Welcome to Madison Elementary
Madison Elementary is the school community for approximately 400 Kindergarten through 3rd grade students this year. Madison’s attendance area reaches from just north of Charleston to Empire along Cape Arago highway. The school is minutes from the Pacific Ocean, offering many opportunities for visits to the tide pools, beaches, and the South Slough Estuarine Reserve.
Madison’s staff is made up of dedicated professionals who strive for excellence in student performance while also making the learning process as engaging as possible.
We encourage parent involvement through our Booster Club and volunteering through the SMART program or helping in the classrooms or library.
Thanks goes out to all of the families who came to Madison’s Open House on Thursday. We appreciate the support you gave to your child’s learning. Studies have shown that students with involved families do better in school. Parent involvement happens in a variety of ways, from checking on homework, implementing family reading times, establishing regular attendance, to participating in school activities. Adults who value education, pass it on to their children.
Our Madison Booster Club’s annual fundraiser starts this week and runs through Oct. 7. The fundraiser involves catalog sales featuring holiday gifts and food items. The sales are meant for family, friends, co-workers and known neighbors. Please provide the supervision and guidance needed to help your child take the orders accurately and collect money. The gifts will be delivered to the school prior to the holidays and students will be responsible for getting the items to the buyer. Complete instructions are included in the packet your child is bringing home. Thank you for supporting our Booster Club and the many things they provide for the students at Madison, such as classroom supplies, assemblies, PE/recess equipment and the saltwater tank in the hallway.
Vision screening begins next week on Monday. Parents will be contacted if further screening is required for their child. Good vision is important for student learning and we are pleased to offer this service to our families.
