Join Us March 25 at Blackhawk Church

2020 Adopt-a-School Summit & Community Breakfast

The Adopt-a-School Summit will help you gain perspective on the needs of our schools and how the program works to establish and strengthen school-community partnerships. It is also an opportunity for existing and potential Adopt-a-School partners to network in learning about best practices and the many ways partners are supporting their schools.

The Adopt-a-School program is a dynamic bridge between schools and the community.  It is an easy and efficient way to invest community resources in our schools, with the goal of expanding educational opportunities for all Madison public school scholars.

Interested in learning about the many opportunities to support our public schools and how your business or organization can participate in the Adopt-a-School program? Join us in March!
