Madonna School Parents Facebook Page

Madonna School Parents have a closed group Facebook page. It was designed for parents to have communication with one another without outside individuals reading or contributing. It is a closed group and you must request to join. Peg Carney is the administrator of the group and will add you to the members list if you choose to be a member. To do so you must first have a Facebook account. On your page (usually the left side, click on Groups. In the search section type in Madonna School Parents( then click on the magnifying glass at the top), and you will get a list of sites. Ours should be at or near the top and has a circle with a portion of our Madonna logo on it. Click on this. You will then get access to the “front” page of the site. There is a box marked “+ Join Group”. Click on this and the request will come to me (Peg). I will then add you as a member and you will have access to the site. Call me if you have questions. Peg C.
