Fill out the hanging file cover sheets for each grade including year, teacher, school, etc., and attach a school photo for each year. Glue or tape to the front of a hanging file.


Attach labels for each school year to file folders. If desired, you can create multiple file folders for each year and separate them into different categories such as schoolwork, artwork, awards, etc. File papers according to each grade level.


Label the bin with your child’s name. Feel free to use a marker, or save this blank label with a school supply border and open it in an image editor to add text. I used, an online editing tool, to add text to images. The font pictured is called Yesteryear.
