Paying it Forward

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Lunchables. All opinions are 100% mine.

Fun trips for kids is what I’m all about, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to share this tip with my readers.  Lunchables is sponsoring an initiative called Project Potential with a contest called Field Trips For All where they will be giving away 50 class field trips to classrooms of deserving kids around the country.   Their aim is to help children grow toward their full potential and have experiences that they might not otherwise get to have.  Anyone who is at least 6 years old can enter and nominate a class.

Field trips can really enhance children’s learning experiences outside the classroom.  But with money being so tight lately, field trips are almost always one of the first things trimmed from school budgets. So here’s a chance to give back!

My own children have seen some commercials on TV for this contest recently and were excited to see me writing about it.  Naturally they wanted me to nominate their classes!  And, I have to admit, that was my first thought as well.

However, after a little bit of consideration, I realized that my children are very fortunate to have access to many school field trips during the year. Their schools have very involved parents for the most part, and the financial means to make them happen.  I’ve certainly chaperoned my fair share of class field trips.

So, I have decided to nominate a classroom that has a lot of special meaning for me.  Many of my readers already know that I am a former teacher.  For several years, I taught science at a public school in Memphis, TN.  It is a school that struggles hard, and full of students who don’t have the financial means to afford luxuries like class trips.  Still, I really enjoyed my time there and loved giving of myself to my classes.  My students were so full of potential, and they had to really struggle if they were going to reach it.

So — I’m going to nominate my former classroom!  I want the current science teacher at Sheffield Junior/Sr High School in Memphis, TN to win a field trip!   I have never met the teacher who has my old job, but I know the students there, and no one deserves a class field trip more than they do.

Now, I don’t know if my former students will be as wide-eyed as the 5th graders on this field trip in the following video, but I know they would still relish the opportunity to get some field experiences.

Do you  know a classroom who would deserve this opportunity?  Please help me spread the word about this opportunity, and maybe even leave a comment below about who you would like to nominate.  Do good!
