  1. I know you realy meant this……
    Paid Time Off or Personal Time Off (PTO) is a policy in some employee handbooks that provides a bank of hours in which the employer pools sick days, vacation days, and personal days that allows employees to use as the need or desire arises. Generally PTO hours cover everything from planned vacations to sick days, and are becoming more prevalent in the field of human resource management. Unlike more traditional leave plans, PTO plans are more flexible because they don’t distinguish employee absences from personal days, vacation days, or sick days. Upon employment, the company determines how many PTO hours will be allotted per year and a “rollover” policy. Some companies let PTO hours accumulate for only a year, and unused hours disappear at year-end.[1] Some PTO plans may also accommodate unexpected or unforeseeable circumstances such as jury duty, military duty, and bereavement leave.[2] PTO bank plans typically do not include short-term or long-term disability leave, workers compensation, family and medical leave, sabbatical, or community service leave.[3]
    It is unclear as to when PTO bank-type plans were first being utilized in the workforce. In a 2010 study conducted by WorldatWork, 44% of 387 companies surveyed said they started using PTO bank-type plans prior to year 2000.[4]

  2. Lets get real.PTO stands for PARENT, Teacher Orginazation. You people are really something. These games are to raise money for the kids of Lakewood public schools.

    What?? PTO stand for Parent Teacher Organization. A suggestion for you~ When you research items on Wikipedia and then copy and paste it without proper notation {known as plagiarism – (noun) the practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own. Source:} You come across as very unknowledgable.
    Why did you use the first entry that was available? “patent and trademark office”? Thought you could get more attention and stir this up with what appears to be a teacher bashing article?
    If you want to know what PTO stands for read down a little further on the search site and click on
    Here is the mission statement -copied and pasted- from their website:
    “Our Mission

    Ok, so here’s the thing. You are a good person. You try to do the right thing. But sometimes you need help depending on what that “thing” is. So, for parent groups, this is what we do. We help parent groups find resources and tools to succeed.

    Most parent leaders are so busy these days. They want to be involved in their child’s school. The depth of that involvement is a little different for everyone, but the end goal is usually the same: Contributing to the best environment and experience of their child’s growth at school.

    It may be slightly different for each, but Involvement is the key word here: The “Why.” Yet the “Who, What, When, How” can be the tricky part. That is where we come in. The function of the National Parent Teacher Organization is to help pull resources, ideas, systems and knowledge to help you and your group understand Who Can Help; What is the Process; When Should You Do What; and How.

    But, before any of these questions can be fully answered, you need to understand the role and vision of your school, your school’s district, teacher and principal. So be sure to work with them and get approval for anything and everything first.

    Next, Learn. Talk to other parent group leaders. Research. Collaborate. Utilize tools that are available to you. And this is where we can be of service. Our partners and collective information can be a great place for you to grow and accomplish your duties and mission faster.

    Good Luck, know that we are here to help you. Again, always work and get approval from your school and district. We Thank You for your positive part you play in your child’s school life!”

    “knowledge is a mighty mighty weapon” …… Arm yourself accordingly!

  4. Some people really need to get a life. This was a fundraiser for our kids,who cares for what team someone plays for. (P) parent (T)teacher (O) organization.

    I don’t know what PTO you are talking about but the PTO that this game was raising funds for is a public school PTO. This stands for Parent Teacher Organization and it is parents, teachers and other members of the school community working together to benefit the public school students in various ways, such as paying for field trips, (which, by the way the Lakewood board of ed DOES NOT pay for) and for other activities FOR THE STUDENTS of the school.
