Madison Elementary School was excited to show their appreciation for veterans and current women and men serving in the United States armed forces this week. The second grade students held a Veteran’s Day performance where students sang patriotic music and read letters of thanks they had written. The veterans in attendance then walked in a parade around the halls as the students and staff cheered them on to show their appreciation.
MES Student Council Association held elections last Friday. The students running for office had an opportunity to make posters and campaign. The elementary students listened to presentations from all of the candidates and voted on the officers. Once the ballots were tallied the 2017-18 SCA officers were announced!
Fathers and daughters dressed up and came down to MES for a special dance. They enjoyed delicious treats and had a delightful time dancing together. The families are looking forward to many more special events like this to attend in the upcoming months!
Today the halls at Madison Elementary School were filled with different characters from books and movies. The students and staff enjoyed seeing the different costumes and trying to guess which book they came from. The teachers were excited to show their students new characters from their favorite books!
Madison students are excited for reading as they participate in our tradition of Reading Buddies! Each month upper elementary students are paired with primary grade students and they practice reading to each other. The students are always excited to work with their buddies and share the new stories they have been reading.
Third grade classes worked on a stem project last week. The students had to create an Egyptian pyramid out of toothpicks and marshmallows. The students enjoyed this engineering challenge.
