All are Welcome: PTA Meeting, November 17
Veterans Day at Madison
As in years past, Madison Elementary will continue our growing tradition to host a drive-by parade route to honor our United States Veterans.
Do you have family members, neighbors, coworkers, and friends that were in the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, National Guard, Coast Guard, or Marines? If you know someone that served in our military, ask them to be our honored guest on Friday, November 11, and to RSVP TODAY so we can be prepared to honor them appropriately. The parade route will begin at 11:00 AM. RSVP by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (630) 682-2095.
Additionally, we will be taking up a collection for our local Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans in Wheaton. We will be accepting donations of the below until November 11. Students can place them on the tables in the front hallway. Your generous donations are very appreciated!
