- A reminder that children of Madeira residents that will be five (5) years old on or before September 30, 2016 are eligible to be registered for Kindergarten for the 2016-2017 school year using this new online process: 1) A pre-registration survey link is on our website for parents to identify their preference for AM or PM Kindergarten or the Optional All-Day Kindergarten Program, handled in the order in which they are received. 2) The online registration will be active this week and all forms should be completed by March 4, 2016. 3) After completing the online portion, please call Sonja Burniston at 985-6080 to schedule a 10-minute registration meeting for either March 14 or 15 to review your paperwork and finalize your child's kindergarten registration. Visit Kindergarten Registration for all links and a full description of the process. We are excited to welcome the graduating class of 2029!

- Registration for Marchtoberfest, the annual Madeira Schools Foundation Auction, is now open at 2016 Auction Information. You can also purchase raffle tickets and preview auction items and starting March 1, bid on items whether you attend the auction or not. This year's event will be held March 19 at 6 PM in St. Gertrude Parish Center.

Proceeds support Madeira's programs and provide classroom materials from technology purchases/upgrades, to arts and athletic enhancements, to funding educational experiences like our Day of Service and Global Leadership Summit. The Foundation also contributes to scholarships for students and alumni, and supports the PTOs at each school. If you'd like to support the auction through a donation or sponsorship, please contact Troy Bartson at tbartson@cinci.rr.com, Angie Schilling at ams4192@fuse.net or David Eberly at DEberly@emclawyers.com. Looking forward to seeing you there!
