Volunteering at Madrona Elementary

The Madrona PTSA believes we are stronger when we work together to support our students, staff, and each other.  We value the diverse skillsets and life experiences that our parents, families, and community members bring to our school, and we strive to make volunteering accessible to all with time and talents to share.  Our goal is to make sure that every Madrona community member knows how to get involved and feels welcome to do so, as much or as little as they want and are able.
