May Letter from Mr. Barone

May 4, 2017




Dear Madison Family,


It’s hard to believe that there are only 16 days of learning left before the 2017 summer break begins.  Before May 25th gets here, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and get excited about what a great year we have had.  Below is a list of all the upcoming activities and events taking place at Madison Elementary during the month of May:


  • Teacher Appreciation Week, 5/8 – 5/12

  • Senior Day Assembly (morning), 5/15

  • Volunteer Reception, 5/15

  • Terrific Kids Assembly, 5/19

  • 9 Weeks Awards Assembly, 5/19

  • Track Day, 5/19

  • 5th Grade Recognition Program (evening), 5/23

  • Super Kids Day, 5/25

  • Last Day of School, 5/25


May kicks off with us recognizing Teacher Appreciation Week.  This time of year is always a great time of the year to reach out to your student’s teacher and let them know how much you appreciate them.  Our PTA will be showering our teachers with gifts and special treats all week long.  Also, May is always a good time of year to double check that you are prepared for the next school year, especially ensuring that you have an active parent portal account with Norman Public Schools.  The enrollment process in Norman is completely automated and online, so if you come back in August and you do not have an active parent portal account, you may find the enrollment confirmation process frustrating.  Please take this month to make sure you have an up-to-date parent portal account with Norman Public Schools.  We will be sending home a follow-up letter for parents before the school year is out discussing this further to ensure that everyone is ready to go in August.


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,
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, PrincipalMarch 2nd, 2017Dear Madison Family,

Cold-Weather Dismissal Procedures for all Car-Riders:

 

 

When the wind-chill is 32° or below we will dismiss all car riders from inside.  Please help us with following the cold-weather procedures outlined below:

 

  • All Pre-K and K will be dismissed at the west end of the parking lot;
  • All 1st-5th at the east end of the parking lot;
  • We ask that all parents stay in your cars to pick up your students;  
  • Please put the yellow name card in your window so it is visible for the person calling student names;  
  • If you typically greet your child as they exit the building, please park and meet them outside the main office doors located near the bus lane;
  • All dismissal doors by the parking lot will be used only for car riders and will be exit only;

 

We appreciate your cooperation with these procedures when weather is a factor to ensure that the dismissal process goes smoothly and quickly.  

 

Again, thank you for your patience and understanding,
