Around Campus

Eighth Grade Semi Formal, May 9th

Madras Middle School Eighth Grade presents an “Evening Under the Stars” on Saturday, May 9, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Madras Middle School. This eighth grade semi-formal is for Madras Middle School Students only, and the cost of admission is $20.00 per person and includes a catered meal, drinks, snacks, and entertainment (DJ). This special event is for Madras students only and gives them an opportunity to socialize and have fun with their classmates to celebrate their eighth grade year. It is our hope that every student will be able to attend. (Tickets will be available for purchase at school during homeroom April 15 - May 6.)

We expect our students to represent Madras well, especially since the dance is being held on a weekend night. Any student who is involved in any serious incident resulting in office referral that requires administrative actions, will not be eligible to attend. Specific details are outlined in a parent letter that will go home on April 14th. In addition to keeping behavior in check, all students will need to clear up all lunch charges and book fines to participate.

From the Eagle Cafe.....

We are very excited to announce a new item at Breakfast, a "Morning Snack Pack". It will now be a second choice at breakfast. Students and teachers will have the option to purchase a regular breakfast or a Morning Snack Pack (to be named at a later date). The Morning Snack pack will have all the components of a reimbursable meal (with or without a drink) and will follow the nutritional guide lines. We hope to attract the nontraditional breakfast crowd to increase our participation at breakfast. This is a must see item! Join us for breakfast and grab one for yourself.
