Word on the street is that many groups are working on their fall PTO or PTA planning right now.  Wouldn't it be great if you could start your school community off on a spirited note next fall? It's such a hectic time of year for families ... they (and you!) need some fun.

That's why we are so excited to partner with the NFL and their Back to Football Friday program (for the second year in a row!). The NFL would like to invite YOUR school to participate in Back to Football Friday this fall! This fun, FAN-tastic event is a great way to drum up some excitement at back-to-school by rallying that school (and team!) spirit.

Here's how it works:

  • Register your school at www.NFLRUSH.com/backtofootball

  • Plan a Back to Football Friday Celebration anytime during the first 2 weeks of the 2011 NFL regular season this fall - invite everyone at your school to celebrate by wearing their NFL team gear to school.

  • 34 winning schools will be named NFL PLAY 60 Super Schools and receive an NFL team celebration and a $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 health and wellness grant*!

Registration is open. Once registered, be sure to upload photos of your event (learn more at  www.NFLRUSH.com/backtofootball).

Look for a  complimentary Back to Football Friday poster in the August issue of PTO Today Magazine!

*Grant awarded in form of a check made payable to winning school.
