Dear Madison Family,
April is a month full of everything from state assessments to our school carnival. 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, 4/1 – 4/5
- 4th Grade State Assessments, 4/1 – 4/5
- 5th Grade State Assessments, 4/1 – 4/12
- Kindergarten Field Trip, 4/11
- McFarlin Mobile Food Pantry, 4/16
- 1st Grade Field Trip, 4/16
- 2nd Grade Field Trip, 4/16
- Terrific Kids Assembly, 4/25
- Madison PTO School Carnival, 4/25
- No-School/Professional Development, 4/26
- 5th Grade Camp Classen Trip, 5/1
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 the start of school. 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 hosting our annual school carnival, sponsored by our wonderful PTO. Don’t forget that there will be food (while supplies last), fun, and games for all at the Madison carnival.
It’s that time of year when we ask that you provide us with some feedback on how we are doing here at Madison. Below is the link for parents to take a short survey:
One last reminder, as we roll into Spring, it’s always important to review Madison’s severe weather procedures with your children. We are sending home a letter outlining our weather procedures, as well as posting them on our website. Please make time if you haven’t already done so to review these very important safety procedures.
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
