Back to School Drive

Providing Enrichment for the Whole Student

Part of the mission of the Madison PTSA is to provide classroom support when teachers want or need something beyond what is provided by their district supply budgets. Madison’s teachers and staff work hard every year to deliver effective instruction with limited resources. Your generous donations to the Back to School Drive allow the PTSA to boost numerous programs and needs in Madison classrooms:

  • $500
    – Pays for a Writer-in-Residence program for students (two sessions for two different classes)
    – Funds one transformative speaker for a day-long, 1,000+ student workshop
  • $300
    – Buys a class a set of novels for book clubs supporting anti-racism curriculum
    – Funds one Parent/Family Education presentation for the Madison community
  • $150
    – Buys 13 subscriptions to the digital version of Upfront magazine (or other digital news
    magazine) for our Social Studies department
    – Pays for one teacher license to Dr. Catlin Tucker’s Digital/Blended Learning online professional development course
  • $100
    – Buys ten new library books, expanding the Bulldog Reads program
    – Buys a teacher a set of three professional development books focused on Digital/Blended Learning
