Hey Warhawk Families! Have you heard about Madison High School’s awesome 2017-18 yearbook? It’s $95 dollars and there are a few ways to buy the book. You can purchase it at school through the finance office (cash only) and on jostens.com/yearbooks. This year’s theme is all about unity and how students come together as one. The yearbook staff has worked extremely hard so you can see all the great things that Madison offers and how involved all the students are. So don’t forget to buy a yearbook and help your student capture these memories forever.
