United Art & Education Celebrates Educators’ Dedication

Educators put in many, many extra hours while school is in session. Many educators have a never-ending supply of papers to grade, lessons to prepare and tests to create—their students aren’t the only ones with homework. Their work doesn’t even end in the summer; they spend their “vacation” time planning for the upcoming year. Plus, teachers spend some of their own money on supplies for the classroom.

As another school year approaches, United Art and Education will be celebrating the dedicated efforts of area educators during its Back To School season, which runs from July 5 through Labor Day. The retailer will give away hundreds of dollars in gift certificates at each store location during the event.

Teachers will want make note of two special days on their calendar – July 17th and August 7th are Mystery Envelope Mondays! Starting at 9 a.m., the first 75 customers at each location will have a chance to open a Mystery Envelope. The envelopes will contain a $5, $10 or $20 gift certificate to the store. There is no purchase necessary to play, and every envelope is a winner!

Educators will have the opportunity to add extra supplies to their classroom by signing up for United Art and Education’s Gift Card Giveaway. One lucky winner will win a $500 Gift Card.

Plus, for just $1, customers can purchase a 2017-2018 school year calendar which features more than $30 in money-saving coupons throughout the year.
