10 Reasons to join the PTO
1.Budgets at every school are tight. Money raised in school fundraisers is often used to pay for those little extras that can make a school a bit special.
2.Knowing that they can (within reason) predict a certain level of fundraised extra income each year will allow your school to plan an effective and realistic budget.
3.Helping at PTO fundraising events helps you get to know your kid's teachers better and understand the way the school works.
4.Being part of the PTO helps you get to know other parents and their children. This is important for school matters but also great for a more active social life!
5.By joining the PTO you have the chance to promote and enhance your school's standing within your local community.
6.Although occasionally embarrassed, most children
actually like to know that you are there for them, taking an interest and sharing their experience.
7.Talking to other parents helps you and them. Sharing experiences and parenting tips helps us all.
8.The commitment is not too much. The occasional evening meeting and at least one school fundraiser.
9. Everyone has different talents and skills they can bring to the school and parents are a great interface between the school and the 'outside world'.
10. It's actually quite fun to be a part of events and being there to watch the kids enjoy themselves at the school. Isn't this what it's all about? The whole MCS experience is for
and your kids!
So isn’t it time you got involved?
