Thanks to Tyson® for sponsoring this post.
I love the excitement when kids head back to school. As a former teacher and now a mom I’ve seen both sides of it. I have one son heading off to middle school this year. MIDDLE SCHOOL.
When did I get that old? He’s in a hybrid program that I’m thrilled with but when we were looking at local options I was sad to see how much need there is in our local public schools. These schools are functioning on far less than they need and while parents are working hard at fund raising it just isn’t enough.
I’m amazed at how creative the teachers get to make it work but these kids deserve better. I never have much free time on my hands (actually if I’m honest, I never have ANY free time on my hands but who is counting) so joining in on elaborate fund raising programs put on by the schools just doesn’t work with my schedule. I want to help though.
I was recently introduced to the Tyson Project A+™ program. I shared a little bit about the program earlier and definitely check out the Crispy Southwestern Burrito that I made with Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips because YUM. The chicken is fully cooked and makes dinner so easy.
The idea behind the Tyson Project A+™ program is simple. You buy select Tyson® products, cut out the Project A+™ labels from the bag and submit them. Tyson will give your school cash for each label and they can use the money for whatever they need.
I just went through and nominated our local middle school. My son has several friends who attend the school and they love it but they could definitely use some extra money for supplies and equipment.
Nominate your school by going to Tyson Project A+™. Get details on the project here. Share your nomination with your friends. The school with the most nominations will receive a packet of labels worth $1,000 to help their school get a head start on collecting Tyson Project A+™ labels. That’s a great way to start the school year!
