A photographer will be in the building next week either Tuesday or Thursday to take photos of our students and clients in action. They will be capturing images that encompass our mission tenants: Faith Formation, Educate, Empower, Employ. Students who do not have permission to be photographed will be exempt from having their photos published.

Please make sure we have your most recent phone number, so you will receive snow closure and other messages through our Parent Reach System.

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.

REMINDER: 10 hours of volunteer services is a requirement for families at Madonna. Our Home and School Organization is working to help you meet those hours by providing many opportunities throughout the year. Please remember that this is considered a portion of the tuition and hours not served will be billed to the families at the rate of $20 per hour. Thank you for your help with this.
