PTOS AND SCHOOL FUNDS I remember when my son was in elementary, the first big PTO event was the school carnival. From digging in sand piles to find treasures like donated Happy Meal toys, to face painting, games, races, and cupcakes and pies for sale. These events are a lot of effort, but back then, I was up for it. Baking cupcakes to sell, helping with set up, take down, and run games. Those are precious times for a Mom and her kid(s). Dads even manage to show up which is really heart-warming. It all pays off with pictures for the annual yearbook and raises good money for much-needed school supplies and equipment around the school.
The PTO is a vital part of school life; I’ve seen the difference in areas where there is little to no parent involvement in poorer areas where parents have little to no time to donate to the school. So, if you have the time and even if you don’t have a little one, dive into this 2018-2019 school year and volunteer with resources to help out schools without a PTO! It genuinely makes a difference.
I cannot think of a cooler thing for a PTO to rent than Mist Cooling Inc’s Inflatable Mist Cooling Arc – it’s big, blue, and showy, and serves a purpose for those early hot school days, especially in concrete parking lots or on b-ball courts where many carnivals are held. It’s also available for purchase (use it year after year!) Brandable, i.e., “Lake Forest Elementary School” on the Arc’s top, sides, or both. It’s durable, easy to clean, lightweight to carry (weighs 20 lbs when deflated), easy to set up and take down. Measures 16′ x 16′ x 12′ high when inflated. Reduces hot temperatures in the application area by up to 30°F. Hooks up to a common garden hose or spigot and operates on city water pressure. And it’s big, BLUE, and flashy! It would also make a wonderful football game entry Arc for your school team! Optional battery pack available.
