Letter from the PTSA President

Dear Madison Community,

We held our last PTSA meeting of the year on May 18th.  Our Principal Greg Hood, Director of Student Services Tim Buckley, and parents shared information and we also discussed All Night Grad, our Madison Food Pantry, Triple I awards and PTSA Scholarships as well as events and activities planned for our Seniors.

We voted on our 2020-2021 Executive Board and I am proud to present our slate of officers:  
President: Christopher Lande
Vice President: Sonya Marsden
Vice President: Beth Eachus
Treasurer: Tarah Weaver
Secretary: Sarah Lundquist

And huge thanks to our outgoing PTSA board:
President: Beth Eachus
Vice President: Sonya Marsden
Vice President: Ellen MacGregor
Treasurer: Tarah Weaver
Secretary: Sarah Helmicki

We would also like to acknowledge and thank Kebra Krol for her tremendous efforts in chairing our teacher and staff appreciation efforts for the last 6 years. Thank you also to the following PTSA volunteers as they “graduate” with their students:
Cathy Wasilewski – All Night Grad Chair
Sylvia Martin Estes – Baccalaureate Chair
Monica Anschel – former PTSA Vice President  
Ann Kuhlkin – Loyalty Awards
Jenny Merrill – Directory
Shannon Sieff – All Night Grad
Eileen Sciuto – All Night Grad

I personally want to thank Ellen MacGregor for leading Academic Boosters and Sonya Marsden for coordinating our Parent Education Programs, our PTSA Scholarships and the Triple I awards.  I also want to thank Sarah Helmicki for serving as our PTSA secretary for the last two years and to Tarah Weaver for all her efforts as Treasurer.

And I also want to thank our entire community for your support of our Madison Pantry and Outreach programs for our students in need and their families.  The need has increased greatly and we are currently providing over 70 grocery cards to students who are food insecure and their families.  There is more information on our Outreach initiatives and how to support these efforts in this edition of Mad Memos.

It has been an incredible honor for me to serve as PTSA President and I am grateful that I will have the opportunity to continue to support the PTSA Board and the Madison community as Vice President and Chair of Academic Boosters next year. 

If you are interested in becoming more involved in the PTSA in any way, as always, please contact us at president@jmhsptsa.org.
It has been an amazing year with many successes and also many challenges. Thank you for your continued support of the Madison community –

Beth Eachus
JMHS PTSA President
