I have a quick tip this week -- two links that will serve both your parent group and your parents really well. Hope you'll get connected and get the word out to your school parents.

1.TeacherLists.com -- Get your teacher's class supply lists and teacher wish lists on this great site and make life much easier for both your teachers and parents this summer. Bonus: Right now there are some very cool free school supply incentives for schools and teachers who get involved early. There are even free kits just for PTOs and PTAs to help you get your whole school connected.

2. SchoolFamily.com -- Are you helping your parents make sense of all the many school challenges they face? Helping with homework? Connecting with teachers? Dealing with test anxiety? SchoolFamily.com has a ton of resources for your parents. It's a great link from your PTO or PTA website. (You can even get a custom link graphic to put on your website).

We definitely want you to enjoy summer (you've earned it!), but we also know that back-to-school time comes fast. Both of these sites can make that dreaded day much easier for your parents.
