The period between Thanksgiving and winter break is a busy one! Take a look at a few of the easy ways you can post fun video ideas to social media to help your school community stay on top of it all.

8 Ways to Share the Holidays through Your School’s Social Media

1. Give Thanks

What a year it's been! Let teachers and parents know how much you appreciate them with a short video thanking them for all they do. Share it via email or post it on Twitter and Facebook to make sure everyone gets to see it.

With just a few simple edits to our Thank You Card template, you can personalize the message for parents and teachers as shown in the example below.

2. Holiday Events

Create excitement for school holiday events with a short post on social media. Make sure to include the time, date, and location so that students and parents know how to attend, as the Hannah Senesh Community Day School does in their video below. Or, use our Holiday Event Invitiation template as a guide to make your video.

3. Holiday Newsletter

Help your school community keep track of what’s going on with a video newsletter, featuring info about concert dates, food drives, and other holiday happenings posted to social media. You can try out our School Newsletter template, which you can see customized below, to get you started.

4. Highlight Good Deeds

The holiday season is a season of giving, so shine a light on students, teachers, and alumni making a difference. For instance, the Vallivue School District created the video below to highlight how their students are helping those in need both in their community and beyond.

5. Lesson Recap

Showcase class projects or creative lessons by sharing highlights on the school Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter accounts. You can even create lessons by customizing our Vocabulary Lesson template shown below.

6. School Fundraisers

Give parents, students, and alumni the info they need to participate in school fundraisers and food drives by posting a short video on Facebook and by sharing occasional reminders on Twitter. For inspiration, take a look at this video the Vallivue School District shared on Facebook to advertise their winter coat drive.

7. School Calendar

The days off come fast and furious in November and December. Help parents and students keep up with a video calendar listing half days and dates when the school is closed, then post on all your social media channels. You can even get creative and turn your video into a header for Facebook or run the video on your school’s homepage.

8. Send a holiday message to parents from the school

Wish your school community a safe and happy holiday break with a quick holiday message sent from your school’s principal or the district superintendent, paired with photos and video clips of students and teachers actively engaged at your school.

Video gets the word out about all your school's holiday happenings in a fun, eye-catching way. Which holiday video will you make first?
