Members of the National Jr. BETA Club of Madison Elementary attended the Virginia State Conference, February 8th and 9th, 2017. The conference was held in Williamsburg, Virginia. The club walked away taking first place in the Quiz Bowl and the team is now moving on to the National Convention held in June. In addition to the Quiz Bowl, the MES BETA Club participated in Tower of Power and Songfest. The club had two entries in the Special Talent Competitions with one student placing third and they received runner up in the Living Literature category.
The Quiz Bowl participants are ready for their next round which will be held at Disney World! Great job, Mustangs!
Madison Elementary’s Student Council Association decided to use their February meeting to give a special treat to the Custodial Team at MES. The students elected to remove the trash from all of the classrooms while the Custodial Team enjoyed some refreshments and a well deserved break! The students had a wonderful time and were excited to lend a hand.

Dear Mustang Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the new Madison! If you recently visited school you entered the building using the new main entrance and was greeted by familiar faces. Yes, construction is complete! We settled into our new classrooms and rearranged the placement of some classrooms on January 3rd. Our entire MES staff and the CCPS maintenance team pitched in to make it happen. We held a Ribbon Cutting ceremony on January 18th and acknowledged our community for their support with the bond referendum, Haley Builders and subcontractors, Board of Supervisors, School Board members, and all parent/community stakeholders. On January 19th we hosted an Open House inviting parents and community to tour the school and many did just that with much excitement. We are proud of our new addition and know our students are too. They deserve it!
Mrs. Haley, Principal
Madison Elementary School was cooking up a lot of fun with picture books and recipes at our last Curriculum Night. Students and teachers read different picture books and worked together to prepare themed snacks. There were delicious treats to match stories such as Pattern Fish, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Pancakes, Pancakes, and many others. The Parent Resource Center was also there with ideas and activities to help support the Mustang student learners.
