Be a Part Of Something Good.
As the idea of Smart Cow Yogurt Bar began swirling in our heads, we knew one thing was certain: we would dedicate our business to helping local schools. Statistics on the state of education in this country are unsettling. Budgets are being cut, and schools are forced to eliminate programs, teachers and staff. Who really pays? The kids. We are making a difference in our own backyard, one school at a time. Each Smart Cow shop regularly donates part of a day’s sales to a local school. We want to help as many schools as we can, because we know how hard they work to make ends meet. Improving education is a big undertaking. Fortunately, eating great-tasting frozen yogurt isn’t. It’s easy to join our cause. Come soon, come often. It’s cool to be smart. Spread the word.
When it comes to education, you should know:
The nation and many states face continuing challenges in delivering a high-quality education to all students, according to Quality Counts, the annual report card published by Education Week. The nation receives a C when graded across the six distinct areas of policy and performance tracked by the report, the most comprehensive ongoing assessment of the state of American education.
