Four Ways to Give Back to Your Child’s School

September 20, 2019

With school back in session, it’s time to start thinking about how you can make a difference for your child’s school. From clipping and turning in Box Tops to organizing a fundraising event, there are many ways that you can get involved with the school community. Here are four ways that you can help out this year:

  • Head back to class – For a hands on opportunity to help your child’s school, consider stepping back into the classroom and becoming a room parent. Whether you are helping with special activities, or simply sharing your knowledge and experiences with the class, your child’s teacher will be grateful for an extra set of hands during the school day. And as a bonus, you’ll gain a better understanding of what your child is learning while demonstrating that education is important!
  • Plan a school clean-up day – After a long summer it’s no surprise that your school might need a little sprucing up. Gather a group of parents and reach out to a teacher or administrator to ask about small projects that need to be done. Things such as cleaning up the playground, planting flowers around the entryways or adding a fun mural to the hallway will make a big difference and be appreciated by both students and parents.
  • Collect Box Tops – With the Box Tops for Education™ program, earning cash for your child’s school is as easy as buy, clip, send. Box Tops are available on several popular grocery products, household items and office supplies – including reams of Boise POLARIS® Premium paper! When you see Box Tops on specially-marked packaging, clip them and turn them in to your child’s school. Each Box Tops clip is worth 10 cents and can be used by schools to purchase sports equipment, art supplies and more!
  • Organize fundraising activities – Schools are always in need of extra cash to fund field trips and after school clubs. Organizing a fundraising activity or event is a great way to get to know other parents while showing you care about the school. Bake sales or car washes are simple to implement and allow students to get involved too. If you’re looking to get creative, here are several other ideas for fundraising activities.

With these ideas, you can make a noticeable difference at your child’s school. For more ways to help out and other back-to-school tips, visit www.BePaperSmart.com.
