The affidavits must be completed and filed with schools by Monday, December 18, 2017. Affidavits are printed on yellow paper and were sent home earlier. An online, printable copy of the 2017-18 affidavit can also be found at the school system’s website (www.cowetaschools.net) or can be picked up at any Coweta school. The completed forms must be notarized, and all schools employ Notaries Public for parents' convenience. If you have any questions, please call us, and our office staff will be happy to assist you.

Amy Brandon, PTSO President

Welcome to Madras! The purpose of our PTSO is to help improve our school by combining the efforts of parents, students, and teachers. We invite you to join PTSO to help make our school a better place to work and learn! Our fundraising efforts have benefited a variety of projects in the past including school building improvements, teacher instructional requests, equipment for the fine arts department, instructional technology purchases, and athletic programs. This year, our goal is to raise enough funds to purchase an electronic sign in front of the school to replace the old signage. We hope to reach this goal by the end of the school year. We ask that each family join PTSO with a $12.00 contribution. (Checks should be made payable to Madras PTSO.)

We also need your volunteer time! If you are interested in assisting with any of the areas below, please print the form below linked beneath, and indicate in the appropriate section. Return the form to the MMS front office or to your child's homeroom teacher. You will be contacted as the events take place.

There are many opportunities to serve through PTSO:

  • Snack n Chat (Monthly)
  • School Store (rotational schedule
  • Teacher Luncheons
  • Media Center Weekly Help
  • Veterans Day Program
  • Black History Month Program Reception
  • Decoration for Receptions/Luncheons
  • Book Fairs (Fall and Spring)
  • Battle of the Books
  • School Pictures (Fall)
  • Scoliosis Screening (One time event)
  • Landscaping and Beautification

MMS PTSO Annual Project: Electronic Sign in Front of the School

If you wish to make a donation to this, please send it in with your child address to the MMS PTSO. Contact Amy Brandon at amysbrandon97@gmail.com, if you are interested in joining our team!

Thanks in advance for your support!
