NEW! Changing Hands Sale Volunteer Spots open early this year for MES families only!

The Fall Changing Hands Sale is quickly approaching! Save the date for Saturday, September 16 to score some amazing bargains on high end children’s clothing, toys and accessories.

NEW THIS YEAR is early access for MES parents to sign up for volunteer spots for the Changing Hands Sale.Grab the spot that works best for you before the sign-ups are open to the wider world on August 16. Remember that volunteering at the sale will get you a pass to shop the PRE-SALE from 8-9am before the regular shoppers arrive at 9am.

The Changing Hands Sale (held in September and March) is Madeira Elementary’s biggest fundraiser of the year, eliminating the need for students and parents to pound the pavement and knock on doors for other fundraisers throughout the year. It raises thousands of dollars for the PTO and supports numerous programs and supplies for our kids to be able to have such a great MES experience.

The Changing Hands Sale is a HUGE undertaking and we can’t do it without lots of helpers! So please click on the link below and be one of the first in line to grab your volunteer spot.


Back to School Time!

It’s almost that time again!  We hope you all had a wonderful summer with your families, and are getting ready to head back to school in the coming weeks.  The PTO board has been working with MES administration and faculty over the summer to finalize programs for the upcoming year.  Stay tuned…there are a few exciting new changes coming our way to MES this year!  The PTO will be communicating with families via this website, Facebook (find us at MES PTO), Wednesday folders as well as online Wednesday folders this year.

We are hoping for 100% participation in PTO this year, both from our families and our faculty/staff.  Please help us reach our goal, and see how you can become involved in PTO this year.  Joining PTO is simple…just click on the ‘Join MES PTO’ tab at the top of this page, complete the requested information and pay the annual dues of just $15/family via PayPal!  Super easy!
