Letter from the PTSA President

Our last PTSA meeting for the 2018-2019 school year was held on May 13th. We took this time to recognize many of our volunteers and especially those with graduating seniors.  Huge thanks and appreciation to our outgoing PTSA officers Marcy Davidson and Monica Anschel.  Thank you also to our “graduating” Madison Pantry co-chairs Rossana Carney and Anne-Stuart Kirkhorn for their incredible efforts.

We have elected the following to serve as our PTSA officers for next year:
President: Beth Eachus
1st Vice President: Sonja Marsden
2nd Vice President: Ellen MacGregor
Treasurer: Tarah Weaver
Secretary: Sarah Helmicki

Our Madison pantry has been generously supported by our Madison community and we are planning to expand support for our students and families in need this summer.  If you would like to help or support these efforts, please contact me at president@jmhsptsa.org.  Additionally, we are collecting new or gently used school supplies for our students for next year.  There is a collection box currently in the front office at Madison HS.

Any of the following would be appreciated:

  • 3-ring binders (1-1/2  or 3 inch) and Dividers for binders
  • Loose-leaf lined paper
  • Composition or spiral notebooks
  • Pens and Pencils (wooden or mechanical)
  • Erasers and Pencil pouches/boxes/holders
  • 2-Pocket Folders

We are also looking for volunteers to help with our All Night Grad (ANG) celebration on June 7-8, 2019 from 11:00p.m. to 4:30a.m. at Oak Marr RECenter.  We would greatly appreciate any help.  Click here to volunteer and/or here to donate food.

Through the support and the generosity of the Madison community, the PTSA has been able to provide funds so that the Madison teachers and staff have been able to attend education and learning conferences.  We were privileged to host both staff and students at our last two PTSA meetings who have shared how these conferences have impacted their teaching as well as their learning.

Thank you to all that volunteered or donated to our Teacher Luncheon on Wednesday, April 24th and our GRAB & GO Breakfast in May.  It was much enjoyed by the Madison staff.  Huge thanks to Kebra Krol for chairing all our teacher events this year!  Donations and volunteers are still needed for the Baccalaureate celebration in June.  Please sign up if you can here.

A final thank you to all the students and staff that participated in our school-wide project involving Mindful Memorial.  More information on Mindful Memorial is shared at the following link:  http://www.mindfulmemorialday.org

Thank you for your continued support!  Please let me know if you are interested in getting more involved at Madison.  And thank you for a wonderful year and enjoy your summer!

Beth Eachus
PTSA President
