Hilarious PTO Memes You Never Knew You Needed

Get our free mega bundle of memes about volunteering (and joining the PTO, of course), in one handy download.

by Kerri Beauchesne


Chances are, your PTO has a Facebook or an Instagram...maybe even a TikTok (go you!). If your PTO struggles with parent engagement on social media, try adding a few memes and reels to the mix!

Everyone loves memes because they link instantly recognizable pop culture images with witty (and often relatable) captions. Using memes to promote upcoming PTO meetings, volunteer opportunities, and school events is a great way to boost engagement on your group's socials. Check out one PTO's Taylor Swift inspired reel that answers a question as old as time, "So...what exactly does the PTO do?"

Once parents see that finely crafted meme of yours in their feed, they'll have themselves a good chuckle and come to the realization that being part of the PTO might actually be...dare we! Below, we round up some of the best memes about volunteering at school and why everyone ought to join the PTO or at least come to a meeting. Conveniently download all of them (40+) in one handy file, below!
