Emergency Preparedness for PreK
As our Pre K program grows, so does the need to equip classrooms with gear to be prepared for an emergency. Our emergency kits are well stocked. They include weather radios, flash lights, small first aid kits, and walkie talkies. With the addition of 2 more classrooms in 2018 and anticipated growth for more classrooms in the future, we hope to purchase additional supplies for our emergency bags. For this funding request, we will purchase Walkie Talkies for our program. They are used for communication with the school nurse while on the playground and when on filed trips away from our school. During severe weather, the walkie talkies allow us to stay in contact with administration and be weather aware.

Lapboards for Flexible Seating
Currently, the struggle for my students in our flexible seating classroom is they do not have a good surface to take notes or complete their activities while sitting in certain areas of our classroom. Because of this issue, the students are not using some of the comfortable choice areas of my classroom for fear they will not be able to produce quality work. I purchased 6 lapboards last year to help with this issue. My students loved them, but having only 6 presented a problem. I am hoping to add 6 more to our classroom in order for my students to continue to work in the "comfy" areas of our classroom as well as allow them to move freely into the hallways creating more seating options. They will not only get to enjoy the flexible seating, but will also have a space to work on, which makes them feel confident and comfortable while they are learning.

Take a Seat!

My classroom needs seating alternatives! Our options are restricted to the standard chair/desk or the hard/dirty floor. By offering flexible seating options, the students have a comfortable alternative to their learning environment. Plastic stools, scoop rockers, and a carpet will provide students with sensory input to help with focus, communication opportunities by practicing patience and turn taking, not to mention- FUN!

Sensory Path Package
On the right path

A sensory pathway on the floor will give children the opportunity for vestibular input which research has supported to be a direct link to increase cognitive function and help with retention of new skills.

The bottle filling stations will allow students to hydrate without having their mouths over the water fountains which is much more sanitary (5 total needed at $446 each with ideally one in each North and South wing of the building upstairs and downstairs including one by the playground). Please help us purchase healthier alternatives for our students which is especially important during the flu season.

SOS - Supporting Our Students

 Madison City Schools is excited to report the launch of its “Supporting Our Students” campaign.
This donor-supported fund will provide help for MCS students who may struggle paying for a yearbook, class field trip, ACT prep assistance, tutoring, academic fee, cap and gown – any out-of-pocket expense related to a school function, class or extra-curricular.
In the past, many wonderful teachers and staffs have generously covered such expenses - often anonymously. The new Supporting our Students initiative will be funded by donations channeled through LeanStream and doled out by a committee on a case-by-case basis. All donations to this fund will be tax deductible.
What a great resource for our families. We want to make sure all students have equal opportunities to participate in all activities without having to worry about cost. The Supporting our Students program will be promoted primarily from  Giving Tuesday through the month of December each year. However, your generous donations will be accepted throughout the year.

What impact will my gift make? 

  • $10 - Basic needs (haircuts, laundry services, hygiene supplies)
  • $25 - Credit Recovery for a high school student
  • $25 - Field Trip fee
  • $30 - Basic needs (clothing, shoes, coats, job uniform)
  • $40 - Yearbook
  • $50 - Cap & Gown
  • $75 - Assistance with Fine Arts fee 
  • $100 - Assistance with Sports fee

These are just a few examples of areas of impact that your gift will make! We appreciate the continuous support of our students!
