December Letter from Mr. Barone

December 1, 2016

Dear Madison Family,

Winter is in full swing and the holiday season is right around the corner!  I hope you all were able to enjoy time with family and friends over the Thanksgiving break.  With that said, December is a short month as far as the number of school days goes.  I want to remind you all about upcoming activities and events taking place at Madison Elementary during the month of December:

  • Multi-Cultural Fair, 12/8 @ 5:30pm

  • 4th Grade Field Trip, 12/8

  • Winter Class Parties, 12/16

  • Winter Holiday Break/No School, 12/19 – 1/2

This time of the year it always helps to review with your child our Madison Paw P.R.I.D.E. expectations to support positive behavior throughout the school.  

“P” stands for Positive Attitude;

“R” stands for Respect;

“I” stands for Integrity;

“D” stands for Self-Discipline;

“E” stands for Empathy  

All of these character traits are important parts of our school-wide approach to positive school behavior.  Please take time this month to speak with your child about what it means to show “Paw PRIDE”.  Pay special attention to emphasizing respect and self-discipline when you talk with your child.  Ask them what these words mean to them and how they show it at school.  We will be focusing specifically on both these pieces as a campus all month long.  Hold on tight, because December is going to be a fast fun-filled ride!  

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.
