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 president@madisonptsa.com.

Highland Park Improvement Club

Join us for an evening of fun, food and fundraising. Our theme is “Tailgate & Celebrate” so wear your favorite team jersey or Madison spirit wear!

Our party at the Highland Park Improvement Club will include:

 

Raise The Paddle: This is our main fundraiser at the event. Just like the elementary school auctions, the auctioneer will ask for parents to raise their paddles to make a monetary donation. Parents raise their bid cards at the amount they wish to donate and we’re done!

Raffle: We’ll raffle off fun items. Tickets are $10 each.

Event: There will be food, adult beverages (Jello-shots are back), beer pong, corn hole and a DJ!

Bottomless Beer Steins are back! Purchase a Madison Bulldog glass beer stein as an add-on with your tickets, for $50 (unlimited refills).  Perfect to take home for your Madison Student, for Root Beer Floats. Only 70 available, so purchase now!

Contact Erika, the Madison Fundraising VP to help, donate, or with any questions!

Direct Drive for the end of 2018

This is a call out to Madison Supporters who may have missed participating in our Back to School Drive – now’s the time to get in that donation before the end of the year!

The Madison PTSA supports our students and staff by making funds available in every classroom and every department!  Teachers have been accessing money from the start of school and continue to find important curriculum and supplies to enhance their teaching, reaching all students.

The PTSA has already sent teachers to professional development, purchased books for teachers and books for students, and helped Ms. Bell realize her vision in the library, with a welcoming sitting area to help students want to read.  These are just a few examples of how your donations are working for our community.

Your year end donation would help us to know that we will be able to continue this work!  We also work with employers that give matching donations.  Any questions can be directed to either the PTSA President –president@madisonptsa.com or the PTSA Treasurers – treasurer@madisonptsa.com,

Thank you!
