Forms Needed

We have found PTO sign-up tables get largely ignored. We hang poster-sized sign-up sheets for most of the activities during the year in each classroom during "Meet the Teacher Nights" and get much better results.

I love the folder idea too!

I will pass that information along to our activities coordinator.

We have a form that goes in the parents enrollment packet. I also put it on colored paper so it is easy for office staff to pull and put aside.

Once classes are chosen, it is passed on to the homeroom parent. It works and lets the homeroom parent know what parent pereferences are and helps involve parents who do not sign up during the meet the teacher nite.
We used to do it during that nite but experienced parents wanting to wait and see where they are needed and then no one signed up.

Here is a sample of our form.

Due to health department regulations, all food brought to the school for classroom refreshments must be either pre-packaged or prepared by a professional bakery.

I hope this helps!

We give every homeroom teacher a set of sheets to tape to the wipe board. Parents sign up in the small classroom setting at "Meet the Teacher". All of the forms are then distributed to the chairperson after the event. We include EVERYTHING in this sign up and explain what is expected of them before they sign up. Everyone likes to know what type of time commitment they are getting into. This has worked great for us for several years. The PTO tables are not ignored because the lines are so long.

Don't forget to check the File Exchange area. Many forms of all types are shared there.
