Add vaccines to your back-to-school supply list! Preparing for back-to-school also means making sure you and your loved ones have the correct immunizations. Requirements vary from state to state, but some common guidelines include the MMR, diptheria, and yearly flu vaccines.

Immunizations protect those who get them from disease, but they also protect other members of the community with compromised immune systems who would otherwise be vulnerable, such as newborn babies or the elderly.

For more information on National Immunization Awareness month, check out the CDC’s resources on the event. You can also see their recommended immunizations for children, teens/preteens, adults, and travelers.Screen Shot 2015-08-06 at 3.56.33 PM

Summer is fading fast. School is here for some and just around the corner for many! Today we’re featuring our top ten school wristband uses:

10. Events

Silicone wristbands can make a great souvenir for memorable school events like homecoming, dances, or other student body activities. More durable than Tyvek, they can also be used as a way to keep track of ticketing and entry.

9. Thank-you

Custom wristbands can be a great way to say thank you to teachers, volunteers, PTA members, and administration. Here’s one example of how parents banded together and used wristbands to thank teachers.

8. Support

Silicone bracelets are often used as memorial bands or to demonstrate support for class members or staff going through tough times. Here’s an example of silicone bands supporting a high school coach through cancer, or wristbands being used to raise funds for a sister school after a hurricane.

7. Graduation

Custom wristbands make a great way to commemorate graduation — even sixth-grade graduation. Bands that read “Class of ____” are some of our most popular school wristband choices. For more graduation ideas, try this article on high school graduation traditions.

6. Clubs

Mark club membership and support by using wristbands for clubs: chess, art, drama, debate, etc. Different benefits and ways to use silicone bracelets for identification, pride, raising awareness, and fundraising can be found here.

5. Achievement Programs

Some teachers and administration like to use wristbands as part of reading, studying, or achievement programs. They can be used as either a reward for success in the program or be used to launch and garner attention towards and serve as a reminder for the program.

4. Sports

Track, football, soccer, cheer, basketball… custom sports wristbands are great for building team spirit (and fundraising) for school sporting events and teams. Here are ways to use wristbands for fundraising, building awareness, tournaments, and more.

3. Excellence

Schools often use wrist bands to promote and reward excellence in behavior and good deeds. One school used wristbands to promote kindness.

2. Awareness

Whether the cause is staying drug-free, stopping bullying, a suicide prevention message, health commitment, or Walk-to-School Day, wrist bands are a tangible, wearable reminder of the cause or promise and a great way to spread awareness among students and staff. Give them out at an assembly or classroom event to build awareness and even save lives.

1. SCHOOL SPIRIT

School mascot/school spirit wristbands are the number one most popular back-to-school wristband from Reminderband. They are used to fundraise, given out at assemblies or activities, worn around the school, and build school pride. They can also be used to commemorate anniversaries
