September is Attendance Awareness Month

Golden D$K Dollar Tally (School Wide PBIS Goal)
Madison is a PBIS school. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (or Strategies). Part of our PBIS work includes setting a school wide goal. Each class has the opportunity to earn Golden D$K Dollars. A Golden D$K Dollars is presented to a class that is exhibiting or follwing an expected behavior as a whole class. A class may earn a Golden D$K Dollar for example, by following the school wide expectation of walking quietely in the hallway, and keeping to the right. Each time a class earns 10 D$K Dollar, the principal recognises the class during morning announcements. When the school has eaned a predetermined number of Golden D$K Dollars, there follows a school wide celebration, such as Pajama Day, or Crazy Hat Day. The chart above shows, in real time, our students' progress toward meeting our next school wide PBIS goal!
Madison Giving Table
Dear Madison Families,
It’s the day before school and you suddenly realize that you haven’t been able to fill all the items on your child’s school supply list. Fear not, the Madison community is here to help! Madison has a limited supply of basic school supply items, such as pencils, notebooks, rulers, crayons, and backpacks. If you are in need of some school supplies for your child, please consider stopping by the Madison Giving Table during our Tuesday night “Back-to-School Event” and taking just what your child needs. (The Madison Giving Table will remain in the hallway until supplies run out.)
Maybe you bought duplicate school supply items and don’t know what to do with them. That’s easy! Simply bring them in and stack them neatly on the table.
See you soon!
Madison Elementary Principal, &
OSD McKinney-Vento Liaison
Supply Lists 2016-17
The link below will take you to our 2016-17 Supply Lists. Please note that this year Madison received some very generous contributions from Capital City Rotary, First United Methodist Church of Olympia (FUMCO), and Deb Bigelow (community member and volunteer). These organizations and individuals have "adopted" our Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students and their donations will pay for most of the items on the Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade supply lists! If you wish, you may show your appreciation by making a monetary donation to the "Madison Education Foundation". The Madison Education Foundation helps fund assembles, after school enrichment classes, and special school projects not ordinarily funded by the district. Thank you!
