Build A Wall of Your School's History


The history of every school can be fascinating for everyone who is involved with the school. One way to make that history available would be to make a special wall area in the school. Display historical pictures and other items of the school on the wall, including framed paintings, old pictures, and photographs.

At one of the schools where I served as the principal, we had the original bell that was used to announce the school day's start and end. We displayed that bell alongside a plaque that explained its significance.

If your school is named after a person, information about him or her should be displayed along with that person's portrait. An informational brochure might be produced and made available to visitors and families who might move into the school's community.
