Let’s be honest. Running a PTA/PTO is overwhelming.

There’s so much to take care of and even more you have to learn!

The binders you were given are almost no help at all, and you’re spending hours trying to figure it out on your own…

There’s no system for pretty much anything and it’s up to you to put everything together…

And then you realize you’ve been volunteering as if it’s your job!

No wonder it can be so frustrating and stressful!

As a new PTSO president, I only knew what I’d seen the year before. Sure I’d made notes … but all of that was scribbled in a spiral notebook which wasn’t helpful to anyone but me. I knew that I needed to get organized, but how do you do that for a PTSO!? … this kit was exactly what I needed! … At our next meeting, the principal, teacher rep, and fellow board members were all impressed with the binder… they made me promise that I’d leave it behind for them next year! I can’t believe that I waited so long to get our PTSO organized, when it was this easy! – Erin, on the President’s Success Kit

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is this a reimbursable expense?

You should not be paying for this resource bundle out of your own pocket!  Your fellow leaders will love these tools so much that there won’t be any argument about using group funds to purchase them!  A reimbursement form will be sent to you after purchase to make the process super easy.

Is this just for groups starting up?

This collection has been designed with new and existing groups in mind!  One of the most frustrating aspects of coming in as a new leader is that you only get the resources the previous leader hands over. Even if what you get is fantastic, there’s always room for improvement and fresh ideas!  You’ll find all that in this Collection!

Do I have to buy another copy next year?

Nope!  You’re free to print as many copies of the resources as you need for your group to use year after year!

Will I get printed copy of the resources?

Not currently, but we’re looking into the feasibility of making this happen.  The advantage of having the resources in PDF format is that you eliminate the need to physically pass along the resources- upload them to your group’s cloud storage system and reference as needed!

Is special software needed?

Nope!  Due to the size of the files, you’ll need a program to unzip the compressed folders and read the PDFs (probably already on your computer!).  Once opened, you’ll need either Word + Excel for PCs, Pages or access to Google Sheets for Macs to customize and use the templates.

I’m not good with computers. Will I be able to use this?

Absolutely!  This is the most user friendly assortment of resources and tools you’ll ever find.  There are instructions and set up guides for just about everything.
