What does PTA Stand for?
The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is an organization comprised of parents and teachers working together to promote the education and welfare of our children. In support of this goal, we raise funds and provide volunteer time to furnish our students with activities and supplies not funded by the school district. Donations of time, money, or goods are always gratefully accepted.
Who Should Join?
We encourage every family to join Madison PTA! It costs just a small amount to join but your subscription goes a long way towards being a voice in your child's education and supporting our many programs. You can even sign up other members of your family, such as grandparents, aunts and uncles, to show their support too!
Our annual membership drive begins on July 1 and continues throughout the school year until June 30th.
