Great idea for School Registration Day. Videos promoting your PTA!

As the founder and creator of Digital PTO, I always feel like we need to do something better each year when we register for school and get families signed up for the PTA.

The first year we introduced the concept of an email list and eliminating the paper news.

The second year, we asked families to register with the PTA on the computer vs the traditional paper form.

The third year we introduced online payments with online registration.

This year we are creating a seamless experience for our families as they register for school. With one stop parents can register and pay for school fee’s, register and join the PTA, sign up to have their photo taken for the Photo Phone Book, sign up for volunteer opportunities, browse this years selection of School Spirit wear and finally, kids can speak with the Principal and find out what teacher they will be with for the 2011/2012 school year.

One of the things that we are focusing on this year is promoting what the PTA has done in the past and what it will be doing in the future. In addition to the email that went out the day before, we made a quick Keynote presentation (mac’s version of power point) to display on the walls of the gym via borrowed classroom projectors. The effect was fantastic. It was almost like a PTA rock concert. Almost… :)

Below is the video that was playing on the walls. There is no sound, it’s just a looping slide show for effect. And it worked.

It's Free. Forever. Seriously.
