March Letter from Mr. Barone

 

 

February 2, 2017
Dear Madison Family,
February is going to be a fun-filled month, full of a number of school related activities. We
recently celebrated our 100th day of school. Friendship parties are right around the corner, and
we are fresh into our PRIDE Drive 2017 Challenge. If you are looking for a way to get involved
in your child’s school, February should present you with a number of great opportunities. Below
is a list of all the upcoming activities and events taking place at Madison Elementary during the
month of February:
 PRIDE Drive Challenge Begins, 2/1
 Friendship Parties, 2/14
 President’s Day/No School
 Terrific Kids Assembly, 2/21
 McFarlin Mobile Food Pantry, 2/21
 Parent-Teacher Conferences, 3/9-3/10
 Spring Break, 3/13-3/17
As I stated above, this month we began our PRIDE Drive Challenge. During the month of
February and the first couple of weeks in March, we challenge our students to earn as many
Paw PRIDE stickers as they can in a given week. This year we have challenged the student
body to collectively earn 300 Paw PRIDE stickers during this challenge window. In the event
that our students rise up and meet this challenge, a morning celebration activity will take place
the Thursday before their spring break vacation begins. We would love your support throughout
this month in pumping up your child to join in this positive school-wide opportunity.
We’re going to have a busy and exciting February here at Madison Elementary. As always, my
door is always open; don’t hesitate to get in touch, and thank you for the opportunity to
learn/work with your children.
Sincerely,
Dominic Barone, Principal

Dear Madison Family,



I think it’s safe to say that spring is here!  It’s been an unusual couple of weeks with all this warm weather.  This month is an important one full of great opportunities for learning.  Below is a list of all the upcoming activities and events taking place at Madison Elementary during the month of March:

  • 3/1 – Dr. Seuss: Wacky Wednesday; wear something wacky

  • 3/2 – Dr. Seuss: Cat in the Hat Day; wear a hat

  • 3/3 – Dr. Seuss: Sleepy Book Day; pajama day

  • 3/6-3/9 – Book Fair!

  • 3/9 – Parent Conferences

  • 3/10 – Parent Conferences/No School

  • 3/13-3/17 – Spring Break/No School

  • 3/30 – Spring Pictures

  • 3/31 – Terrific Kids/3rd 9 weeks Assembly


We will be finishing up our first annual PRIDE Drive next week.  During this drive, students have been working overtime to earn Paw PRIDE stickers for outstanding behavior, many of who have been shining examples of what it means to “lead by example”.  Our students are well on their way to earning a school-wide reward prior to the spring break holiday for outstanding Paw PRIDE.  During the second week in March we will hold parent/teacher conference just before spring break kicks off.  Please reach our to your student(s) teacher if you have yet to schedule a parent-teacher conference.  We always strive to meet with all our parents to celebrate all the learning our students have accomplished.


March is going to be a fun and fast month full of excitement, especially with Spring Break taking place right in the middle of the month.  As always, my door is always open; don’t hesitate to get in touch, and thank you for the opportunity to learn/work with your children.


Sincerely,



Dominic Barone, Principal

MONITORS NEEDED FOR STATE TESTING!!!

Our State testing window is from April 3 – April 21, 2017 for grades 3-5. Monitors are required by the state for testing security. Grades 3-5 will be involved in this testing and every classroom will need a monitor. We will gladly have you as many days as you can give. You don’t have to be available every day – even one day of volunteering will be much appreciated!!! We will be testing in the mornings, basically from 8:30 –12:00; however, we may need a few monitors in the afternoon for makeup testing or SpecialSessions. Monitors are required to participate in a short in-service training prior to monitoring. If you are interested in helping us at Madison by being a test monitor, please fill out the form below and return it to your child’s teacher or drop it off at the office. I will be in contact with you to determine your availability and to inform you of the training dates. Thanks in advance for your help and support!
