Welcome to Madison Elementary
Monthly letter from Mr. Barone:
September 1, 2016
Dear Madison Family,
We are off to a running start at Madison Elementary! We couldn’t have asked for a smoother start to the 2016-2017 school year. This letter is a first of many monthly letters that you can expect from me at the beginning of each month. I’ve found through the years that a monthly letter from the principal helps to summarize upcoming events, provides a platform to discuss popular topics, and reminds our community of what they can expect from Madison Elementary and its staff.
With that being said, I wanted to remind you all that we have many exciting events and important dates that I don’t want you to forget. Please see the list below for those activities and events that will take place at Madison Elementary throughout the month of September:
Labor Day Holiday, 9/2 – 9/6 (no school)
Book Fair, 9/20 – 9/23
Turn OFF Your TV Night (and Book Fair), 9/20
Terrific Kids Assembly, 9/26
Healthy Me Screenings, 9/27
On another note, I wanted to also take some time to review the arrival procedures for students and visitors (both adult and non-student). We live in a very different time and it can often feel very foreign when compared to our own childhood memories of when we ourselves attended elementary school. I feel very strongly that one of my main responsibilities at Madison Elementary is to create an environment that is safe and secure for all students to learn and thrive. Please support the Madison staff and students by following the outlined drop-off procedures for accessing the school building. All visitors must check-in through the office after 7:45am before accessing the school building.
Thanks for your support and great start to the new school year. Remember, my door is always open; don’t hesitate to get in touch, and thank you for the opportunity to learn from and work with your children.
Arrival/Drop Off Reminders:
Remember that many of our students arrive to school on foot, please adhere to traffic patterns outlined below.
If you need to park, please use the parking lot on the west side of the school. Please respect the flow of traffic to ensure safety for all.
If you are dropping off your child and the side doors (denoted by the triangle below) are closed, and there is not a teacher present, please park and make sure your student walks around to the main entrance (denoted by the star below).
Finally, remember that the side yards along George Ave. are private property and all parked cars will be subject to ticketing/towing.
