Home & School News


·         Apr 30 during Movie Night for students


·         Attending H&S meetings fulfills 1 hr. per family for service hours. Mark your calendars now!

·         The H&S is getting back to our roots with the use of committees instead of event sign-ups. Please come to see what's new, to meet other parents, and to build the Madonna community with us!

·         REMINDER: 10 hours of volunteer service 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.
