Madison students and families enjoyed perusing the Scholastic Book Fair recently held at Madison School. Allison Laidig organized the event with the help of some terrific parent volunteers. Teachers made wish lists, students noted what they wanted, and books flew off the shelves as parents, grandparents or special friends made their purchases. While our sales were $500.00 over our goal the real success is measured in the support these families bring to our READ LIKE A CHAMPION campaign and in the smiles we saw as students shopped with their special guests.

During the Riley Bike-a-thon the weather cooperated as students, families, and friends rode a total of 392 miles on a windy Saturday morning in October. Nick Madlem rode 34 miles as the top boy rider while Brooklyn James rode 23 miles as the top girl rider each earning $5.00 for their effort. Brooklyn earned the title of Top Collections – Girl from 24 sponsors and Keegan Fall as Top Collections - Boy from 19 sponsors. Each student collected over $1,000.00 and $10.00 prize money. Madison Students collected pledges from family and friends for Riley Children’s Hospital totaling $5,878.00.
Monthly fire drills are a part of the routine at schools; we want to help students and staff to know how to exit a building safely in the event of a fire. But who tells students what to do at home if a fire breaks out? A team of volunteers from the Madison Township Fire Department recently brought fire prevention lessons to students at Madison.
Madison School enjoyed perfect fall weather for our Riley Bike-a-Thon on Saturday, October 7. But the bike-a-thon was not the only event on that day. It was also Mrs. Wisler's Birthday. Mrs. Wisler is an aide at Madison, attends student activities after school hours, co-chair of the Riley Bike-a-Thon, and an avid Notre Dame fan. She is a great role model for students of how to make your life count.
Riding bikes, wearing green noses, and walking laps around the playground are a few of the fun ways Madison students learn to help others. They also roll up their sleeves to organize canned food, pack meals, and collect quarters.
