One of our PTO presidents just called and asked me to help her come up with a "Top 10 Reasons to attend the next PTO meeting" list. She's trying to boost attendance at the meetings, which are really quite informative, but only about 10% of the school's families are represented.
Some of my ideas include:
- Free gourmet chocolates/homemade cookies/Starbucks coffee.
- Be entered in a drawing to win [name of freaking awesome item]. Earn an entry for every meeting attended and then the drawing will be held at the last meeting of the year.
- Hear all the latest gossip! (Hell, that's the reason I attend.)
