The Escape Room

Recently fifth grade teacher, Kathy Dance, brought to the classroom a new experience for her students.

The activity engaged each student and helped them work together.

Art Smart? Yes We Are

Are we Art Smart at Madison? Yes, we are thanks to an amazing group of parents and grandparents who volunteer for this program each month.

Madison Book Fair is a Success

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.
