Madison Junior School PTO
Dear MJS Community
We hope this letter finds you and your family well. While many things around us have changed, the MJS PTO commitment to support our teachers, students and community continues. With that in mind we wanted to share how your valuable contributions have been put to work over this time of uncertainty. The MJS PTO was able to:
Donate to the “Thank Madison Public Schools” GoFundMe that provided town-wide gift certificates to teachers and ALL school personnel thanking them for all they have done in keeping our students on track.
Help Mr. Erdreich continue his great work making PPE protective shields, provide our MJS Media Center with much needed EBooks, and purchase a white board for Mrs. St. Jacques to better enable her virtual art lessons.
Donate all the excess snacks and water collected from events like the All Grade Dance. Snacks were donated to the incredible group providing “Weekend Meals for Madison Students in Need”. Water bottles were contributed to the Newark Water Coalition which provides water to Newark neighborhoods with high levels of lead in their drinking water.
Recognize and thank our Administrative Professionals Mrs.Talerico and Mrs. Damiano on National Administration Day for all the work they do throughout the year to keep us organized and our kids safe. What would we do without them?
Participate in the first virtual 6th Grade Orientation. It was a great success! We look forward to welcoming all of the 5th grade families from around the district to MJS in the fall.
Lastly, we want to recognize Dr. Caruso for his leadership these past three years. THANK YOU, Dr. Caruso, from the bottom of our hearts. We wish you well in your new endeavors.
The PTO will continue to support the MJS faculty, staff, and parent/student community in any way that we can. Going into the 2020-2021 year, we are just not sure what the needs of the community are so we are open to ALL ideas that would benefit anyone in the MJS community. PLEASE reach out with any and all ideas as well as volunteer your time to join us. There are big and small jobs, and one is right for you!! If interested, please reach out to Sandra Silbaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
