Our teachers know the children in each of their rooms and work very hard, performing an excellent job working
collaboratively to create the classroom lists, choosing the best possible fit for each child. There are many factors
that contribute to building the classrooms at each grade level. We take in consideration: gender, achievement,
special services, organizational skills, family situations and behavior. I also review our parent requests but as
you can see, we have much to consider when setting up our student lists. Once the lists have been completed,
the children have to be scheduled into the district computer program for the appropriate classes and then placed
into another program for our new Math SuccessMaker Program. I will only accept requests for a valid
academic reason. If a parent submits a request for the 2007 –2008 school year, he or she will need to
have their request in writing to the school office and arrange a meeting with the principal to discuss the
reason(s) by Friday May 11th. I will try to accommodate as many requests as I can, but I cannot
GUARANTEE a specific teacher for your child. Once class lists have been posted on August 24, 2007, NO
             United Way Drive
              Madison Avenue’s Student Council has organized a coin collection for United Way. This year the drive will
              take place the week of May 7th. This year the Student Council has set a goal of $1,500. If our children
donate this amount of money, the students will enjoy popsicles as they watch the Student Council challenge the teachers to a
game of kickball. Thank you in advance for your support!

          Painesville Youth Football League will hold registration on June 16, 17, 23, & 24th from 1:00pm until
           3:00pm at Madison Avenue School. For further information please contact Tom Brainard

                                                  Adam Kalb

Well spring has sprung I think. As I write this there is snow in the forecast. What a
start to spring we are off to. Despite this MASCO has had a lot going on with a lot
more still to go.

Thanks to all those that sold Malley’s Chocolates the fund raiser was a success. We
raised over $11,000. The top sellers were The Johnson Family, The Kerver Family,
The Westman Family, and The Pachinger Family. Way to go!

Thanks also to those that purchased MARCO’S Pizza. The class winner was Mrs.
Shipman’s Class. They will receive a pizza party courtesy of MARCO’S.

If you have not turned in your nominating form for an office or committee
chairperson for next year, don’t worry there is still time. We need them by
Wednesday May 9.

Upcoming events are:
MASCO General Meeting Thursday April 19.
Ice Cream Social Friday April 27.
Donuts with Dad May 10, 8:45-9:15
Muffins with Mom May 11, 8:45-9:15
MASCO General Meeting Thursday May 17. Elections will take place.
