Hi Madrona Families!
Week two of the year…How are you feeling? Kids are starting to settle back into routines. Kindergarten kiddos are getting a feel for things as they join the rest of the students this week.
Thank you for patience as everyone learns the parking lot drop off and pick up situation. The kids are quickly learning to listen for their names as they are called. Parents lining up in a double line on the west side of the parking lot is helping slightly with the build up of traffic out on the street. Please remember to pull up close to the car in front of you so we can squeeze as many people in our lot as possible…and turn your lights off. Turns out that drains your battery pretty quick (or so I hear….) I spotted a cop sitting out on the road a couple of times this week. He’s going to want you to move along and circle the block if the parking lot is full. And remember, we do have buses that cover the whole district. If it works for your family, we encourage you to allow your child to ride the bus. If you have a young child, the school will help you work out a buddy system to make sure your child gets to the bus and off in the right spot.
Did your child bring home a Picture Day form? Picture Day is happening Wednesday, September 22. Start practicing best smiles!
We have our first school event coming up this month! The Fun Run is happening Thursday, September 23! This all-school run/walk will take place out on the track. It’s a fun way for the students to show some school spirit. Volunteers will be needed for set up and tear down. There will be absolutely no contact with staff or students during that time. Please watch for a call for volunteers.
Our first MIT meeting of the year takes place this Wednesday, September 15 at 6:30. Our principal will give a quick update and we will present a budget overview. I’d love to hear from you if you are interested in any volunteer opportunities this year. Hope to see you there!
