Dear School Community,
Summer means time for fun, family, and memories. Our rec program is in full swing with over 50 children participating.
Our building is undergoing extensive renovation and we are thankful for the hard work of our staff in coordinating all of these efforts to get us ready to open on Sept. 4. We are very fortunate to have the support of the Madison Community to provide the funding to make these upgrades which will have a long-term effect on students and families for years to come.
We look forward to sharing our building upgrades and meeting families at our annual back to school event on Aug. 28. Families can tour the building and meet staff between 5-5:30 then join us in the gymnasium for our PTO sponsored ice cream social.
If you have any questions before then, send us an email or give us a call! We look forward to seeing you all soon.
