Students and Personal Communication Devices📱⌚
A gentle reminder that students are not to have access to personal communication devices (cell phones, smart watches) during the school day. We appreciate your support with this expectation to ensure kids are fully engaged in the school day. Keeping personal devices at home or in backpacks during school hours is best. Madeira City Schools is not liable for lost/stolen or damaged personal items.
If you need to access your student(s) or to share a message with them, calling the Front Office and/or sending a message to your child's teacher is best. We appreciate your support in keeping our students safe and engaged while at school!
Help us stock the MES Care Closet!
MES is opening a Care Closet to help give back to families in need within our community. We are collecting school supplies, backpacks, clothes, frozen food/non-perishables, and household items (such as laundry detergent, shampoo/conditioner, deodorant, etc.).
If you would like to donate, feel free to bring these items to the MES Front Office. If you have any questions, please connect with our School Counselors, Christin Bohrofen and Emory Bergdoll.
Thank you for your amazing generosity!
PikMyKid is LIVE!
If you are a new family to Madeira there is a "parent connection" code that should have come home with your child. Download the app, scan the code, and you should be connected to your child(ren) in the app.
FOR ALL FAMILIES - PLEASE READ

A Message from Jessie Matheny:
We wanted to notify you that Champions After School Program will be closed on September 8th, 2023.
We will be open for the Before Care Session. We are doing this, so the Changing Hands Sale has time to set up and check everyone in. If you have any questions, please let me know.
