Madrona Giving Tree

Madrona Giving Tree is our annual drive to help families in need within our school community.  You can help two ways: pick up a tag or two off the tree located in the main office.  Return the tag and associated gift, unwrapped to the main office by December 8.  Alternatively, you may make a cash donation here: https://checkout.square.site/buy/V62Q5HPR37RXU5EAFMV4PXMG  Donations will be used to purchase any unfulfilled gift requests and gift cards to distribute among the families.  Thank you so much for your support of these families.  All donations must be collected by December 8.  Questions?  Please reach out to Lindsay at MITViceChair@gmail.com

Madrona Children’s Theatre Show 2024 is SHREK JR.!

Art Opportunity

The Madrona Children’s Theater is looking for your imagination!  We need your talent to design the poster art for this year’s show, SHREK JR.! Any Madrona Student can enter but is limited to ONE entry per student.  Your art must be completely ORIGINAL and in black and white with only ONE color that relates to the show.  All submissions must have your NAME and CENTER on it and be received by 12/15/23 to the Main office or emailed to madronachildrenstheatre@gmail.com.  Good luck! The chosen design will be announced on 01/03/23!  This is going to be an OGRE of a good time!

Parent Meeting

There will be an MCT family meeting on December 6th at 6pm. It will be an in-person/zoom hybrid and parents are strongly encouraged to attend.  Please watch for the Zoom link to come out soon.

All 4-8th graders are invited to audition the week of December 12th.

School Levy

Are you interested in supporting the School Levy happening in February?  Teams are being created now to help with the campaign.

A School Election Team includes the building principal, teachers, paras, parents and Parent Club members.  We are hoping for about 6 members per team but more would ALWAYS BE WELCOME.  Schools would like to have teams created by December 1.

What will School Election Teams do?

Teams would engage in any or all of the following:

  • Come with your SET Team Members to the SET Launch hosted by Yes for Kids! on December 5, 2023 at the MLT Senior Center at 3:30 PM for Secondary SET Teams and 5:00 PM for Elementary SET Teams.
  • Post informational flyers in office areas.
  • Post a sign in your yard
  • Phone calling
  • Sign Waving
  • and in general, knowing the talking points and being able and willing to speak about the election,
  • …and more…
