Principal's Message

I would like to welcome all students and their parents to Madrid Elementary School.

We hope that the students who enter our halls will experience an environment which provides an opportunity to challenge them to reach their full potential.
The staff has been trained in learning styles, reading strategies, 6 + 1 Traits of Writing, and Creating Independence through Student-owned Strategies (CRISS), all of which supports differentiating instruction to meet each students individual needs.

Through our Tiger Traits program, we hope to see students develop positive traits in the area of being Safe, Responsible, and Respectful. These are all life-long social skills, which also promote good citizenship. We hope students will thoughtfully choose to do the right things the first time, keeping in mind the importance of respect for themselves and others. If students do their best in all areas, they will develop a positive attitude that will enhance their academic progress and school experience.

When parents and teachers strive to work as a team and do what is best for each child, nothing is Impossible and Dreams become a reality.
