"The Cat's Tale"

October 2014

 

 

It seems as though we just started school but in actuality we are near the end of the first semester. Time flies when you are busy and we have certainly been busy. Our activities are in full swing. Soon the leaves will be falling and we will be heading into winter.

 

There are always events going on that we want our parents, students, and community to know about. We work hard to provide outlets for information our community can access.

 

 We invite you to visit our website www.madillok.com. You can find school calendars and events as well as information about our students, teacher, and classes.

 

We also offer a phone app at http://myschoolway.com/Madill.  You can access your child's grades, staff contacts, and much, much, more, all from the convenience of your smart phone.

 

We have over 1900 people signed up for our, "All Call" system. Anyone may sign up for this system. It allows us to communicate quickly with those who wish to receive information from a particular site.

 

We also want to invite our parents to attend our "Parent-Teacher Conference" on October 13th from 3:30 to 9:00p.m.

 

We also offer Wengage for our parents and students. Wengage allows you to access your child's grades, lunch account balance, and attendance. Contact your child's site for details.

 

You can catch all of the Wildcats news and events on Cable One channel 17.

 

Our students and staff will be on Fall Break October 15-17th.

 

Our construction is moving along nicely. The walls of the classrooms/safe rooms at the high school are almost complete. When they are completed, work will begin on the ceiling/roof. It will be made of eight inches of concrete. It will provide a safe refuge for the high school students and staff in the event of a storm.

 

As soon as the masons have completed laying the block walls at the high school, they will move to the elementary site and start on their three classroom/safe rooms. The slab is ready for them to start.

We have broken ground on the new Agriculture Classroom. We should keep our contractor very busy over the next few months.

 

The BOE has given me a verbal ok to start the process for our next building projects. Nothing will be official until the BOE acts but it looks as though we will present this issue to the community in early spring as our current projects are being completed. We greatly appreciate the community's support of our school.

It’s a great day to be a WILDCAT!

 

 Yours in Education,
