PTA Announcements

  • Madera PTA voted to endorse Measure K – you should too!
    Please get the word out to friends and neighbors about voting YES on Measure K on June 5th. Yes on K means: students in elementary schools will continue to have small classes, and student in the middle schools and high schools will see their class sizes decrease. – Without Measure K passing you will surely see class sizes increase!
