Dear Madrona Family,

It saddens me to see our very empty events calendar. In light of keeping our community as healthy as possible, MIT has cancelled all MIT events through April 12 per the Edmonds School District Guidelines announced on Friday, March 6. Our committee chairs are working hard to reschedule as many of the events as possible. Volunteering in classrooms is still encouraged. If you have questions about this, please contact your child's center.

Please keep up-to-date with Edmonds School District current COVID-19 information here .

Thank you for your patience during the next several weeks as changes happen. We will do our best to keep you updated about moving and/or new dates for activities. If you have any questions, please reach out.
Wash your hands and keep healthy.

Molly Tobias
MIT Chairperson

Book Giveaway Donations

Madrona Library is gearing up for our annual "Great Book Giveaway" event taking place the last two weeks of school. We are gladly accepting gently used books for Preschool through Middle School Readers. If your family is doing spring cleaning of their bookshelves, please keep us in mind. The event is a lot of fun and we try to send each interested student home with at least one gently used book for the summer. Donations may be delivered to library before school at 9:00- 9:15 or after school at 3:50 - 4:05 or you may have your child bring them when they come to library class. If you have any questions, please email the librarian at this email
