Madison Times – 2nd Edition is Here!!

The Madison Newspaper Club hopes you enjoy our 2nd Edition of the Madison Times! The students have worked very hard to bring you a great newspaper!!!

Because we will are posting the newspaper online (which allows you to see it in color!), we are no longer sending home hard copies in your child’s folder. However, please note that last names and photos of children have been removed for internet safety reasons.  Currently registered Madison families will receive a full version via email, and we will have a supply of black-and-white hardcopies in the school office.

Thank you to all of our contributing authors and to the parents who continue to help make this newspaper a reality!


Newspaper Club – 4th and 5th Graders

Parents, we need your help! Currently, Mrs. Harris is the only parent sponsor we have and to make this successful for everyone we need 3 to 4 parents in the classroom and ask that you proactively engage the students and provide assistance with story ideas and proofreading. Please sign up for all or just a few of the dates either by email or CLICK HERE for more info! There are no fees attached to the Newspaper Club so your help as a volunteer is important.

We also need 1 parent volunteer per edition to put the stories into the Newspaper Club template in Pages and 2 parents to photocopy per edition. (I am sure this can earn you 2 front row seats to school activities!) Please email me any questions you may have about volunteering, there are many ways to be flexible so it works for you!
