About Madison PTA
Madison Elementary PTA has been positively impacting the lives of children and families in our Redondo Beach community since 1957. We are proud to be part of the Redondo Beach Council of PTAs and Thirty-third District PTA within California State PTA, and proud to be a 2017-2019 National PTA School of Excellence.
Whether you are new to PTA, returning to see what is changing or happening within our school community, or looking for a way to get involved. We invite you here, to learn the impact of our PTA and the importance of your involvement.
WHAT IS PTA?
The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is an organization comprised of parents, teachers, school staff and the community working together to positively impact the lives of all children and families. We build strong, collaborative relationships between parents, teachers and the school, which in turn provides a successful learning community for our kids. Through PTA sponsored programs, meeting and events, we provide opportunities to build our community and provide input and support around decisions affecting our school.OurMadison PTA is made up of hard-working parents, teachers, and staff who pool their talents to provide practical support for our school and our kids. Our 2018-19 Executive Board & Chairs all volunteered to provide leadership this year, so get to know them, and feel free to ask them if you have questions. We are all here to do good things for the students and families at Madison Elementary!
WHY SUPPORT PTA
When we support the PTA, we show our children the importance of teamwork, volunteerism, and working together toward a common goal. We become familiar with the teachers and staff, which build community and keeps us informed of what's happening in our school. That's why we encourage everyone, including your students to join Madison PTA!
Also, your annual PTA membership helps us meet our school’s needs that are outside the scope of their budget. Plus, it gives you a voice at our school and entitles you to some amazing member-only perks available at capta.org/join/member-perks/
PTA Membership does not require you to volunteer, but when you do go that extra step and help with any PTA program, you set a fine example for our kids and greatly encourage our teachers and staff.
