Our school is participating in the Tyson Project A+™ program, a fundraising program sponsored by Tyson Foods, Inc. Through this program, we can raise up to $12,000 for our school this year! The money can go towards supplies, building improvements, school programs, or anything else we choose. It’s an easy way to raise much needed funds by sending Tyson Project A+ labels from products you probably already buy. Here’s how it works: Just clip and collect Tyson Project A+ labels from participating Tyson® product packages and send them to school withyour child. We’ll collect the labels and send them to Tyson Foods, and Tyson Foods will send our school a check. Each label is worth 24¢!

Thank you for your support!
