It's never too early to start thinking about making next school year great for you and your kids.

And that's why we've launched this new website. Welcome! Who the heck are we? You can check out our about us page, but basically we're the folks from PTO Today the magazine for school PTOs and PTAs and we're excited to be helping all parents get connected to their kids' educations and their kids' schools.

A few other bloggers and I will be back regularly with thoughts and links and highlights. In the meantime, I'll be trying to make sure my own 4 little ones don't forget everything they learned this year before heading off to school in August. (Summer Amnesia? You can avoid it.)

Take a look around. We'd love to hear what you think, ideas for more ways we can help, and what the heck -- even your own back-to-school tales of woe and wonder. You can use the comments section below to jump into the conversation. Enjoy!
