Toils of a PTA Treasurer

It's that time of the month again. As treasurer of the PTA I have the privilege of counting each month's pizza money. Pizza Day is what the kids look forward to once a month...a hot lunch at school. It's also the day that parents look forward to since they don't have to think about what to make for tomorrow's lunch.

I, on the other hand, dread Pizza Day...why? Because it is my job to count almost $1,300 in toonies, loonies, quarters, dimes, nickels and even pennies. In addition, it has to be rolled with the account number printed on them. It's very time consuming and it even takes the bank teller almost 10 min. to count.

Why do I do it? Guilt! I feel bad if I don't. I don't want to be known as the lazy, uninvolved parent who doesn't care what happens in their kids' school. Although it wouldn't be hard to blend into the crowd of parents who really don't care to volunteer or take part in their kids' school.
