Volunteering At Madison

Madison in the process of bringing volunteers back into the building. To be a volunteer, you must be fully vaccinated (booster not required) and have completed this volunteer background check.

 

At this point, we would love to put together two teams of volunteers. The first team would help with prepping materials in the office during times that work for each volunteer. The second team would help with supervision at recess and lunch. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these teams, please complete this brief form. This form needs to be completed by January 17th.

 

I also have individual teachers that are interested in in-class support. Those specific teachers will reach out to their current families to gauge interest. If your teacher is able to have volunteers in the classroom, they will reach out to you. Please do not contact teachers about volunteering unless they reach out first.

Questions?

Our teachers, school staff, and principal, are always happy to answer your questions, or to hear your feedback and suggestions

 

It is a good idea to always contact your child’s teacher first if you have a question or concerns about your child’s schooling. You can find the contact information for your child’s teacher by using the Staff Directory which can be found here>>> Staff Directory, or by hitting the “Reply” button from any email communication you have already received from your child’s teacher.

 

You may also call the front office at (360) 596-6300 if you need to leave a voice message, or if you would like to schedule an appointment with the school principal.

Madison Student Supplies (Adopt a Class)

As many of you know, Madison is the only school in the Olympia School District that provides Back to School supplies at no cost to all our students. We are able to do this by generous contributions in the form of supplies or monetary donations. To get a head start on fundraising for September’s School Supplies, a Madison Wish List has been created on Amazon for community members to browse and select items they wish to purchase for our students. Madison provides school supplies to all new students who enroll throughout the year. You can help provide school supplies for all our new students and also for our Adopt a Class program by checking out the Madison Wish List at http://a.co/8PPiCMC . Please contact the principal if you have any questions about Madison’s Adopt a Class program.
