April Letter from Mr. Barone
April 6, 2017
Dear Madison Family,
April is officially here, and it’s a month full of everything from state assessments to our school-wide fundraiser. Below is a list of all the upcoming activities and events taking place at Madison Elementary during the month of April:
3rd Grade State Assessments, 4/4 – 4/12
4th Grade State Assessments, 4/4 – 4/12
5th Grade State Assessments, 4/4 – 4/13
4th Grade Musical, 4/20
Honor Choir Tour, 4/21
Terrific Kids Assembly, 4/24
Dance Party for Big Brothers Big Sisters, 4/28
Throughout April, students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will be tackling their state assessments in the areas of reading, math, and science (5th only). With that being said, it’s important that all students are on time and at school ready to go by 8:00am. A good night’s sleep and a good breakfast go a long way towards helping set our students up for success each day of testing. Both academic and behavioral stamina are disrupted when students start their day off without a good night’s sleep and on an empty stomach. Help us help our students by planning ahead and arriving ready to go throughout the month of April. Don’t forget breakfast at Madison Elementary is free to all students during our two weeks of state assessment.
Also this month, Madison Elementary will be tackling a PTA sponsored fundraiser. This year, we are selling custom cookbooks for $15 each. The cookbooks will be professionally published and feature favorite recipes from our students, teachers, parents and alumni. We are hoping each Madison family will submit at least one recipe. The Madison PTA cookbook is a great keepsake, so we want as many people to participate as possible. Please touch base with your child(ren) about what they can do to help our PTA raise money for Madison Elementary.
One last reminder, as we roll into Spring, its always important to review Madison’s severe weather procedures with your children. We recently sent home a letter outlining our procedures as well as posted them on our website. Please make time if you haven’t already done so to review these very important safety procedures.
As I stated before, April has many important events/activities. 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
