About PATS

What is PATS?

Parents and Teachers at Simis (PATS) exists to develop and enrich student educational achievement by supporting our community of students, parents and staff at Madison Simis Elementary.

How we accomplish our mission:

PATS serves to both foster and preserve a strong relationship between parents, teachers and administrators at Simis.

PATS raises funds to provide resources and support programs that are not funded through Simis or Madison District budget.

PATS provides opportunities for parents and staff to work together and maintain direct communication.

Our success is measured by student achievement as well as parent and teacher satisfaction.
