It’s that time of year again! Back-to-school memes celebrate the momentous time when a brand new semester starts. It’s an exciting time for many kids but for those who are not the biggest fans of school, it can also be a stressful one. That is true for teachers as well who have a lot of work to do to prepare for the upcoming lesson plans and activities. This means that teachers, students, and parents alike could all use a little stress reliever. For us, nothing makes us laugh more or gives us more perspective than some hilarious back-to-school memes.
We decided to round up dozens of our favorite back-to-school memes to share with you just in time for this season. Send these hilarious memes to a teacher you might know, a student you might be fond of, or even parents who are also readying for the school year to start. Now, scroll through these delightful back-to-school memes to catch a smile and, hopefully, a laugh or two.
Nothing Matches It
You likely remember being a student and how difficult getting back into the swing of things can be. This is also true for teachers who have a ton to get done all while teaching and looking after the kiddos. Thus, this is one of the best school memes about first-week fatigue.
You either loved or hated school as a child and there is simply no in between. This is one of the most hilarious back-to-school memes that perfectly illustrates that point. Who hasn’t been that little child curled up into a fetal position at some point?
So Many Emails
This back-to-school meme should be pretty relatable for parents who are trying to navigate the start of a new school year. You are likely getting emails from every single one of your kids’ teachers and, for whatever reason, they all contradict one another. Sometimes you just have to let go and let God.
The Expiration Date
This eagle-eyed kid or, we suppose a teacher, found a significant correlation between the expiration date on a gallon of milk and the last day of summer vacation. It’s one of the most biting back-to-school memes for those who truly are not ready for the semester to start. You know who you are.
Where is the lie? In this back-to-school meme, we find a Furby with closed eyes as a stand-in for all the sleepy faces teachers will see on the first day back to class. This is so spot-on and just perfect.
The supplies are the fun part. Who doesn’t remember wanting all of those Lisa Frank decorated school supplies? In fact, for most, picking out all the cool school gear is the only good part of returning to school.
Expectations VS Reality
The truth is that school work is real work. You can’t succeed if you don’t put it in. Many of us start the school year with big plans for success. Those expectations do not always match reality. Keep trying kids, you’re going to make it.
Here is one of the funniest back-to-school memes about the difficulties of getting back to work on your education. Whether you are a young learner or a seasoned one, it always feels jarring to see all the work you will have to do throughout the semester.
It’s a Jam
For anyone who has to commute past a school and for the parents who drop off their kids, you know well how badly back-to-school traffic is. This is especially true for larger schools with plenty of students. It will even out eventually!
For most parents, back-to-school is a bittersweet time. Taking care of the children for the summer months can be a real chore. Many of us just feel grateful to have lived through the experience. However, you did it! Time to take a personal day to reset.
We find a perfectly captioned meme in this example. It imagines the difficulties of making new friends on that first day back and a parent who is rooting for you. Keep at it. You are doing great and you will find your people eventually!
We get an assist from Michael Phelps’ game face for this back-to-school meme. It should ring pretty true for those who do not even want to think about returning to class. Honest question, what music do you think Phelps is listening to as a way to get pumped up?
It Never Stops
Here’s another one of the back-to-school memes about all of the emails parents get from their kids’ schools. It’s so overwhelming. Maybe we should do a staggered start to the school year so that every person has time to get on the same page.
Smarter Than They Look
Here is a fun one about school versus internet culture. Can you relate? We imagine this is true for a lot of folks. It’s pretty stupid to make yourself look less intelligent than you are to seem cool, we will say. Be authentically yourself always.
In this hilarious back-to-school meme, we find a mom sending her kids off to school a bit earlier than necessary. For many parents, back-to-school cannot come soon enough. Summers are great for kids but they are pretty brutal on parents who have to juggle jobs and even more child care.
If you liked the previous meme, chances are you will absolutely love this one. Two kids pose for their first day of school picture with mom. They do not look too happy about it. Meanwhile, mom is lounging in the pool with a frosty drink. This is just perfect in every way.
It Can be a Struggle
Getting all the school supplies your kid requires for class is much easier said than done. This meme correctly visualizes the struggle while trying to round up all the gear a kid will need. Stick to your list and you will get through it, parents. Bless you.
We find a classic meme template put to great use in this one about the way “school supplies” was written. If you can’t help yourself, this meme should feel pretty great to you. It’s always fun to read between the lines.
We all remember that creeping feeling of having to speak in front of our classmates. It can be stressful for many, especially if you had an uneventful summer. When in doubt, just make something up that sounds remotely believable.
In this rather stupid back-to-school meme, a student imagines a heated exchange between them and their teacher. The celebrity reactions here make it so fun. Be kind to your teachers, kids. They are doing their best with very little resources in most cases.
A Lot of Running Late
Getting used to the new school schedule means a lot of late students that first week back-to-school. That is what makes this meme about driving kids to school so relatable. Take your time folks an injury is not worth getting your kid there on time.
Here is another one of the back-to-school memes about having to speak in front of a class. There has got to be a better way. Until it is discovered, we have this meme to turn to about just how terrible it is.
The Dread Is Real
In this back-to-school meme, we find someone who cannot even stand the sight of a commercial about returning to school. Most of us just pretended it was not happening until it inevitably did. You will get through it.
Parents Are so Proud
Parents sure are proud of their little monsters on their first day back to class. That means a lot of social media posts with first day of class photos contaminating your feed. If you have got a little Gremlin, this should be a fun one for you.
