Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day. Even in these unprecedented times, from virtual classrooms, teachers continue to work endlessly to ensure their students are equipped with the tools and knowledge they need to be successful. To thank them for all of their efforts, each year, people around the world take a week to recognize teachers for their immense impact on our future leaders during Teacher’s Appreciation Week. To celebrate Teacher’s Appreciation Week, West Allis Blue, a Canon U.S.A. customer based in Milwaukee, has shifted its business to support local communities during the current pandemic.
Utilizing Canon’s imagePROGRAF printers to produce educational packets, which include 10 pages of different coloring activities, maps, cross word puzzles and word searches, West Allis Blue has been able to provide teachers with creative, fun projects students can do while at home.
These packets are customized per grade level to benefit students ranging anywhere from Pre-K through Eighth Grade. As 76 percent of students say they tend to perform better when using print rather than digital materials as study aides, utilizing these printed educational packets can help students understand and retain information more clearly, while also encouraging them to explore their creativity, even during a time of remote learning.
“With the current pandemic affecting our local communities and businesses, we wanted to utilize our products and skillsets to help our customers stay efficient and creative even while at home,” said Mark Naber, vice president, West Allis Blue. “Canon’s technology has helped us to produce over 30,000 large format educational prints. We look forward to continue utilizing Canon’s products to produce these packets and support teachers and students in their remote learning environments.”
In its efforts to continue supporting its customers during these times, with each purchase of an educational packet using the promo code OKCANON, customers will receive a 5 percent discount off their order, and West Allis Blue will donate one face shield to medsupplydrive.org to benefit frontline workers.
