Madison High School Food Pantry

Madison High School and the PTSA continue to work together to provide a Food Pantry for students and families in need. And we need your support!  We distribute approx 30-40 bags of food each week to Madison students (and their families) in need.  This school year, we have also provided school supplies as well as winter clothing to our students in need. Through a partnership with CHO, we were able to provide bicycles for those that needed them to get to work and school.  And we provided approx 125 bags personal hygiene items to students before winter break. We also have partnered with BRAWS to provide feminine hygiene products each month to students in need.  
 

THANK YOU to all who have supported this effort!

Here are ways that you can still help:  Purchase items needed on a continuing basis and deliver to Madison HS front office, order items directly from Amazon, they will ship to the school, or make an on-line donation.  

JMHS PTSA Parent Program: Preventing Risky Behavior 2/20

Risky teen behavior concerns all parents. This program will review current trends in teen substance abuse, strategies for engaging students in discussions about their choices and signs that your child or their friends are involved with illegal substances. Wednesday, February 20th, 7:00-9:00 pm in Warhawk Hall.
Presented by Brian Maslowski, FCPS Prevention Teacher.

Mock ACT and SAT

Registration for Mock SAT and ACT tests is open.

Mock SAT: Saturday, February 2, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Mock ACT: Saturday, February 23, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

The JMHS PTSA Academic Boosters is proud to partner with Educational Connections and offer full-length practice ACT and SAT exams at James Madison High School.   Mock tests assist in determining which test is right for your student (appropriate for 10th and 11th grade).  They also provide a baseline score to identify natural strengths and weaknesses in a simulated testing environment. 

All students will receive a full score report and an optional free consultation after the mock test. With more and more colleges no longer requiring the essay portion (and the subjective nature of the scoring) the mock test will continue to offer the essay but Educational Connections won’t score it. Students can still practice taking the essay under timed conditions and are welcome to take their essay home with them.  Contact Academic Boosters chair Ellen MacGregor with questions – and please join Academic Boosters!  Our final mock testing sessions will take place in March. 

All Night Graduation Celebration Volunteers Needed

We are looking for a few volunteers to help with planning the All Night Grad (ANG) celebration.  Many sub-committees make up our planning group.  We are looking for help with Fundraising Letters, Food Coordination, ANG Chaperones, and Volunteer Coordinator.

Underclassmen parents, in particular, are needed especially to carry knowledge forward and also because senior parents are at graduation.

Consider helping to make ANG 2019 a success by contacting Cathy Wasilewski at allnightgrad@jmhsptsa.org.
