Go Madeira!

Light Up Madeira!

Kick off the Winter Season by lighting up Madeira during our annual City Luminary! Kits are on sale now!

 

Madeira’s 4th Annual Luminaria will kick off the holiday season on December 5th – same day as St Nicholas Sleigh Ride! The MMS PTO is selling luminary kits to Madeira residents AND businesses to light up the streets of Madeira on our city’s St. Nick night.

 

Each kit will contain materials and setup instructions for 10 luminaries. 10 luminaries = approximately 50 feet of street frontage. If you have a larger lot, or want to light up more areas (ex: walkways, driveways, etc.) or for holiday parties, etc. we would encourage purchasing multiple kits.

 

This year, kits will be delivered on or before November 19th. We are doing delivery only this year!

 

The Middle School PTO is excited to continue the tradition of lighting up Madeira as a kick-off to the winter holiday season. We hope you will join us! The kits are $12.

 

You can purchase online with a credit card at www.madeiramiddlepto.com

Helping Hands

The Helping Hands program is intended to facilitate Madeira’s ability to provide support for those of us in need through the school year. We understand that hardships can arise unexpectedly, and we know that there are many people in our town that very much want to help. Helping Hands is an effort to make the connections that help our community be a better place.

 

As we approach the holiday season, we have families reaching out to us for extra assistance for the holidays. The immediate concern is Thanksgiving, so if you have a little extra that you would be willing to donate to the cause, Kroger gift cards are appreciated. If it would be more convenient to donate another way, please reach out to a school counselor.

 

The district-wide gift card collection has begun and will continue through December 10, 2022. Donations can be dropped off to any school building, or sent in with your student in an envelope addressed to the building specific school counselor.

 

While all gift cards are accepted and appreciated, we are requesting gift cards to the following:

-Kroger

-Target

-Walmart

-Amazon

 

Thanks from the Helping Hands!
