“What are High Schools in the Seattle area like today?”

As part of thinking of Middle School as part of a 7 year long secondary school process, the Madison PTSA has invited High School students from local schools to share their experiences and insights.  young-adult-group.jpg

Are you and your 8th Grader curious about the different area high schools?  As a 6th or 7th grade parent, do you want to know more about what are the area options and what the students themselves experience?
Students from West Seattle High School, Sealth High School, Kennedy High School, and more will be answering questions on their experiences.  Come and join the discussion on Wednesday,  Nov 15, @ 7pm in the Madison Middle School Commons. These students could be your student’s schoolmates next year!
The PTSA General Meeting will be held prior to the panel from 6:30-7pm, also in the commons.  Everyone is welcome!

Madison’s new STOP signs

We’re so happy to announce the addition of stop signs at 45th and Spokane, making this intersection a 4-Way Stop! Thanks to Madison parent, Stephanie Kimball for years of stick-to-it-ness to get this change and advocating for the safety of our students. And thanks to SDOT for having it ready for the start of school. Crosswalks at north and south ends of the block also look freshly painted.
