When Schools Merge - PTO Today

..."We brought in a couple of authors, went to the bird sanctuary and the zoo, had a skating party, and a lot more." A New Beginning A consolidation can often mean the merging of two very different congregations. "The major challenge that we faced was merging a school with a limited minority population with one that was at least 70 percent minority," says Cramer. Neighborhood meetings helped air the concerns of parents, while plenty of pre-consolidation activities helped the children get acquainted. Months of pen-pal exchanges and busing students back and forth culminated in a science assembly in which Cramer, sitting on a skateboard, was shot across the stage via the fire extinguisher she clutched. Perhaps the most symbolic unification of cultures was the decision to add the Spanish translation to the original name of the school (River Road/El Camino del Rio). This blending of cultures is also evident in a list of the school's get-togethers in the first year after consolidation: All Sch...

Collection Programs: Tips To Pile Up Profits - PTO Today

...At the end of the year, the class with the most donations gets a pizza party, and their teacher is given a gift card. Regardless of school size, "don't offer a ton of prizes. You really don't have to," Stewart advises. "The kids enjoy cutting the box tops and having them neatly wrapped" because they feel like they are doing something important. And, she adds, remember to include the faculty and thank them afterward for participating; they shop as much as the parents do. Stewart also suggests contacting local businesses and organizations to ask for donations of used items. Fast Track to Fun Many kids love a little healthy competition, so April McFall, the technology facilitator at BF Kitchen Elementary in Loveland, Colo., uses it to encourage students to bring in larger recyclables—ink-jet, laser, fax, and copier cartridges, cell phones, and PDAs to support the group's participation in the Cartridges for Kids program. She has created a mock racetrack on a bulletin board in the comput...

School Spirit in the Spotlight - PTO Today

...” The final show is followed by a cookies-and-lemonade cast party, open to all participants and their families. Behind the Scenes The Kennerly Variety Show can only be successful with the efforts of countless parent volunteers. “We have 32 hard-working parents who head 19 different committees, each of whom is dedicated to producing a family-valued performance,” Colona explains. The top organizational tier for the event consists of two PTP cochairs and the music teacher. A theme is chosen late in the school year, songs are selected for the grade acts during the summer, and choreography, decorating, and prop and costume design begin in autumn. Kids start practicing in January and continue until the show in early March. Other key volunteer positions include: Three coordinators per grade who help select music, develop choreography, and teach children their acts during recess. A decorating committee, which coordinates props, costumes, and lobby displays. This group is ideal for parent...

The Playground King - PTO Today

...They provide funding and manpower for the annual children’s Halloween party at the fairgrounds, an all-night high school graduation party, and the annual Christmas in July construction and repair for the home of a needy family. Even with this busy volunteer schedule, 15 to 30 club members take part in each playground installation. “We have saved our school district hundreds of thousands of dollars,” says Roberts. “The 25 playgrounds we have built are worth more than $1 million. By using donations from Community Projects Inc., the parent groups at the various schools, and the Kiwanis club, and providing thousands and thousands of hours of free labor, we made all this happen." Along the way, Roberts and his group have learned the ins and outs, timelines, and strategies to make a playground come together. He doesn’t do it alone anymore. The Kiwanis group expects and receives the cooperation of the school’s parent group to help raise funds and donate man-hours to put the proje...

Magazines: Focus on Renewals, Discount Prices - PTO Today

...The Logan-Rogersville PTA holds a party after the sale where each grade plays games like the limbo or a bungee run. It takes two days for everybody to attend—and that means everybody, even those who didn’t sell anything. “The PTA takes a cut in profits because of that, but we’d rather it be fun for all the kids,” says magazine sales chairwoman Shannon Kennedy. On the other hand, says Rene Ulloa, a Richmond, Va.-based regional manager for Great American Opportunities, including everybody can bring complaints from families that sold subscriptions. Ulloa prefers setting the minimum participation level low enough—such as four subscriptions—that all students who put forth some effort can take part. Dos and Don’ts Don’t try to sell new magazine subscriptions first. Instead, tell students to first ask potential customers if they have any magazines in their home, advises J.C. Smith, general manager for American Publishers. Then ask if they would like to renew subscriptions f...
