Thank you to our Madison Community

Thank you to all of our Madison Community, for coming together to raise funds for all of our students! We beat our goal by $4000, to bring in over $32,000 and we’re still counting. We have lots of people to thank, please see below for all the parents that helped, the teachers that gave their time, and the businesses that supported us with donations. Of course, a big thank you to those that attended this Raise the Paddle and gave generously and heartily.

Ms. Riach pulled out her extraordinary powers of persuasion and worked some mental math, as she became our auctioneer for a night. Mr. Gerston put together a beautiful slide show of our children, showing off who we were really there to support. And Dr. Gary gave an impassioned plea to donate so the PTSA can supply the staff with items and support that is just not available in the school’s yearly budget. Thanks to these Madison Leaders for showing their Bulldog Spirit.

Many, many teachers contributed by offering Teacher Experiences for our students, outings and events that show the interests of the teachers, a little insight for students.

On behalf of the PTSA Board, Fundraising Committee, Madison Staff, we are deeply appreciative of your support of our students.

Fiona Preedy, Madison PTSA President & Erika Borges, Madson PTSA VP Fundraising

PTSA February General Meeting

PTSA General Meeting

Wednesday, February 6th  at 7 pm, Madison Library

Please join us for our February General Meeting. We will vote on the minutes from October, and hear updates from chairs. We will vote in a nominating committee, we’ll accept members from the floor. We are hoping for a great fundraising success at our 2019 Tailgate and Celebrate on Saturday, February 2nd, and we’ll hear the results from our fundraising chair.  Here is the PTSA General Meeting Agenda, and the meeting could run until 8:30 pm.

Dr. Gary will give an update on Madison, including information about the school’s budgeting process for next year and the multi-cultural assemblies that have been happening, and how Black Lives Matter in school is being taught at Madison.

We have also invited Grace Bennett, previous Madison PTSA and current WSHS PTSA Legislative Chair, to give a short presentation and answer questions about the levies that are on the ballot for the special February Election.

Questions for the Meeting – we know that it is difficult to come out to meetings mid-week.  If you are just not able to make the meeting, but have questions that we can address at the meeting, we have created a Question Form for you to fill out, which can be anonymous or have your contact info included.  Or you can ask questions by sending an email to our PTSA president at
