As a result of this season's inclement weather and our responsibility to meet the state of Kansas' requirements for hours completed during the school year, several adjustments to the school calendar have been made. One of the changes involves our original date for Kindergarten Rodeo, April 22. April 22 is now a student contact day so as a result we are moving our Kindergarten Rodeo to Friday, April 19. We will have three 30-minute sessions (8:45-9:15, 9:30-10:00, and 10:15-10:45). Please call the Madison Office at 856-0400 to schedule your rodeo time.

Are you looking for something to do on the ice day? Why not get started on March's Kindness Challenge - Making Kindmarks. This month, our kindness challenge is to leave some “kind”marks in our library. We challenge you to make a bookmark with a kindness theme. Use pictures and words to remind others to choose kind everyday. Our Counselor Crew and Book Worm student council students will hide the bookmarks in books throughout our Madison Library. When you find one, you can keep it, or leave it in the book to keep spreading kindness. #choosekindness
