Customize Your Header in Google Classroom

Google Classroom has added new theme options (and removed the old options) for the class header. Click on “Select theme” and choose the one you like!

Create a Custom Header

Instead, click on “upload photo” in the header to create your own image.



or try alicekeeler.com/goto for a template with a finger that points to the Classwork page.

My Google Drawing template creates the perfect size for your Google Classroom header image. Change the background color, drag an image or Bitmoji onto the canvas, etc… Use the File menu to “Download as” and choose “PNG.” This will download the image to your computer so you can upload it into Google Classroom.

  1. Hi Alice! Thanks so much for this update. Just used your 2017 post to create headers for my classes. They looked great in Drawings – but when I upload them to Classroom they came out with a dark filter on top. Any suggestions on fixes?

  2. Thank you so much for your video tutorial on making the header with a bitmoji! I LOVE that! I was thrown into using google classroom, forms, docs, slides all at once with distance learning, and your video by far was the easiest help I’ve seen. I also appreciate you giving me a template from which to work! Thanks so much!!!
