Guess what?! That kid is about to start Pre-K! I will not lie, tears are being shed even as I write this. He was just born, right? Many of you have watched him grow up right here on this blog! I wonder if blogging will still be around when he graduates…let me not think about that now!
(This was just yesterday, right? I’m pretty sure all I did was blink and he grew up.)
This year was full of decisions for us. My husband and I had originally planned to keep our son in a private preschool in our area. Then, after much debate we decided to move him to public school for the pre-k program. We plan to take it one year at a time, so although we hope to have a great experience with our public school system, we haven’t ruled out private school yet.
This year though he will be attending our local public school, which means we are doing all we can to get involved and help give back. One of the ways we are giving back is by donating our Tyson labels with the Tyson Project A+ Back to School. Did you know that for every label clipped on participating Tyson products they will give back .24 Cents? That adds up!
It’s simple to sign up to coordinate for your school too! All you do is head over to the Tyson Project A+ Website and enroll your school then once you get a minimum of 100 labels clipped you send them in and Tyson gives back to the school. Surely with the amount of chicken nuggets families go through during the school year that should be an easy way to give back!
Giving back to our son’s school is extremely important to my husband and I because we want his teachers and school to be well equip with the best resources to teach him and help him grow and succeed in his education. I also want to be sure that I do my part to take care of the teachers who will be educating him. I want them to be able to focus on teaching the kids not how to pay for the supplies they need in the classroom!
My family loves the Grilled & Ready products so when I saw the A+ label I was overly excited! I picked up a bag to make some Grilled Chicken Roll Ups, which will be added to my son’s lunch box this year too! The participating products can be found in abundance over at Walmart.
I decided to make these by adapting my dill dip and adding spinach into the dip. Hidden spinach? Gold star for mommy! Then, I added some cheese and grilled chicken and rolled it up! My son varies day to day some days he likes pinwheels and sometimes it’s roll ups!
It’s a simple way to eat a delicious meal, plus give back with the Tyson Project A+ Back to School!

It won’t be long until I’m writing this post again talking about my baby girl entering school…then my son would be in 3rd grade. Pass the whole load of tissue now…the tears aren’t going to stop.
Now, are you ready to help? Start buying some participating products and clipping, every cent helps your child’s school and that is worth clipping for!
