Using Your School's Brand to Boost Spirit During Distance Learning

While some schools have resumed in-person teaching, for the time being, others are taking a more digital route. Digital learning may be a great way to minimize risk and allow students to take care of themselves during this difficult time, but it also poses its own problems: namely, loneliness. Being stuck in isolation, away from peer groups, certainly doesn’t do a child well in this respect, and it certainly doesn’t do much to make them feel like the part of the tight-knit community that thrives within your school.

Does Your Gym Need Wall Padding? How to Assess Your Facility’s Needs

Many educators would agree that extracurricular sports are just as valuable as a school's academic curriculum when it comes to creating well-rounded students. There are certain things a young person learns on the field that they won’t learn in the classroom, and vice versa. It’s for this very reason that your school should also be devoted to protecting student athletes with wall mats and gym wall padding. Athletes need to feel safe in order to play at their best, and they also need to come off the court uninjured and ready to attend class the next day.

All About Bleacher Safety Curtains and How They Can Enhance Your Facility

Nearly every school has them, even though they come with inherent safety risks. We’re talking about bleachers. With their tiered rows, metal edges, and industrial appearance, bleachers can be both a safety concern and an eyesore in contrast to school gymnasiums decked out in logos and similar school-spirit-boosting attire. Perhaps that’s why many of us don’t remember our school’s bleachers all-too-fondly – if you remember them at all. If you do remember them fondly, it’s probably because you used to break the rules and play underneath them during recess or sporting events, which hopefully never resulted in any nasty injuries.

Why Does a Style Guide Matter?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we all received an instruction manual that told us how to dress well for every occasion (yes, even for the nebulous “semi-formal” events) and win social approval? While this certainly isn’t a reality, it can be for your school brand. The metaphorical instruction manual is called a style guide, and it keeps all your school branding ideas and protocols in one place, which makes it easy to access and adhere to. With a style guide on your side, your school will never be out of fashion!

Rebranding: Should Your School’s New Brand Blend In or Stand Out?

If you’re looking into rebranding a school, every idea must be judged and scrutinized closely. Does it promote an environment of inclusivity? Do your colors clash or harmonize? Are you fully committed to the complete school branding process with this idea in mind? While you may have many questions at this point in the process, one you must inevitably grapple with is “Should my school rebranding idea blend in or stand out?”

5 Reasons to Invest in Roll Out Mats

For student athletes, many lessons can be learned on the court or in the heat of competition. Sporting events and gym classes are therefore a crucial part of your students’ education, but if you have just one gymnasium, it can be challenging to make it work for all types of athletic activities. Plus, it’s likely your gym must frequently and quickly transform back into a space suited for general PE classes, which means you might not want to install anything that would be hard to take down. So how do you provide a safe sporting environment for all different kinds of athletes?

What message do you want to send to your student body with this change in the brand? What about parents? Staff? Logistically, how are you going to go about making sure all your school branding ideas come to fruition? Have you found the right company for the job?

Make Your Windows Pull Double Duty with Window Graphics

If you’re like many people, you may think the windows of your school serve one purpose: to let in natural light. Of course, natural light serves a multitude of purposes in itself, such as cutting down on lighting bills and boosting student morale, but without windows to let it in, your school is left in darkness. Perhaps the importance of natural light is to thank for the conventional ideas surrounding the functionality of windows.
