Back-to-School Drive

October 10, 2017 -Thank you for your donations, we exceeded our Back to School Goal!

Part of the mission of the Madison PTSA is to provide classroom support when teachers want or need something beyond what is provided by their supply budgets. We have consulted with the teachers and staff of Madison and have determined several areas of need. We have agreed to provide assistance in these areas to start the school year:

Science Department - Goal $3000
As the school grows, and we add more types of science, the science department will need new equipment and books.

Thank you - Goal Met!

Fine Arts – Goal $1500
The Art Dept. has requested $1500 to purchase expendable supplies in order to meet the needs of a growing population at Madison. Having adequate materials on hand reduces the limits on the students' creativity. The department would also like to be able to fund art show materials.

Thank you - Goal Met!

Back to Basics – Goal $3000
In the age of technology, budget line items for textbooks and classroom supplies tend to diminish in favor of that technology. Textbooks continue to be an effective teaching tool, however they deteriorate with use and in some cases do not keep up with current curriculum needs. Last year we provided two classroom sets of textbooks. This year we would like to provide at least one more set of 30 books at approximately $100 each, as well as augment any classroom supply shortfalls.

Thank you - Goal Met!

Technology - Goal $3000
Technology is critical to keeping our school and students up to date and competitive in the digital age. One concern with electronic devices is the need for maintenance and repairs. Last year the PTSA supplied 10 new monitors for one computer lab. Future technology needs include toner cartridges and digital camera repairs and/or replacements. Donate $250.00 to fund technology needs.

Thank you - Goal Met!
