I first of all want to say how thankful I am for all of you. Everyone who has already given to Madera in one way or another has made an incredible impact on all of the children at Madera!
It’s that time of year again, when we start thinking about our holiday plans and making lists and checking them twice. Don’t forget about giving to the teachers. One nice gift is collective class gift cards. Purchase gift cards through the Madera PTA. Please have your paper order in the office by 3pm on Friday Dec. 2.
You may also e-mail Scrip Chair, Crystal Nie your order if you’d like. Check the November 18 blue folder for list of stores.
Canned Food Drive
Madera is once again collecting canned goods for the Bay Area Rescue Mission. Please send dry food items with your child to school, or drop off in the collection bin across from the office.
Get your end of the year *tax deductible* donations in to Direct Appeal. All the children of Madera benefit when you give. You can now easily donate online through PayPal! Direct Appeal Chair, Nancy Kawase is diligently working to get everyone receipts for your tax records.
On behalf of all the Madera PTA board, I would like to thank you! As a reminder we will be celebrating our Volunteer of the Year at the last PTA meeting of the year in May. If you volunteer at least 3 hours for any event at Madera, you are eligible to win our Grand Prize! (prize details coming soon). Simply fill out a “I contributed my time to Madera” slip located below the bulletin board across from the office. One winner will be drawn at the end of the year.
Best wishes now and always,
