Looking for a Few Good Volunteers
The PTA is in need of volunteers for a few key positions to kick off the new school year:
- Meet and Treat Chair and Volunteers (Need at least 2): Help coordinate our big back to school event on August 15! Pass out treats to hungry students and help parents find their way around Madison and get to know other families.
- Communications (Need 4): Keep everyone up to date on PTA happenings by helping to manage our Google Apps (primarily Google Drive and email accounts) and website. Work closely with the Madison Memos editor and PTA Secretary to post important announcements to Facebook. Most of the website and Google updates occur over the summer/at the beginning of the school year.
- New Family Welcoming (Need 10): Give a warm welcome to new Madison families by delivering Madison yard signs on August 16.
- Spirit Wear (Need 3): Influence the fashion of Madison students by coordinating the spirit wear shop - typically open at the beginning of the school year and again around the holidays. Coordinate the design, order, distribution and sale of Madison Spirit Wear.
- Picture Day (Need 2): Help things go smoothly on picture day in late September. Escort students to photo session. Chairman acts as liaison between vendor and Madison School. Helps ensure timely delivery of photo packages typically by late October.
We also appreciate any interest you have in the following committees! (To read more about each committee, visit the Madison PTA website HERE). You can either sign up for a specific committee or in an as-needed role, and we'll be in touch to help you find the right fit!

School Supplies Now Available for 2022/2023 School Year
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 families are encouraged to order online at www.educationalproducts.com/shoppacks; however, paper orders will also be accepted by request (flyers went home in backpacks this week!). School supply kits will be delivered to your child's classroom in time for Meet and Treat. Orders are available now through June 20th (with late orders available June 21 through July 6).
- Go to Madison's link on Educational Products HERE and enter school ID - MAD123.
- There are step by step instructions to complete your order.
- Headphones are available and optional - and you can add them if you click to page two.
- Keep your online confirmation as your receipt. School supplies will be delivered to your child's classroom before school starts.
Any questions - email Brittany Zeller.
