Parent Teacher Organization

First PTO Meeting for 2016-2017

Fall Conferences are righ around the corner. Look for ways to show our teachers appreciation through meals during this time.  Sign ups will be coming out soon or reach out to Kristin Drews or Lisa Mueller. 

Harvest Festival is Friday, October 7th from 5-7!  Thanks to Shannon Savage and all the volunteers for their hard work.  This is sure to be a great time for all!



The First PTO Meeting for 2016-2017 is tomorrow, September 8th from 7-8 PM in the MES cafeteria.  Childcare is provided.  This is a great way to hear what is going on in our building and in the district, as well as find out how to get more involved.  The PTO can only be successful with your help. If you have not already joined, please print the Membership and Volunteer forms from this page and bring them to the meeting or send them to the office via the Wednesday Folders.  Joining the PTO does not mean that you have to volunteer, although there are a wide variety of opportunities, it is just one way to support the great things going on at MES!  

Future meetings will be held the first WEDENSDAY (this is a change from previous years) of every month at 9:15 AM in the cafeteria. 


Madeira Elementary School PTO It is hard to believe it  but next Friday, May 6th, is our last PTO meeting of the school year! Please join us at 9:15am in the MES cafeteria for some coffee and treats to discuss all that is happening at the end of this school year. We will have a performance by the 4th Grade Singers and we will also have a send off for Mr. Weber and Mr. Kramer to thank them for all they have done. Childcare will be provided. Hope to see you there :)
