Madison participates in the Character Counts! Program, which teaches the 6 Pillars of Character to foster responsibility and citizenship. Kids take a pledge and promise to be caring, fair, respectful and to always do their best. Every other month one of the Pillars is specifically concentrated on for that time.
Another fun program is The Battle of The Books. Third, 4th and 5th graders who join read at least 10 books per school year. Then teams are formed and they battle against each other by answering questions about the books they’ve read. At the end they have a Championship Battle against other local schools.
The Madison Morning Milers are kids who walk or run laps before class every morning.
Children can also participate in the Hands on Art Program. Kids have 6 projects per year to complete based on a specific subject or theme which are then displayed in the school.
