  • PTA is not the be all and end all of volunteering for your school. I know many people including myself that volunteer for specific booster organizations such as athletic or band.

  • Yea, I am a PTO member and it is really hard to find volunteers. We just started a FB page and are inviting all parents to join the page so they can see when we really need help!

  • Our school is very small,We don't have a PTA or PTO or even a Booster Club.. I have tried to get the school to let me start one , but there is not enough parents interested... Which is so sad

  • I donate items to the PTO all the time. I have donated time, but I don't enjoy it. The women are snots and they don't stick to the time frame they committed you too. You sign up for 2 hours and end up being there 6 hours. Not cool. They actually pushed me away. I was planning on being more involved.
