Wow, we are less than two weeks away from the end of first semester and winter break! Getting back to "normal" seems to have made time move by quickly. It's been busy but so much fun watching classrooms return to active learning environments, hallways becoming lab spaces once again, and technology being used for more than just a Zooming device! The students and staff have brought so much back so quickly, and even managed to make it better.


We want to wish all the great Madeira families a joyous holiday season and a happy new year!


Take care and be safe!

Go Mustangs! Go Amazons! Go Madeira!

Make Up Exam Policy

If a student misses an exam for an excused absence, they can make arrangements with the teacher to make up the exam later in the week if possible. Students may use a study hall period, or make arrangements to stay after the 1pm dismissal time. Students are not permitted to take exams early. Any exams not completed during exam week for excused absences will be eligible for make-up when school resumes after winter break. There will be designated times both during and after school for make-up exams.

Helping Hands

As a service to the students and families of our community, 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.


For families who would like to donate, we will be collecting gift cards this year. We believe that this is the safest and most accessible option for our community. We are asking that the value of each gift card not exceed increments of $50.


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






The district-wide gift card collection will continue through Friday, December 10, 2021. 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.
