MES School Food Pantry

We are excited to announce that Madison Elementary School is partnering with the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank starting this month and beginning a new program here called Food 4 Families.  Food 4 Families is a program of the Fredericksburg Food Bank that is designed to help alleviate childhood hunger in our community through provision of emergency food to children and their families at school.

As a need is identified by or brought to the attention to the school staff, emergency food will be provided through the School Pantry, as a more readily accessible source of food assistance to families in crisis.  Food 4 Families is available to any student enrolled at Madison Elementary School.  For more information, please contact me at mgermeroth@ccps.us or (804) 448-2171.

MES Snow Buddy Program

Today – December 15th

This holiday season is supposed to be a time for joy and happiness as we celebrate time with our families.

For many people in our area, however, the holiday is anything but that. How can you help? Sponsor a Snow Buddy TODAY!

Choose a Snow Buddy from the tree located in the main office starting NOW!  Then, send in an un-wrapped gift for that buddy by Tuesday, December 15th. The gifts will be passed out to the buddies on December 16th – 18th.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Germeroth at 448-2171 or mgermeroth@ccps.us

Career Lessons for November

Classroom guidance lessons will focus on Career Exploration for the month of November.  The students are very excited about Career Day which is coming up soon!  We are still in need of volunteers.  Please contact me if you are able to come in and talk with the students about your career.  Career Day this year is Friday, November 13th from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

A great website to explore for Career help is Virginia Career View.  If you would like to look up this site at home it is:  www.vacareerview.org.  Students may search different types of careers, play Career Town, and print career puzzles too!  There is also information for parents as well.

November is a busy month here at Madison Elementary School!
