Dear Madrona Families,

I would like to personally welcome all new and returning students for the 2015/2016 school year!

The staff at Madrona are committed to your children’s success as students and members of our school community. To help support students with positive behavior expectations we teach all of our students our Guidelines for Success:

Responsible Eagles:
Respect self and others
Make safe choices
Listen respectfully
Always do your best

The Guidelines for Success will help students be successful at Madrona, as they move on to middle and high schools, as well as in the community at large. We would like you to go over the Guidelines for Success with your child and help them see how these will make them successful in current and future communities.

The staff at Madrona are very committed to your child’s academic success. We will be making home visits during the month of September to get to know you and your family. We are partners in your child’s education, so please feel free to call or email your child’s teachers if you have any questions. We will be providing curriculum nights throughout the year to help you understand and learn what your children are studying at school. The staff at Madrona are looking forward to making this school year one of the best for you and your children.

    We believe in real-world education. Since last year, more than 900 students in Highline have participated in internships. Students work side-by-side working professionals to learn first-hand what it takes to build a career in a wide range of fields.

  • Inspiring Writers in Kindergarten

    The kindergarten teacher team at Des Moines Elementary School has never seen students writing as well and as early in the school year as they do now. Like Des Moines Elementary, kindergarten and first-grade teachers across the district are seeing the impact of Highline's investments in early grades.
