One of my favorite items to create for a start of a new school year are birthday door signs. I believe that if you are blessed to see another birthday then that is something to celebrate. Prepping for staff birthdays is a fun and easy task to prep before the school year begins. That way it's done and you will not miss celebrating anyone's birthday. Here are the steps I take to pull it off:

  1. Create a calendar reminder of everyone's birthday. I am signing onto my computer anywhere between 6:15-6:30 am so I set the reminder at 6:30 am. That way I gather all my materials and head straight to that teacher's classroom so that I can post the sign and put their treat bag on their desk.
  2. Write all your cards during the summer. This will save you so much time. If you dedicate 5 cards in the morning and 5 in the afternoon you can quickly knock these out real quick. I bought this set of birthday cards from Amazon. 
  3. Put all the materials together in a drawer. I put the completed card inside of a treat bag and the flyer underneath. I also put them in order. That way when I pull them out to use them all I have to do is add the candy. I typically try to get whatever their favorite treat is to put in the bag, but often times I will just put chocolate. I keep candy in jars in my office for this main reason--to fill my birthday treat bags. 

By using these three tips I was able to not miss anyone's birthday and have something to give to them to celebrate their birthday. I wanted to share the signs with you that I am using this school year. I did five different designs included one for staff birthdays that occur over holidays, weekends, or the summer. 

If you are digging these designs be sure to click here to access the Google folder that includes a PDF file of all the designs along with a file folder of each image if you want to go digital with it. I hope this helps you celebrate staff birthdays for the upcoming school year.
