Veteran’s Day Program

Our annual Veteran’s Day program will be this Friday (November 10th) at 9:00 a.m. in the middle school gym.  This year our speaker is a Madeira parent, Mr. Jason Cowden who is a veteran of the United States Army and served two tours of duty for our nation – one in Iraq and the other in Afghanistan.  We are honored to have Mr. Cowden speak with us on November 10th and hope you will join us for this day and celebrate those who have gone before us to protect and defend the freedoms we enjoy.

In support of our troops, the 8th grade National Junior Honor Society is sponsoring a drive for our United States Military.  Items we receive will be donated to the Yellow Ribbon Support Center, who creates care packages for deployed soldiers.  Help us collect items to give to our troops and please bring these with you this Friday.  We need:

  • Hard candies (no chocolates)
  • Personal hygiene and feminine products (travel-size, unscented)
  • Pre-packaged snacks (no chocolates)
  • Drink mixes (no liquids)
  • Gum
  • Beef jerky, slim jims
  • Books, magazines
  • Sunscreen
  • Batteries
  • Laundry PODS, sturdy container
  • Protein bars
  • Breath mints
  • Granola bars
  • Dried fruits, re-sealable package
  • Sunflower seeds

The NJHS is sponsoring this within our school’s LIGHT program and students are competing for House points!  The House with the most donated items will receive 500 points toward our yearly competition and total.  Boxes are located in the main hallway by the gym as you come to the program this Friday.  Thanks for your support and thanks to our NJHS students for shining their LIGHT for our troops!

Parking for Veteran’s Day

When coming to the middle school for Veteran’s Day please park at the school and at Sellman Park.  We want to keep traffic to those locations and allow our neighboring businesses to keep their parking lots open for their customers.  Our staff will park at the Swim Club that day, and there may be additional parking there as well.  Thanks for your help!
