Both of our boys will be in school this year and we are excited for our new journey as a family. Of course as parents we want to do all we can to send our children to the best schools that suit their needs. Personally I am lucky enough to have a schedule that allows for me to be available and I joined the PTA. While I know how fortunate we are that I am available to our children and the needs of the children at their school, this isn’t feasible for everyone.
Devoting long hours at school is hard work, but it’s also considered a luxury of you don’t have the time to volunteer to help our your kid’s school. Plenty of moms and dads work outside of their home on a tight schedule, and are doing all they can to keep the family going. However, there are plenty of ways you can pitch in to feel more connected and even make a difference at your local schools.
One of the quickest ways to help raise money for your local school is to participate in the Box Tops program. Purchasing Reynold’s Kitchen and Hefty Trash products you would normally already need, then taking a second to clip the Box Tops points from the top of your purchase. Rallying a group of moms to collect these Box Top points can be lucrative to your local school. I’ve heard of school’s earning thousands towards their playground fund and other necessities. This can be a simple and easy way to contribute to your child’s school without the hassle of baking a ton of cookies and putting together a conventional bake sale. You can enter to win up to 10,000 Bonus Box Top Points for you school here!
Reynolds Kitchens™ and Hefty proudly support the Box Tops for Education initiative which helps schools like mine raise money for supplies, technology and more. Find Box Tops on most Reynolds Kitchens™ products like Parchment Paper, Oven Bags, Slow Cooker Liners and Bakeware Pans. You can also find Box Tops on Hefty Trash Bags, Hefty Foam Plates and Hefty Cups—all things I need to make life easier during the busy school year!
Now through August 29th, you can enter here to be one of 50 daily instant winners and enter to win the grand prize of $1,000 worth of Box Tops for your school! A total of five schools will be chosen for the grand prize and you can enter once a day until 8/29 so bookmark the site and visit often.
Most people think that by joining the PTA you have to commit yourself to being on the school grounds. This is not true, in fact, you don’t event need to be a parent at a school to join their PTA. Having just come back from the National PTA Leadership Conference, I learned a lot about the legislation that has been passed over the years through local chapter PTA’s. A nominal fee from each family can make a huge difference in the type of issues your school is able to address.
If you can’t make your way in to school, there are plenty of work from home jobs that can be tackled with just an hour from home once in a while. It could be as simple as dropping off a letter while grocery shopping to help sponsor a school event, easy data entry to help keep things going, or phone calls to gain local sponsorships. All of this can have a positive effect on fundraising for your child’s school, all within reach.
At the end of the day, parents in unity can affect change within the community, and support the children in it to become their best selves.
