With 5 children in our home, I can assure you that every child in this world is unique and amazing in their own way. Each one of my children have their own strengths and weaknesses.
Building Confidence at School
Our second to the youngest, Jaci, has always been our most shy and sensitive. These traits are actually the ones that we based our decision on when choosing to send her to public school.
We decide child-by-child, year-by-year, and we needed her to make friends and learn to put herself out there. With just 3 years in our local school system, she became quite the socialite.
Jaci’s teachers and the staff were more than accommodating in helping to break her out of her shell. I am sure there are plenty of other students that are the same, but this was our story. Our school.
Through relationships fostered during her classes, school events and every day activities, she was able to break out of her shyness a little more each day.
Plus, being able to trust and learn from other adults, it allowed her to understand that she did not have to be afraid in similar situations.
She continues to live out the many lessons she learned at the school… beyond the textbooks and worksheets.
The confidence and self-esteem Jaci gained while in school is simply one more reason we still support the school through Tyson Project A+™.
Once enrolled in the program, an administrator or designated parent from the school can collect labels and submit them to Tyson® Foods.
Upon verification, they will then send a check directly to the school — typically within 4 to 6 weeks — so your school can get extra cash for whatever it needs.
It is essentially our way to continuously give back to a school system that poured so much into our kids during their time in the public school system.
Now, whether they need new computers, playground equipment, or books, whatever the need may be, we can still help them accomplish these financial goal.
By shopping at Walmart for our favorite Tyson® products, such as Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips and Fun Nuggets, we can easily clip and collect Tyson Project A+™ labels from specially-marked packages and send them to the school.
They will then receive 24¢ for each label that they can then use as needed. Plus, we nominated them to win $1000 worth of Tyson Project A+™ labels.
Here is how you can get involved:
- Visit Walmart.com/ProjectA+
- Nominate your school by sharing why your school needs a head start on collecting Tyson Project A+™ labels.
- Once you submit your reason, you will get the option to share your post on your OWN social feeds to drive your community’s involvement.
- 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.
Nominate your local school and get involved in helping them have everything they need to better your child’s learning environment.
It may change a student’s life more than you realize.
