Sending Money Safely to School Using Labels

Parents and teachers, are you always worried if money makes it safely to and from school when sent with a child? If so, this post is for you!  Here’s a great way for parents to ease their minds when sending money to school with their child. Every year, money is sent to school for field trips, lunch, book orders, yearbooks, snacks, and for countless other reasons. Parents are often crossing their fingers that the money arrives safely (and in the full amount) to the teacher once arriving to school. This is especially true when it comes to primary grades when students are given the responsibility to deliver money safely for the first time.


Teachers, on the other hand, are often handed money, sometimes wadded together, without a note as to what the money is for. There are also times when the teacher receives what they think is the full amount but confusion sets in when the parent contacts the teacher to realize money is now missing. This can create panic and time away from teaching and working when trying to figure out what the money is for and how much was actually sent to school or home.

It’s time to get organized and stop the confusion and worry for teachers and parents!

Labels needed for this project:

Other materials:

  • Ziploc bags
  • Envelopes
  • Pen
  • A fun reason to send money to school

Using the OL5100WX labels, peel and stick the “School Money” label to the front of an envelope or Ziploc bag and fill out accordingly.


With envelope or Ziploc bag being sealed, the money arrives safely to school and the teacher knows right away what it’s for. Parents will not worry anymore and teachers won’t have to stop and make several phone calls in the morning to figure out why the money was sent. A win-win for parents and teachers.

These school money labels provide a space for what the money is for, the amount, if it’s cash or check, your child’s name, the teacher’s name, and the date. Teachers, this is also an amazing resource for you! Print these labels for your parents as a little gift to create a stress-free year when money is involved.
