volunteers because of it. The new students become part of the process as new custom banners are designed. And the previous banners remain on display for everyone to enjoy. School banners are relatively inexpensive. Therefore the school is able to continue this tradition every year. Funds are raised and the community gets involved on many levels. Pride in the school translates into pride in the community, and continues to build a strong positive environment for students and adults alike. And all of this created with a simple!
