Consider maturity differences. In middle school, the most successful events are designed with students’ ages in mind. In other words, just because an event was successful in the elementary school PTO world does not guarantee it will work the same way in middle school. There is also a noticeable difference in maturity within the student body itself to keep in mind. A 6th grader in September is more like an elementary student, and an 8th grader in May is looking ahead to high school. So it’s a good idea to organize separate PTO events that cater to different groups of students so that their own interests and needs are met.
