Pre-order School Supplies

The Velma Hamilton Middle School PTO has partnered with 1st Day School Supplies so you can  pre-order your students' school supplies!  The supply kit comes packaged with everything on the school's supply list and is delivered to VHMS over the summer. 

Plus it's a fundraiser for the VHMS PTO, with part of the proceeds helping the PTO fund the work it does for our students, staff, and school! If you have any questions, please contact Sherry at  sherylnieds@sbcglobal.net .

Order from 1st Day School Supplies  by June 30!
Equity Snack Pantries
Volunteers Needed for Next School Year
Would you like to help purchase snacks and keep an Equity Snack Pantry stocked at one of our schools? The Wellness Council is looking for volunteers (preferably members of a low-cost club, such as Costco) for next school year (2019–2020). Depending on how many volunteers we have, you might be asked to make 6 trips a year to purchase snacks & deliver to one of our schools. Funds come from a PTO budget specifically for this (thanks, PTO!).
If interested, please contact Yvonne Wullschleger, bilingual resource specialist at Franklin (& Randall) ( ywullschlege@madison.k12.wi.us ) or Katie Larsen-Klodd, social worker at Randall ( klarsenklodd@madison.k12.wi.us ). Thanks for considering!
The Randall Garden Needs You
The Randall Garden needs guest caretakers to keep it thriving this summer! If your family is interested, please sign up for a week to garden this summer, and we'll send you the information you'll need to tend the garden. Thank you!

~The Randall Garden Committee
Please Check the Lost and Found
Be sure to check both Franklin and Randall’s lost and found areas before the end of the year! All items left unclaimed will be sorted and donated over summer break.
