Don't forget that February is School of Choice month. Schools are offering tours every Tuesday morning during the month of February. So if you know of anyone that is interested in attending Madera have them stop by on Tuesday morning for the royal Madera treatment.
So how can you help Madera earn extra money while shopping??? If you shop at Ralph's, Vons, Macy's, Office Depot, Target and a few other places, your shopping dollars can help Madera. To find out how, contact Debbie Edwards or Patty Reese in the school office for all the details.
Now how many of you like Jamba Juice??? Well guess what??? You can now purchase a yummy Jamba Juice and help out our school. A new program is being offered by our local Jamba Juice Store (Madera Rd). All you have to do is go to our school office and ask for your very own Jamba Juice swipe card. Then when you go and buy a Jamba Juice at the Madera location the cashier will swipe your card. Jamba Juice will then send Madera a percentage from those sales. It's a win-win for everyone. You get that yummy treat and our school gets money and finally our students are the ones who will ultimately benefit from it all. So hurry in and get those swipe cards from Debbie and Patty. Tell a friend!
Next we have Jump Rope for Heart coming to Madera, Friday the 11th at 9:30am until 10:30am. It is a fun hour of activities for our students. We need volunteers to come out and help with some of the games. It's only for an hour, and trust me when I say it is a lot of fun. So if you are interested in helping out, please let me know.
Then on Monday the 14th we have our annual Lunch with Your Valentine. Flyers will be sent home next week detailing the event.
Finally our Book Exchange and Read Across America event is scheduled for the week of February 21st. We are off school on the 21st, so the events will start on the 22nd. Flyers will be sent home soon. Volunteers are needed to help the day of the exchange and to read to classes on Friday the 25th. If you are able to help, please let me know.
PS Our monthly board meeting is this Tuesday, the 8th at 8:15am in the MPR. Note the change of location due to the school tours.
