Mottos and slogans are the means to unite students of your class and give them a common voice to express in unison! Read on for some ideas on senior class mottos and slogans.
A class motto is a brief statement that is used to express the beliefs and ideals of the class. A slogan is meant to advertise or promote something; in this context, the ideals of the class. The two words are used interchangeably.
The purpose of mottos and slogans for a senior class is to bring the students together, and foster in them a sense of unity and team spirit. They are the means to give one voice to a group, and give the group a unique identity. Slogans and mottos carry an inspiring message and motivate the students to work together and perform as a team. They create the fever of being and feeling one and spread a sporting spirit. They lay out ideals and inspire students to live by them. They give the students a sense of combined identity.
Class mottos and slogans are commonly accompanied by a class song, color, flower or a mascot for the class. They give the class a personality of its own, and make the students feel united. The symbol (mascot, song, color, or flower) represents the values that the class lives by.

- To come up with a good slogan, sit together and brainstorm. Give everyone a chance to give their suggestions. Consider taking help from parents or teachers.
- Remember that the slogan should include your motto as a class, something that represents your ideals.
- Your senior class motto should be something you will take pride in.
- You can consider getting the class slogan printed on t-shirts, caps, or sacks. Plan to wear/carry them on the last day or for a special event. They will also serve as souvenirs for the students.
