You can sign up for these opportunities and more - email Lizette McNellis at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Multicultural Day Makes an Impact for Madison Students
We are looking for more volunteers to bring knowledge and personal experiences to help with next year's events. Big events or small lessons - we're open to it all and would love to represent the cultures we have in our Madison community.
- Do you speak another language?
- Do you have roots in another country?
- Would you like to share a passion or expertise?
- Is there a holiday you celebrate that you can educate about?
Email Adrianna at email@example.com with any interest to join the multicultural committee, or share your culture with the Madison community in 2023/2024.
Go Green Club Makes Madison More Beautiful
Thank you to the Go Green club for bringing some beauty to our school and our homes. The club ended the year by making wildflower seed bombs for moms for Mother’s Day and planting a ginkgo tree out front!
Morton Arboretum staff and former Madison parents donated and assisted with the planting of the tree. Students helped with the planting and can enjoy the tree for many years to come.
Madison Paw Prints Yearbooks Distributed on June 1
Congratulations to Kajol Kumar! Her artwork will be featured on the cover of the 2022-2023 Madison Paw Prints yearbook. Thank you to all the 5th graders who submitted amazing entries, and to all the students who voted.
Upcoming Wheaton Events Help Fundraise for Madison PTA
Madison community, thank you for continuing to support our PTA all year long. From the Fun Run and Butterbraid events to Trivia Night and the restaurant Cook’s Night Off events, thank you for the many ways that you give back.
We have two more opportunities in partnership with the Wheaton Park District for you, to save money while supporting our school:
1) Register for the Cosley Zoo Run for the Animals event taking place on June 3 and use the code MADISON23 when registering. You get $5 off your registration and $5 goes to the Madison PTA. *The discount code is only available for the 5k and 10k race option.*
2) Cream of Wheaton June 1-3 is a time-honored tradition in our community. Avoid the line and pre-order carnival wristbands for $25 (vs. on-site for $30). The PTA keeps $3 per wristband purchased and will be distributed May 24-25. An order form was sent home in backpacks, or you can go online.
Keep Your Eyes Out - School Supply Ordering Information Coming Soon!
Look for fliers going home in backpacks next week!
