Volunteer Appreciation Done Right - PTO Today

...Sleep on It At the end of fundraising season, one PTO’s leaders hold a slumber party (sans kids!) at a local hotel. Members reflect on the past year’s successes and how they have affected staff, students, and families. Each board member pays her own way for dinner, and they split the cost of the adjoining rooms. Ride in Style Ask a local limousine service to donate a car or two for your next family fun gathering. Arrange for pickup and drop-off of the night’s key volunteers and their children. Give Them the Night Off One parent group in New Jersey coordinated with the superintendent, local scout and club leaders, and coaches in town to schedule a “night off” for the community. Families got a break from obligations such as PTO meetings, homework, and athletic practices so they could enjoy dinner and an unhurried evening together at home. Add It Up Tally the annual number of hours your volunteers give to the school and calculate what their salaries would be if they were paid....

How To Organize a Trunk or Treat - PTO Today

...Tables or shade canopies can be used in the place of decorated car trunks, giving space for people to set up their decorations and games. Another option is to have a teacher or volunteer at each classroom to hand out candy from the classroom door. Setup Allow an hour for cars to set up before the festivities begin. Have someone on-site to direct cars to parking spaces or assign each registered car a number and draw numbers on the parking lot in chalk ahead of time. If possible, leave an empty parking spot between vehicles to help space out the trick-or-treating crowd. Tickets Many trunk or treat planners allow children to move freely between vehicles. Others have a system so that kids stop at each car just once, reducing the chance of running out of candy or prizes early. If you expect a large turnout, it might be worth giving each child one ticket for each trunk-or-treat station and having them turn in a ticket when they stop at each vehicle. Or you might print up cards with blank bo...

How To Plan a School Field Day - PTO Today

...He puts together all the activities and decides on the games and schedule, when lunch will be served, and which venue they will use. The PTO contributes money for the event. Parents also assist Igims by preparing and setting up for the activities and then monitoring them. “You need to have a strong person within the staff who coordinates field day,” Margittai says. “If just the PTO organizes the event, you still need input from the staff because they know what’s important and what the kids can and will do.” The teachers also participate in field day at Pittsburgh Phillips. They walk their classes to the facility and rotate through the activities with their students. Some of them participate and some take photos. “It’s fun to see the adults having fun, enjoying the games and activities outside of a school setting, and hear parents interacting and building friendships,” Igims says. Some activities are individual, some require teams, and some involve the entire classroom....

How PTOs Can Get Students Moving - PTO Today

...But who says you have to wait? Traditional games like the three-legged race and the sack race are classics for a reason—they’re fun and provide good exercise. Or find a twist of your own: One school based its games on activities described in Dr. Seuss stories. A middle school PTO with a very popular field day found that the messier the activity, the more the kids enjoyed it. Especially popular was a game where kids passed small buckets of flour over their heads to fill a large bucket. One group runs an end-of-summer swim party as a get-acquainted event for students and parents alike. Consider holding a roller-skating night. Set up a jump rope marathon or a pickup basketball tournament. Or use active video games to get kids interested. A video game dance-off is sure to be popular, especially if you get the principal and some teachers to participate. The ultimate goal is to help kids adopt a more active lifestyle and to find physical activities they enjoy. Think of your group’s ro...
