Happy 608 Day!

Celebrating our city and its amazing public schools.

Today, we’re rallying together to celebrate everything that makes our city so special, especially our remarkable K-12 public schools. As we proudly represent the 608 area code, let’s take this opportunity to show our unwavering support for the backbone of our community: our educators, students, and schools. 

Our public K-12 schools are more than just buildings—they’re vibrant hubs of learning, innovation, and community. They’re where our children discover their passions, form lifelong friendships, and prepare for the future. From the dedicated teachers who go above and beyond to the students who inspire us with their creativity and resilience, our schools are a source of pride for us all. 

But supporting our public schools isn’t just the responsibility of parents or alumni—it’s a collective endeavor that requires the entire community to come together. Whether you’re a parent, a business owner, a neighbor, or an engaged citizen who cares about the future of Madison, your support matters. 

So, on this 608 Day, let’s celebrate the 1,000+ MMSD students graduating today, and show our public schools some love! Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference.  

Your donation on 608 Day will:

Sustain our advocacy programs – which now include local, state, and federal activities as well as referenda campaign services – fueling our efforts to fight for every public dollar available to Madison public schools and to reverse three-plus decades of state disinvestment.

Bolster our Teacher Support Network program, which provides free school supplies, snacks, winter gear, and other resources to classrooms across the district – saving teachers money and ensuring our students have what they need to learn.

Strengthen our Adopt-a-School program, which continues to recruit and match business and civic organizations with our schools. These partner organizations provide valuable direct support to our schools and students as tutors and mentors, and with in-kind and financial donations.
