Whiteboards and Display Cases would probably not be on your back-to-school list, but for Parent-Teacher Organizations, (PTO) they certainly are. PTOÂs best known for their school bake sales are spending thousands of dollars on fixtures normally purchased by school administrators, and they are doing it at companies like US Markerboard.
ÂSales to PTOÂs grew 33% this year aloneÂ, says company President Scott Newman. ÂWe now have programs specifically geared toward Parent Teacher Organizations.Â
PTOÂs have decided to take things into their own hands when it comes to making sure their children have what they need to be successful. ÂThey are coming to us with wish lists for everything including whiteboards, school desks, display cases and cafeteria tables.Â
US Markerboard is the leading online retailer for dry erase whiteboards, catering to thousands of public and private institutions as well as some of the worldÂs largest companies and educational institutions such as Boston University, NASA, Alcoa, California Closets, and The Gillette Company. Most recently, US Markerboard was recognized on NBCÂs The Today Show for their assistance in helping to outfit a needy Brooklyn, New York school with school desks, teacher desks, chairs, whiteboard easels and a trophy display case. ÂWe were asked by NBC to be part of this important project so we stepped in to helpÂ, says Scott Newman.
