Welcome Back!

Welcome to the start of another great school year at Madera Elementary! We are excited for the new year to begin, old friendships to grow and new ones to come.

Thanks to our community efforts, Madera is a Gold Ribbon School! We are recognized for many reasons: our innovative teaching strategies, the comprehensive professional development training our teachers receive, our effective enrichment activities, and the many opportunities we provide for parent engagement. Our Madera community works together so our kids receive the comprehensive education they deserve. Your children are thriving because of these efforts, and we look forward to continuing them.

By volunteering at Madera both in the classroom and beyond, one will get to enjoy interacting with students and teachers, become friends with families, and accomplish something that truly makes a difference in our children. We guarantee the time given to our school community will be worth it — and fun! Any time you give to Madera makes a difference in our children’s lives.

The PTA and MEF are looking forward to continuing its tradition of providing enrichment programs and events for our community. Without parent funding and participation, our school would lack programs and events such as garden, art, music, basic school supplies, field trips, Pizza in the Park and the Winter Sing.

Join us in helping support all of our children in the Madera Community.

One School. One Community. One Team.
