“Lost time is never found again.” (Ben Franklin)
The mid-winter rhythms of American families, schools and businesses can provide a welcome respite from the manic pace of early fall and late spring. While this is obviously not always the case—as many factors, including health, finances, successes and failures, come into play to impact these rhythms—the middle of the school and fiscal years can allow some introspection about how we accomplish the tasks we take responsibility for and why. An individual who comes to our mind, someone who spent a good deal of time trying to master a wide range of skills and challenges, is Benjamin Franklin.
When Ben Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest,” he could have been referring to education and learning in general, but his quote lends meaning to the goals of Pay4SchoolStuff as well in hoping to change the way parent group leaders think about running their PTA/PTO’s and Booster clubs. We strongly believe that volunteering your time and expertise to help your child’s school is one of the most rewarding, altruistic and giving things a parent can do. But we also know it can be one of the most frustrating, lonely, unrecognized and unappreciated endeavors one can do. That’s why we have continued to enhance our online system to provide a full management tool for schools and school-affiliated groups—no forms, easy, customized payments; communication functions; robust, real-time reporting; and more. Save your time and your parents’ time by investing in the knowledge of the most efficient online system available today.
Ben Franklin was way ahead of his time in analyzing leadership, education, and management issues. Don’t lose any more of your precious time running your parent group in circles.
