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.
As the temperatures drop, we know that fall is fading and we are beginning to slide into winter weather. We want our students to benefit from fresh air and be able to expend some energy outside whenever weather permits. With cooler temperatures, please be sure your child has a warm sweater or jacket so that they can participate in our Laps program and play outside, comfortably, during recess time.
Getting our students out and active is important as we help them meet the recommended 60 minutes of exercise every day. Going outside prevents stir-craziness, encourages deep breathing, and provides physical activity that doesn’t occur with indoor recess. While the South Coast has its share of rainy days, it is rare for classes to have all of their recesses inside. Regardless of the weather report, make sure your students are prepared for outside play.
During our warmer fall days, many coats were left behind as the sun warmed up, and students neglected to collect them from the playground, cafeteria, hallway or gym. Many of those items are now hanging in our Lost and Found. Please be sure to check for missing items on our growing line-up of forgotten apparel. Remember to write your student’s name on their clothing, backpacks, and lunch containers, to help with identification and recovery.
REMEMBER, please send you child each day with the expectation, they will be going outside and enjoying some healthy fresh air.
