What am I signing up for when I join the PTO? When you join the PTO, you pay an annual membership fee and agree to receive email updates. That’s it!


Membership is now only $10 per family. We know that money is tight during COVID so we are cutting our membership fee in half for the 2020-2021 school year. As a safety measure, we are only accepting online memberships and payment via credit card. Join online here: https://my.cheddarup.com/c/james-madison-elementary-pto  As always, 100% of your membership fee directly supports our students.




Normally, the PTO raises about $30,000 annually to support classroom supplies, online curriculum, community building events and field trips. This year we anticipate that in person community events, field trips and fundraisers will be severely limited. Additionally, we understand that many families have experienced financial hardships during this time and may have limited resources. In response, the PTO plans on reducing our fundraising efforts, supporting free virtual events and focusing funds on online curriculum and distance learning support.

2020-2021 FALL CALENDAR   

 One Virtual Community Event & One Fundraiser. That’s it! We know parents are overwhelmed by supporting student learning at home so we are trying not to add to your heavy workload. We hope you’ll make time in your schedule to participate in these events. If they are successful and supported by our community, we’ll plan more fun for spring.
