Thank you Mrs. Rafas for an outstanding 8 weeks of Art for the Madison School Children! See the thank you from the Madison Teachers on behalf of the 630 students who benefited from the PTO Art Rescue Program. The Art Rescue Program was created through the effort of Mrs. Pam Cofre and the Art Rescue Auction held in August 2011. Through her efforts enough money was raised to bring Art to the Madison Children for 8 weeks this spring. Mrs. Rafas, the former Art Teacher from Madison school came back during these 8 weeks and brought Art back to the Children at Madison School.
School District 69 is hosting one more Book Fair this year to Support Literacy and help the district families build their home libraries. Edison will be hosting this fair with books for all ages during the week of May 30th. We are very excited about this fair because for every book you purchase you will get one of equal or lesser value free! At the Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for kids of all ages, from preschool to 8th grade, as well as books of interest to parents. Mark your calendar and watch for updates about specific times, and get ready for great deals while promoting literacy. Where else can you buy two books for the price of one!? And, you can contribute books to your child's classroom library to thank the teachers for the wonderful 2011-2012 school year! The Book Fair is always a great way to get everyone excited about reading. We hope to see you there! More will follow once the schedule has been finalized.
