Back-to-School: Power A Bright Future (and Giveaway, too!)

From time to time, I get up on my former-teacher soapbox. Don't worry, this isn't one of those times.  But, as a former teacher, I do know the hard work and effort that goes into being an effective teacher and running a school.


The right teacher and a good school can make such a difference in a child's life. When it came time for my middle son to go to preschool, we searched for the right school and teacher who would be able to handle the special challenges that he had. We found that teacher in Miss Michelle, who loved him, saw him as smart, and made a huge impact on him.  He's always been musical and the music programs in his school were invaluable as well.


He's in a new school this year, but doesn't quite understand that he does have a new teacher. He's waiting for his teacher from last year to show up. In his words: "My teacher is my Miss Michelle. She's perfect for me."


Those teachers and schools? When you find them, they are priceless. They made such a huge difference in the lives of our children.


But, sometimes, those schools could use a little extra help.  Enrichment activities like music, art, and sports are some of the most memorable for children, but those are often the first areas to go when there are budget cuts.


Each year parents hold fundraisers to keep enrichment programs in schools. Now there’s another way to raise money for your child’s school: Power A Bright Future, created by the Clorox Company, will help brighten kids’ futures with school grants to help fund critical programs. Parents and teachers can help kids continue to learn and play by nominating their school programs for a Power A Bright Future grant from the Clorox Company.



As part of the Power A Bright Future grant program, Clorox is seeking nominations for school programs for a chance to win a $50,000 grand-prize grant or one of three $20,000 grants to help provide critically needed resources to school programs that enrich kids’ lives and create brighter futures. In November, four schools will be chosen to receive grants and the opportunity to impact the lives of children in their communities.
 
 
 Nominators will receive exclusive Clorox classroom tools and the chance to win coupons for Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes, Clorox® Regular-Bleach and other great prize packs daily.
 
 
For more than six generations, Clorox has been a trusted stain remover and disinfectant, ultimately helping to keep families healthier, cleaner and happier. Clorox wants to continue to celebrate these activities that help kids continue to learn, play and create. To nominate a new or existing school program, visit http://www.clorox.com/ from August 12 to September 27, 2010. You will find the official rules there, as well as details on voting.

What a fabulous opportunity that would be for your local schools and programs! If you do enter, please let me know and I'll always give you a retweet to help spread the word about your entry!
But, in the meantime, there is a Clorox prize pack that you can win here!


Giveaway: One of you will win a Clorox giveaway bag which includes:
  • Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
  • Dr. Harley Rotbart’s book Germ Proof Your Kids
  • Clorox Hand Sanitizer
  • Tissues
  • Fun stickers
  • Crazy cutting scissors
  • Markers/pencils/crayons

To enter: If your email is not in your profile, please leave it with your comment. Please leave a separate comment for each entry. Contest will close at 9pm EST on Tuesday, September 7th.


First entry: Tell me about a teacher, school, or program that you think is worthy of one of these grants!

Bonus entry #1: Follow my blog either through GFC or by confirmed email subscription.
Bonus entry #2: Tweet and leave a link to your tweet: Help your school with a #CloroxBrightFuture grant and enter a #giveaway http://bit.ly/9DdQBh


I wrote this post after being engaged by TheMotherhood.com and Clorox and am being compensated for my participation.


This giveaway is now closed and the winner is Naomi #49. Winner will be emailed and have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.

Don't forget to apply at Clorox for a grant for a school program!

I love my kids Elementary school and so many of it's teachers. Theses teachers walk over backwards for the students. The P.E. teacher volunteers after school to have a running club and a Physical Education Enrichment Program. Both are free and open to all students.

My sons 4th grade teacher (also my oldest son's former 4th grade teacher) bends over backwards to get tutors to not only help those struggling in subjects, but also to help those who are excelled way past their levels. These tutors are also free.

I could go on and on about many more, but it would turn this comment into a book.

I think all art departments need a boost these days. When I was in school and school swere funded and didnt constantly have money being taken from them the art departments were vast, workshops of creativity, a getaway from the math and english classes. I loved art and made it my job and honestly without a great art department I might be doing something really boring and drab. I love my old art teachers and without I wouldnt be who i am today.

I don't have kids in school yet - otherwise their school would be my first choice. I would opt for the high school I graduated from. Lake County High School in Leadville, Colorado. It is such a small town, only one in the county. They don't get much funding for anything and you can really tell. It's sad :(

Rowlesburg School has 75% of the children living in poverty, and teachers get $80 a year for classroom supplies, and that's sometimes not even enough for the teachers to buy school supplies such as pencils for all the children who can't afford the absolute basics. There is no extra money at this school.

FIRST ENTRY: Mrs. Asti's Kindergarten class at St. Margaret Mary School is the one teacher that truly deserves one of these grants. Mrs. Asti is always providing for her students through her funds. Mrs. Asti is always supplying her students with school supplies that she purchased or received from local companies. Not one of her students goes without. She works two jobs (teaching & bartending) to allow her students to have a successful school year and not to go without. I love Mrs. Asti!

I'm not sure if daycare counts as a school but I'd like to mention my daughter's daycare anyway. They (Little People's Landing in Littleton, CO) do a great job of teaching the kids everything they need to know in preparation for kindergarten and beyond. My daughter even knows a little bit of Spanish already and she's just 4.

I would love for the school i graduated from to get this money but there is a school that is still new close by. It is a combination of 3 schools. 1 that was shut down, and 2 that were burned down by an arsonist. The school i went to was also burned down but it was a very large school so they rebuilt it. I also attended one of the other schools that burned but just untill 6th grade. This new school has no music program and no sports program. I think that music is so very important.

Seriously, every school deserves this grant, someone everywhere is making a difference in the life of a child! I would personally nominate my son's teacher from last year, Mr. Colgan who helped my son go beyond his issues by helping him to reach for the stars! He was understanding and kind and truly cared about his growth as a person and a student!

When I was a child I attended a very underprivileged rural school that my nieces and nephews now go to. It's in an area where practically none of the children's parents have college degrees, and education is generally not highly valued. However, in recent years the administration and teachers at this school have been developing a lot of new programs designed to provide the educational enrichment that most American children receive at home. More educational field trips have been scheduled, and after-school reading groups have been formed. I'm very proud of the progress they've made, and I know they'd be so deserving of a grant.
