As parents, back to school is a busy, expensive time. We have to get the kids back on their schedules, get ourselves ready for the demands of school in addition to day to day activities, and we have to make sure our kids have all of the gear that they need to succeed.
Its stressful, and expensive, but have we ever stopped and thought about the preparations being made on the other side? Every year teachers spend an average of $1,000 on supplies to help our children learn. That's a lot to pay out of pocket, and its just one of the many ways that they are supporting our children's educations. Without their support, can you imagine how bleak our children's classrooms would be?
This year, GreatClips has teamed up with Adopt A Classroom to give back to teachers. To say thank you for all that they do, and to help them with the large financial burdens that they face.
Between now and September 5th for every download of GreatClips Online Check in App, a donation will be made to Adopt A Classroom.
