No school Monday, Feb. 20!
February 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.
Dominic Barone, Principal
