The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) maintains a forum in which parents, teachers, and community members work together to enrich the children’s minds, hearts, and character.
We are committed to funding activities and programs that enhance the students’ education and welfare, as well as supporting the teachers, administration, and staff throughout the year.
By joining the PTO, you demonstrate your commitment to upholding and advancing excellent standards at Madden Elementary.
You may join PTO at any time during the school year.
To receive a t-shirt with your membership, the deadline to join for each year will be announced in August.
PTO membership is an annual choice, and does not auto-renew.
T-shirts should be delivered to students' classrooms the week of October 17, following the annual spirit wear sale.
You will receive a Husky Blue t-shirt in this year's theme design, in the size you specified when you joined.
We encourage our members to volunteer if they are able, but recognize that everyone has many demands on their time.
PTO coordinates with the school for 2 room parents per classroom. Prospective room parents must complete an FBISD Background Check and be members in good standing of the PTO. You may contact your child's teacher or our Room Parent Coordinators (firstname.lastname@example.org) to ask if an additional room parent is needed.
REMEMBER! Even if the Room Parent positions are filled, you may still ask your child's teacher how you may provide assistance to the classroom.
The PTO maintains standing committees, including (but not limited to) Teacher Appreciation, Yearbook, and the Learning Garden, which all need volunteers throughout the year.
PTO also hosts spirit wear and membership tables at many school activities during the year.
Fundraisers such as the Raffle / Carnival in March will require many volunteers for both planning and the day of the activity.
Lastly, there may be projects that various teachers request assistance with for activities throughout the year.
PTO funds are spent in support of Madden students and staff.
During the 2022-23 schoolyear, PTO spent over $45,000, with the bulk paying for field trips, Classroom Enhancement Funds (classroom supplies and STEM consumables not provided in the FBISD budget), Teacher Appreciation activities, and the two holiday parties.
The PTO raises funds in a variety of ways.
PTO receives a percentage of sales from restaurants or other local businesses.
