Spring Break

Message from our PTSA

Hello, Madison families! It's time to gear up for our Spring Fling and Color Run on March 10, 2023. It will run from 2:00 to 4:30 with the Spring Fling open to all students. The color run portion is a fundraiser for our PTSA, raising money to help with programs and incentives for the students and staff. The cost to participate in the color run is $15. We will also have concessions for sale at the event, or for pre-order ahead of time. We could also use parent volunteers to help us out that day. Set up would start at 1:00pm and clean up would occur after dismissal. Please sign up to help us out if you can!
