News & Announcements

  • Almost, Maine

    The Madison Academic Theatre Dept. will present Almost, Maine by John Cariani Thursday and Friday, April 20th and 21st at 7:00 pm and Sat., April 22nd at 2:00. 
    Tickets are $5. 
    THE STORY: On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.

    Reading Scholars 2016/2017

    Each month students who wish to participate may read an approved book and prepare and present an oral book report to the Reading Scholar Panel.  At the end of their presentation they will have an opportunity to answer questions from the panel about the book or their thoughts about topics and issues  addressed by the book.  The best presentations, as judged by the panel, will receive a cash prize of $25, a “Reading Scholar T-Shirt” and other prizes.   Students can select their book, but it will need to be approved by a teacher, librarian, administrator, or a member of the Reading Scholar Committee.   Each month will have a particular focus.  Some teachers will have a suggested list of books to help you find an appropriate book.  We will attempt to give students as much freedom as possible in selecting a book of interest.
