Parent Program: Little Known Secrets of Paying for College

Please join us on Wednesday, October 12th for our first JMHS PTSA Parent Program of the 2022-2023 school year: Little Known Secrets of Paying for College.

The JMHS PTSA is hosting the College Funding Coach on October 12th @ 7 pm in the JMHS Auditorium. This event is for any family wanting to learn how to pay for college (Preschool – High School).

The College Funding Coach was founded in 2002 to help families better understand the complex strategies for paying for college and making higher education more affordable. Planning for these expenses has become essential. Some families have children attending college next year, and others have years to prepare, but the fears of tackling these monumental and rising costs are the same. The College Funding Coach® is here to help families figure out HOW to pay for it and still retire one day. This interactive workshop, Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College, teaches parents the rules of the game when it comes to paying for their child’s education. Please join the James Madison High School PTSA on October 12th @ 7 PMThis is information you can’t afford to miss! Please take a look around our website The College Funding Coach® for helpful resources and information.   

This is a free educational workshop.  Please register by clicking  HERE or on the attached flyer.

Staff Appreciation Committee

The Madison PTSA kicked off the year with our first Hospitality event, our Welcome Back Breakfast. Our amazing Warhawk teachers and staff were treated to yummy sandwiches and bagels from Best Buns and delicious Dunkin Donuts coffee as well as fruit, breakfast goodies and juice donated by parents. Thank you to all who donated and volunteered to make our first event a success.

We also treated our awesome teachers and staff to dinner before Back to School Night, providing delicious sandwich boxes from The Sandwich Shop. Thanks to all who donated gift cards to defray the cost as well as sodas, sparkling waters, and candy. Your effort helped give our teachers an extra boost before greeting parents. Our next hospitality event will be a Tropical Smoothie surprise event for teachers on October 1. Stay tuned for future signup genius alerts to contribute.
