Welcome to Madison Elementary
Monthly letter from Mr. Barone:
October 3rd, 2016
Dear Madison Family,
September is behind us, which means that Fall Break is just around the corner! October is always a month that is full of exciting opportunities and experiences for our students. Below is a list of those activities and events taking place at Madison Elementary this month:
Fall Break (no school), 10/6 – 10/7
Red Ribbon Week, 10/24 – 10/28
5th Grade All City Choir Performance, 10/25
3rd Grade Musical Program, 10/27
Fall Parties & Character Dress-Up Day, 10/28
Parent/Teacher Conference, 11/3 – 11/4
No School, 11/4
As I said, we have a lot of fun and exciting activities planned for the month of October. I wanted to take a moment to talk about our Fall Parties and Character Dress-Up day on Friday, October 28th. Dressing up at school is a memory from my own experiences as an elementary school student that has stuck with me through the years. While we are excited to create this opportunity for our students, I wanted to go over a couple reminders so that everyone’s experience that day is a fun one. First, weapons or replica weapons of any kind will not be allowed. Those items, if part of a child’s costume, should remain at home. Also, no masks or face paint will be allowed. We have students of all levels and ages at Madison and the last thing any of us want is for a student’s learning to be disrupted because they are scared or upset due to a costume in the building. Finally, because we will be dressing up on Friday, October 28th, we will not be dressing up on Monday, October 31st. Let’s make our Fall Parties and Character Dress-Up Day a success for all students by remembering the requests made above.
Once again, my door is always open; don’t hesitate to get in touch, and thank you for the opportunity to learn/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.
