Dear Madrona Families and Students,
I have had the pleasure of working at Madrona for the past nine years. I will be stepping down as the Principal of Madrona at the end of this year. Leaving Madrona is going to be hard as I have had the opportunity to build relationships with students, staff and families.
This is a great school made up of students and families from all over the world. I have learned much about the different cultures that are represented by the community of students that attend Madrona. I believe that our cultural diversity is one of the many strengths of the Madrona community.
Iam going to miss working with the staff at Madrona. Our students are very fortunate to have such caring and dedicated teachers and support staff. The staff at Madrona work very hard to provide our students with quality instruction every day.
I want to thank you for all of the support that you have shown me and the school.
Daniel Yarbrough

  • Community-led Bond Slated for November Ballot

    A community-led plan for a school construction bond will go before voters in November. The $299 million bond would replace deteriorating schools, ease overcrowding and make safety improvements at all schools. A community advisory committee developed the bond package. The school board fully accepted the committee’s recommendation and voted to place the measure on the November ballot.
