One blogger’s honest review of the top ten reasons she loves being a part of her PTO:


  1. When you work full-time, it’s hard to feel involved with, and connected, to your kid’s school, especially since so many activities and events are during the day. I am so appreciative of our 6:30pm monthly meetings.
  2. Building relationships and getting face time with the principals never hurts.
  3. I’ve had the opportunity to meet some talented and dedicated parents.
  4. It’s allowed me to form a larger and more meaningful connection with our community.
  5. I’m proud I can use my time, along with my professional skills, to help improve my son’s educational experience.
  6. It allows me to have a voice in what is happening in our schools.
  7. It’s a forum to discuss or share concerns.
  8. By being involved in his school and taking on voluntary work to help our community, I’d like to think I’m setting a good example about the importance of both education and citizenship.
  9. It can be hard work, but it is also incredibly rewarding … and a lot of fun!
  10. It’s nice to be “in the know” on what’s going on, not just in the classroom but in the larger school district as well.
