A Message From the Principal
Hello Madison Families!
This is it - this is the big push toward the end of the school year. If I could name a single theme for the year it would be simple, growth. The students came in fresh at the beginning of the year and they have grown into incredible, strong human beings. They have grown academically, emotionally, and physically. Have you seen how tall some of the 5th graders are?!
As we push toward the summer break we continue to push toward growth for all. This is an exciting time of year full of fun and celebration and we will continue to grow and learn along the way. We are learners!
Thank you for all of the support throughout this school year. On a personal note, it has been amazing becoming a part of the Manitowoc community and learning and growing along with you. It’s been a pleasure to get to know all of the students as individuals and to see their growth each and every day. I’m so lucky to surround myself with amazing little humans and incredible staff members each day.
Don’t forget to register for summer school! The window is still open and we will love to welcome all students to continue their growth throughout the summer.

DIRECTIONS OUTLINED IN THE MPSD SUMMER
In Mrs. Pfeifer-Peterman’s third grade class, students have learned about how nonfiction text features can help them locate information. Students chose a country and put their skills to work. They worked to investigate how other countries compare and contrast to ours. Take a look at some of their reports!
In reading and writing, fifth graders chose a problem in the community, researched and brainstormed how the problem could be improved or fixed, and then wrote letters to people (the mayor, the principal, the MPD, etc.) who could help make these changes a reality. Fifth graders read as researchers to gather information that would persuade others to get on their side of the issue, elaborated by including quotes and explaining facts in their own words, and practiced good writing by using paragraphs, punctuation, and transition words to organize their letter. So far, we have received FIVE responses from the leaders in our community. We hope to get more mail in the near future!
