For Madrona moms and dads trying to decide where to send their child to school can be stressful. Madrona K-8 has seen some changes with a new principal this year and can expect more changes with the upcoming school boundary adjustment; yet despite the transition, local Madrona parents and their children are enjoying their experience.
A week or two ago, there was some discussion on Madrona Moms about Madrona K-8 School and below is one local neighborhood mom’s response. With her permission, we are republishing her letter here so as to hopefully assist other Madrona parents to gain a better insight into our local elementary school:
Re: An open letter to CD parents regarding neighborhood schools
Thank you for posting this. We too have chosen Madrona for our kindergarten daughter and couldn’t be happier right now. I’ll do whatever it takes to help dispel the myths and build the Madrona K8 brand that represents all the special stuff that’s going on, including the strong community it builds within our neighborhood! We’ve met new neighbors that we didn’t know before this fall. I knew it was going to be a convenient choice since we could walk to school, but I didn’t expect the comfort I was going to feel knowing our daughter was nearby.
And, most importantly, our daughter is learning – in this short amount of time, she is reading, counting to 100 and has learned all kinds of new social skills. Her class size is small and both teachers maintain an incredible amount of order throughout the day. Our expectations have been exceeded and so far, we are very happy with our choice.
I would be happy to talk personally with anyone considering Madrona K8 next year.
Thanks Again, Stacey Kryman
