Join the PTA. Perks Included!


My name is Suzie Souza and I am the new VP of Membership for the Madera PTA.  I have a daughter Gianna, in 3rd grade and a daughter Mikayla, in 1st grade.  We are looking forward to another great year at Madera.

Our goal this year is 100% participation whether that be through volunteering, joining the PTA, or contributing to direct appeal.  The PTA at Madera supports and funds all of the enrichment programs, such as the Madera Garden, the art program, the music program, and the Madera Running Club.  I am inviting you to join Madera’s PTA. Your valuable input and participation helps us to develop high quality,enriching programs and activities for our students and families. A portion of the membership fee goes to help support the efforts of the larger PTA organization to fund advocacy for all children at the state and national level.

It’s a good way to find out what’s going at the school. You can show your student that you value education by your involvement in the PTA.

Members are the strength of our organization. Active and informed members make positive decisions that affect the welfare and education of our children. Everyone can be a member of the PTA. The more members enrolled in PTA, the more powerful our voice. Our community is our greatest asset.

In addition to all the perks that come along with being a PTA member (Aquarium of the Pacific, Legoland, California Academy of Sciences,  Enterprise, Truecar, Comcast Internet Essentials, Sylvan Learning, Teensafe, Staples), the Executive Board is offering another incentive for the students and teachers.  If we get 350 members to join the PTA this year, the entire Madera student body will get a 20 minute dance party on the lower yard with Ms. Makela and PTA parents.

Please help us reach or exceed our goal by turning in your membership sheet with $15 membership fee. This can be returned in your child’s blue folder or in the membership box in the office.  Thank you to those members who have already joined this year.

Looking forward to a wonderful year!  Please contact me with any questions at
