This week I’ve been seeing a bunch of my friends sending their little ones to school for the first time. I remember what that was like! Last year at this time, Carter had just started Kindergarten, and I was a nervous wreck!

Now my guy is a big 1st grader, and he strolls into school with the confidence that comes from his vast experience. Sometimes he even blows Mom kisses (because he’s not too cool for Mom yet)!

The year before Carter started Kindergarten, we started looking at our options for schools, and we decided to send him to a charter school. We looked at two different ones, but when we visited Imagine Rosefield, I knew it was the one!

The school reminded me of the elementary schools I went to on the East coast, and I could just see Carter walking through their doors every day, and playing on their playgrounds. Everyone who works there is so friendly, and the teachers are fantastic. We were thrilled for Carter to attend!

Now that we have one kid in school, and others who will be headed that way in the next few years, we are invested in their education and want to help in any way we can. After all, we are teachers too!

One way that we can help our school is with Campbell’s Labels for Education program. There are over 2,500 products that can earn points for your school, such as soups, popcorn, cereal, and even some school supplies. In fact, a good portion of my weekly groceries are participating products!

You may already be buying products with the Labels for Education, and not even know it. If you find one, all you have to do is clip it and send them into school with your child. As the school earns points, they can trade them in for arts, athletics, and academic merchandise.

To make things better, you can even print coupons for the participating products, on the Labels for Education website. And the products can be found at almost every store. We get ours at Walmart when we go grocery shopping.


With all of the budget cuts schools are facing these days, anything that we can do makes a difference! Check their site to see if your school participates in the program. If so, you can go online and see your school’s points and even check out their wishlist.

Right now, Labels for Education is having a sweepstakes, where 1000 schools will win $1000! Are you going to enter for your school? If they win, that could mean new playground equipment, or books for the library, or maybe even a fresh coat of paint! What could your school use? How would you like to see your school spend the $1000?

Today is Carter’s birthday, and so I’ll be heading up to his school soon to bring in a treat for his class. I really love when I get an opportunity to visit the school and his classroom, and see the exciting learning that is taking place. I’m glad his school participates in Labels for Education, and we’ll keep clipping to do our part!

A Day In Kennebunkport, Maine #TenneyTravels


When I was in 6th grade, we moved to Kennebunk, Maine. I lived there until I went to college, and my parents lived there until they followed me out to Arizona, in 2008. When I tell people I’m from Kennebunk, sometimes they say, “Don’t you mean Kennebunkport?” No. I know where I’m from. But I […]
