Letter from the PTSA President

Dear Madison community-

Happy November! Our next PTSA meeting will be held in the Auditorium on Tuesday, November 14th at 6:30 pm prior to Pyramid Parent Speaker Night with author and long-time educator, Rick Wormeli.  Mr. Wormeli is an advocate for practical and compelling educational change and is deeply committed to ensuring that the educational process reflects needed transitions in instructional practice to prepare our students for the world after high school.  He understands our skilled-based mastery learning framework, grading practices, and Mad Wings Program.  Mr. Wormeli brings a wealth of experience and research-based expertise to our conversations.  For more information on Mr. Wormeli, please visit his website.  

Staff Appreciation Events: We have an amazing staff at Madison and the PTSA hosts teacher and staff appreciation events throughout the year.  We will be hosting a Fall Treats event on Wednesday, November 15th, and need both donations and volunteers as this is a 100% donated event.  Thank you to all those who have volunteered for or donated to our staff appreciation events this year.  If you would like to learn more and get involved with this committee, please email our wonderful chairs Angie Gutenson, Nina Somerville, and Michelle Fraser at [email protected].  

Academic Boosters: Academic Boosters will partner with Student Services to offer a practice ACT exam on Saturday, November 18th.  This exam is geared toward sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  The cost of the practice ACT exam is $20, after which students will receive a detailed summary of their results, including areas of strength and areas for improvement.  You can register with this link.

Fall Giving Day will be held Saturday, November 18th from 10 am-12 pm in the cafeteria.  We are looking for volunteers, especially bilingual volunteers, to help distribute free food, school supplies, and household items to our families in need.  Please consider signing up to help spread some joy this holiday season.  

And it is not too late to join the PTSA or support our efforts through a financial contribution.  We greatly appreciate the much needed support and generosity of our Madison community!

Thank you,
Regan Morgan
