Sarasota, FL (PressExposure) August 12, 2009 -- All school administrators struggle with communicating school news and events to parents. One of the most effective means of advertising events such as a big game or a PTA/PTO meeting is via an outdoor sign. Outdoor school signs can improve event attendance, increase enrollment and help with fundraising efforts by highlighting school news.
âWe consistently get feedback from schools that our outdoor signs have an extremely positive impact on the level of communication between administrators and the rest of the school community,â said Rob Klinger, president of Signs Plus, an outdoor sign company serving the school and church communities. âAfter installing an outdoor marquee sign, many schools see attendance at school functions increase, fundraising efforts are more successful and some schools find that the sign helps with enrollment efforts. Signs Plus is pleased to be able to help schools communicate this important information with a quality outdoor sign.â
Outdoor school signs, or marquees, serve as the first impression of any school. Outdoor school signs can be utilized to express and increase school spirit as well as encourage attendance to school sporting or sponsored events. These signs are also an ideal means to promote upcoming fundraisers and to recognize outstanding achievements by the studentâs or alumni of the educational institution. For the school looking to many regular updates, LED signs offer flexibility and are energy efficient.
âIt's been almost one year since we received our Signs Plus sign and I can't believe all of the interest it has generated,â LeRoy Graydon Graham, Principal, Maur Hill Prep School, Atchison, Kansas . âWe update our message usually once a week and sometimes more often as the need merits and people really do notice. We've received many phone calls about it, and several parents told us they read it daily to keep up with the busy school calendar. I'm not sure how we managed without it for so long."
School signs are affordable for any school because Signs Plus offers financing and multiple price points. However, one of the most effective ways to pay for a school sign is to solicit local business owners for sponsorships. Banks, real estate agencies and other local businesses often will help subsidize some, if not all of the cost.
