FFA sweeps District 6 South Sub-District Parliamentary Procedure competition
The Madison-Plains FFA chapter will send two teams to the district-level Parliamentary Procedure competition in December after a first place finish by each in a recent contest, which encourages students to learn to effectively participate in a business meeting and to assist in the development of their leadership, research and problem-solving skills. 
Diving into Digital Art
This year, fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade art classes at Madison-Plains Intermediate School are documenting their artwork digitally. Using iPads and their Google Drive accounts, each student will photograph and upload their finished pieces. At the end of each nine weeks, these files will be accessible to students and their families on any internet-capable device. Students can view, print and share their work with others digitally. 
Color wheel turns discovery
Students in Alecia McCafferty's art classes at the Junior High were doing some "discovery learning." Through their efforts and only a few clues and definitions from the teacher, they worked in groups and were able to figure out where the colors were located on the wheel by mixing primary colors. 
Board sets eligibility requirements
The eligibility policy adopted by the Board of Education this month sets a clear standard for all students who participate in extracurricular activities. Those in grades 9-12 who carry less than a 1.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale or who receive more than one failing grade in the previous grading period will not be offered the privilege of participation. 
Your Schools. Your Choice.
At Madison-Plains, we are serious about parent and community input. Your voices drive what we do for our students. You told us to make our schools stronger, make our courses of study more rigorous and we agreed. Much of your feedback help set the Madison-Plains Improvement Plan into action. And, as a result, we are making strides. 
Extra! Extra! Community fliers now online!
A new section featuring community-wide events and information has been added to the district's website. The M-P Fliers Community Connect page -- available from the Parents and Community tabs -- will serve as a repository for all of the requests the district receives throughout the year to distribute materials to students and their families. Subscribers to the page will receive notifications through an RSS feed. The online clearinghouse creates a streamlined resource for parents and other members of the community.
