This is my oldest daughter on her first day of kindergarten, last year.
Can someone please hand me a tissue? Wow! She has grown so much since then!
Thinking back upon her kinder year, I just have to say that she is so totally blessed that she was chosen to attend the public school that she’s at. It’s a very unique school because it’s a complete Spanish immersion school. This means by the time she gets out of the 5th grade, she will be completely bilingual and bi-literate in both Spanish and English. For the public school system to offer this type of unique learning environment is just awesome. As a parent, I want to do what I can to support the school system, whether it be on the PTO committee giving my time or supporting the school financially. And that’s why I love the Tyson Project A+. It’s another great way to raise money for such a great school!
When I was given the opportunity to blog about the Tyson Project A+ program, I was stoked! The Tyson Project A+ works pretty much like any other label collection program and is super easy to sign up for. When I saw how much they give for each label, I was pretty darn impressed. 24 CENTS. That’s a lot!
So, I went right to the Tyson Project A+ website and signed right up. It was easy to enroll and took no time at all to get my daughter’s school on the list. The website also has resources for helping your child’s school achieve their fundraising goals. They even have clip art you can print to decorate collection boxes!
Once you collect 100 labels, you can send them in for redemption. I think that’s great because I know my daughter’s school really needs it! If you haven’t signed your child’s school up yet, I highly suggest you do so!
Here’s my oldest, one year later. She has matured so much. My bonita hija (beautiful daughter) is going into primer grado (first grade). My, how time does fly!
When we picked up some Tyson products at Walmart to start our label collecting, I decided to come up with a yummy, unique and easy recipe using one the Tyson A+ Project participating products.
Using the Honey BBQ Chicken Strips, I made Honey BBQ Chicken Egg Rolls and paired it with a creamy coleslaw. Kind of like an Asian-American fusion of flavors, and it really worked!
Check out the recipes below and don’t forget to check out my Google+ album to see how much fun my daughter and I had shopping for our Tyson products!
