Some of our local senior citizens gathered at Madeira High School (MHS) recently for bagels, coffee, and conversation about what’s going on in the school district.
Madeira Superintendent’s Senior Citizen Community Coffees are held each fall and spring to give friends and residents a chance to catch up with what’s going on in the district. Superintendent Kenji Matsudo talked to the group about upcoming events, then turned the program over to two people who know firsthand what’s happening in Madeira Schools – seniors Ky’ree McCray-Brown and Grace Rindels. The students talked to the senior citizens about their classes, activities, experiences, future hopes, and what being a Madeira student means.
“It’s great to see and talk with some of the Madeira residents that laid the strong foundation our schools are built on." Mr. Matsudo stated. "It’s important for us to keep in touch with this group. These coffees are an informal way to share the good news that happens in our schools.”
Among the attendees were former Madeira staff members, parents, and grandparents of Madeira students, and community members – some who attended Madeira Schools themselves.
Any Madeira senior citizens who would like to be added to the mailing list for future coffees or other district senior citizen events are asked to contact Diane Nichols at firstname.lastname@example.org or 924-3707.
