Pre-order 2018-2019 school supplies

Are you already dreading the school supply rush in August? Do you hate the thought of running all over town to find the right school supplies? Let the PTA help you. The PTA is now selling school supply kits for next year. This is offered as a convenience for parents, not as a PTA fundraiser.

All Madison students should have brought home a school supply order form. If you did not receive one, you can print one out from the Madison PTA website. Paper orders are due by May 25, while online orders can be made through July 15. Please note, sales tax will be added to all online orders.

All families are encouraged to order online at; however, paper orders will also be accepted. School supply kits will be delivered to your child's classroom by August 20. If you have any questions, please email Kathryn Medanic at

Get orthodontic services, support the Madison playground fund

Bauer Dentistry and Orthodontics, owned by our own Bauer Madison family, have generously offered to donate $250 to our new playground fund for every single new patient that starts braces or Invisalign at their office between January 1 and May 31! Eighty new patients could bring Madison $20,000 toward building a new, accessible playground in the back of school. Their office is located on Roosevelt road in Wheaton. If you or someone you know is looking for these services, check them out and support the Madison playground fund!
