Volunteer to launch Coding Club
Are your students interested in a coding club? Committed parent helpers are needed to launch a coding club for the 2019-2020 school year. Email Shannon Klopfenstein (Shannon@klopfensteins.com) if you are able to help. Ideally parents who have a coding background and would be interested in presenting a lesson will volunteer, but any parent volunteer to help keep the club time on task are much appreciated.
Save the date - Trivia Night 2019
Trivia Night is Sat., November 2, 2019. This adults-only fundraiser supports the PTA with all its proceeds. Trivia Night is a chance to mingle with friends and make new friends during a night of food, drinks, silent auction and trivia.
Sign-up to join the committee to help in various ways, from planning, getting auction prizes, communicating and helping the actual night of the event. Email email@example.com if you are interested. Our goal is to have a meeting before school is out for summer to get a jump start on planning.

If you are looking to donate anything such as clothing, home stuff, toys, electronics, etc. please consider giving to Family Tree Resale on Geneva and Main in Wheaton (by the Jewel).
For every bag of donations they receive on behalf of Madison School, Family Tree will in turn donate a voucher to our school for a family to use to purchase items. Just drive around to the side door, walk in, and someone will help you unload your donations. Be sure to mention Madison School.
