Schools is coming around the corner again so it’s time to start thinking about how we might support our schools once more.
There are several programs out there that give money back to schools, including the Tyson’s Back to School Project A+ Program. With the Project A+ Program your school can earn $.24 for each label, that is more than any other label program out there! I think these programs are great because my girls go to a wonderful charter school, but it receives about 20% less from the state than a traditional public school. So any money we can help them get is great for them AND my kids!
Here is the overview from Tyson‘s site on how it works:
- CLIP & SAVE: Clip and save the Tyson Project A+ Label.
- GIVE TO SCHOOL: Turn in the labels at your school. The Tyson Project A+ program runs the entire school year.
- REDEEM: Your school redeems the labels for cash to use any way it wants. Each label is worth 24¢ (minimum 100 labels).
It easy easy to find out if your school is part of the program and if they are not you can sign them up. Just head on over the Tyson Back to School Project A+ Program site.
Then click in the the Get Started box (on the Is Your School Registered Link):
It will take you to this page:
You can enter some information about your school, like the phone number or zip and check to see if they are registered. My school is registered, but if yours is not you can easily register them or update their information, then check on the progress! (see the whole process and shop on my Google + album). Now is a great time to do this, as it can take up to 4 weeks to get it going.
Once the program is in place you can get lots of great ideas on getting the program going at your school on the Tyson Website. A few they mention are:
- Have classroom contests to see who collects the most labels
- Send a letter home to your school’s parents that explains the Tyson Project A+ label program.
- Send news updates to the media
All these are great ideas and there are a bunch more on the site, so make sure you check them out.
After checking out the Product Page on Tyson’s website I headed out to my local Walmart to pick up a package of Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Frozen Chicken Breast Fillets. I figured I could make an easy lunchbox entree with the chicken breasts and a homemade honey mustard dip. It’s super easy and quick (both of which are great when packing lunches for your kids for school).
