First/Last Day of School Video

First Day of School 2023-2024

First Day of School Signs

Derry Township School District's Community Engagement Department is continuing the Back-to-School/End-of-year tradition for the 2023-2024 school year! For the first day of school, we invite parents to send us a photo of their student(s) on their first day. We have provided a sign you can use but also invited them to make their own!

We will be taking all of the submissions and compiling them into a video to be sent out on social media to our school community.

To make things easier for you, we have created DTSD "My First Day of" signs that you can print out from home for your first day. Feel free to make your own sign too! We love creativity.

Submission Link: Closed
