It all starts with the 1st day.

Each new school year is an exciting journey of learning, growing and creating. For more than 60 years, Elmer’s has been an important part of going back to school. Now Elmer’s presents a whole new way to encourage creativity in your classroom: the exclusive 1st Day app. It’s the easy way to take photos of art projects, create custom slideshows, and share precious memories with students’ families.

Kids In Need Foundation

Giving students a helping hand

Elmer's is proud to support the Kids In Need Foundation in their mission to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed. Kids In Need distributes free school supplies to students whose families can’t afford them — and Elmer’s is helping out with a donation of up to 200,000 products! For every picture uploaded to the1stday.com, Elmer’s will donate one more product to the cause. Just by using the 1st Day app, you’re helping students succeed.
