Dear Families and Friends of Madrona Elementary,

 

The staff at Madrona welcomes you to our school.  We serve a highly diverse student body made up of about 650 students with more than half of our students speaking another language other than English in their homes.  At Madrona we embrace the diversity that our student body affords us.  This year we are adding First Grade to our Dual Language program .  This program will continue with our Kindergartners who are moving to First Grade. We will have 4 First Grade classes, 2 of which will participate in the Dual Language Program.  These students are going to learn to read, speak and write in both Spanish and English.  We will continue with our Kindergarten Dual Language Program as well.
 
 

This year Madrona was awarded the Math Acheivement Award from the State of Washington.  Madrona outperformed all schools with similar demographics in this category.  This is something my staff and I are very proud of.   We are working hard here at Madrona to reache the goals that have been set by our district.  We think our kids can acheive above and beyond these goals.  

 

We will continute to have Curriculum Nights throughout the year to help parents understand the new Common Core standards and how they can help their children meet their education goals. We invite parents to participate in their child’s education by volunteering at school. Whether you can spend a day or an hour at school volunteering we welcome your support.  
 
   

We recognize our students for following our Guidelines for Success which are:

Responsible Eagles:

  • Respect self and others
  • Make safe choices
  • Listen respectfully
  • Always do your best

We have monthly Eagle of the Month Assemblies where we recognize Madrona Eagle and Scholars.  Parents are welcome to attend these assemblies when their students have been chosen.

 

The teachers at Madrona are looking forward to working with your children to help them reach their highest potential.

 

Sincerely,

Daniel Yarbrough
