Get Involved

The PTA has been able to support many wonderful programs for West Madison because of our strong parent backing. There are several things you can do to make sure the PTA will continue to successfully support West Madison: 
  • Join our PTA: This is one of the easiest ways to show your support for West Madison. See the MEMBERSHIP tab to find out how to join our organization.
  • Participate in our ONE yearly large fundraiser: This year we are hosting a Fun Run to raise money.  If fundraising is not your thing, we totally understand. But, we ask that you consider making a monetary donation in place of your fundraising contribution.
  • Attend Spirit Nights at designated restaurants throughout the year. Many restaurants in this area work with West Madison to share with us a percentage of profits earned on a designated night. The higher the attendance at Family Night, the more money the PTA receives back. Watch for announcements on our web page and Facebook page, and also via Notify Me and flyers.
  • Volunteer: Volunteers are the main reason our PTA is able to do all the wonderful things it does. Your time and talents are valuable resources that help make West Madison Elementary a great environment for our students. We would love to have you join us and be a part of the great things happening at West Madison. Plus, volunteering is fun!
