As a Latina and daughter of a Math Professor, education has always been a priority in our family! My dad used to say: “my most valuable inheritance to you is the education”. Everyone deserves a right to education, and it is important that we have people out there who are passionate about what they do like academics such as David Parrott and others within his field, so they can pass on their wisdom and intelligence to a whole range of people. It is important to always keep in mind that education creates a path for those who want to contribute to society and others. So when your child is ready to go to school, you need to take a look at what is out there and see which would be the best resource for them, from Bronx charter schools to New York private schools. Whichever it is, scope them out first.
I followed in his footsteps, as an educator myself and school owner, I have provided the best education to my son in our area, to ensure my son carries on our legacy, our family pride! It is obvious that education is essential, however, there are roadblocks that do come up with education, for instance, education board issues do crop up here and there, so we have to, in the forms of school owners/runners, have to get the correct legal help to get through these periods for hopeful and clear resolutions for our children.
That’s why I am super excited to share the importance of joining me and so many other moms who are sharing about such an important program as Labels for Education – a fun and easy program where families and members of the community work together to “Earn Free Stuff” for their school!
By collecting UPCs and beverage/sauce caps from the many participating products and supplementing your earnings with their bonus offers, your school earns points that can be redeemed for Arts, Athletics, and Academics merchandise. Explore their online catalog to see what your school can earn!
If your school or organization is not one of over 60,000 registered with the Labels for Education program, you can help your school enroll by contacting your school principal and asking them to appoint a coordinator, or you can volunteer to be a coordinator. The school coordinator helps by managing the school’s account, program communication, point collection, and redeeming points for merchandise for the school.
We often purchase the items included in this program. We went to Walmart to purchase some extra soup cans, so all the children could have their own can to decorate. If you have any questions check participating items here.
Are you ready to make your own Label Container? Here is the material list:
- Empty and cleaned can of soup
- Decorating tape
Step 1: Clean, wash and dry the can you will be using
Step 2: Cover the edges, in case children will be doing this craft to avoid accidents.
Step 3: Use the scissors to cut some pieces of tape, the children decided to make flowers, animals, different things, so having an idea of how you wish to decorate is your first step, so you can cut pieces to get started.
Step 4: Use the tape to decorate the can, carefully covering it, so all the outside is covered and the sharp edges as well. This is my son’s creation, he made a dog! He was actually having so much fun, he made two containers! One with plain tape around and this one!
Step 4: The sky is the limit! Let’s get creative! Place your labels!
My son’s school is participating in the program, so we invited some of his friends over this summer to spend a fun time decorating their own label container! We talked about the importance of reminding their parents and teachers to collect and be a part of it!
