Yesterday my kids and I walked around their school and gave their teachers Puffs and Bounty… why you ask.  Because they are a must have in the classroom and something that the teachers often end up paying for out of pocket.   Great way to keep germs under control with so many hands in one space.

Here are some interesting facts that the folks and Bounty and Puffs passed along to me:

A clean and healthy learning environment is an essential factor in the success of a school year. Bounty & Puffs have teamed with Wakefield Research to provide a rare look into what really goes on inside the nation’s K-6 classrooms, from those who know best, K-6 teachers.

How long does it take for children to mess up a clean classroom? The answer is only less than an hour! Most alarming for parents, the survey found that keeping up with the mess is directly affecting teacher’s curriculum:

· 2 in 5 (38%) kindergarten teachers spend more time cleaning their classroom compared to their home.
· A majority of K-6 teachers (89%) feel cleaning their classroom competes with other classroom activities.

Messes are not limited to just spills. 56% of K-6 teachers feel back-to-school season is the most dangerous time of year for immune systems. It doesn’t help that 97% have found something gross in their classroom, outside of the trash can:

· The top gross-outs include: used tissues (85%), followed by food remnants (68%), gum (45%), graffiti (39%), and boogers (38%). Can you spell yuck?

Tips from Bounty & Puffs

· 78% feel their classroom would stay clean for less than a full school week if they didn’t have any paper towels. Ask each parent to bring in a roll of paper towels or a tissue box on back-to-school night.
· A majority (90%) of K-6 teachers feel teaching students how to fight germs in the classroom should be part of the curriculum. So- add in a lesson plan!

Thanks to the kind folks and Bounty and Puffs for this information.  I was not paid for this post, all opinion are my own.  Thanks to the donation of products to my kids local school.
